    $61 would be nice. I found it funny that Zack's came out with the exact opposite analysis an hour before Goldman recommended. Someone is correct. Personally I'd like to see CHL trading like it used to 7 years ago - those were fun trading days.

    Cramer was touting AOL this morning then this story popped up on The Street. There was also an online blurb midday in the WSJ taking the opposite stance but alluding to the article in Forbes by that hedge fund guy last month who thinks the merger would be the best thing since sliced bread.

    Mayer is under a lot of scrutiny and AOL is seen as the kiss of death in the Valley. If she were to buy AOL, she'd better get used to being a stay at home mom once Yahoo gives her her walking papers.

    Keep shorting it. It looks like Mayer isn't interested in buying this ship.

    A change in management is not going to help a company which is a decade behind its competitors. AOL will never have YHOO's presence. Likewise, as far as "original content" - sorry, NFLX seems to have taken that lead so far forward that even Jeff Bezos is giving up on keeping up with that concept. Ad revenues, er um, anyone ever heard of a little company called Google which has a nice world wide footprint these days.... and blah blah blah blah blah. AOL is mired in a game of "catch up" and won't accept that. AOL doesn't need to die, it just needs to understand that it will always be a guppy in the pond it swims in and adjust it's corporate structure and expenses accordingly or go the way of many of its late 1990's buddies.

    Sentiment: Sell
