rules bar that imo and it would be complete peanuts in any event why bother lol. also you dont give any effect ot the time value of money etc. which is odd. also you forget to divide volume on yahoo by 2 to get actual number. much of volume is just marketmakerts to eachother themselves. all in my opinion only do your own DD. much of this is well known and found on the 'interwebbs' so I will leave you to your research. glad I could help tho.
No they are not. what you see is tiny tiny float trading hands. Dont you see the volume each day on yahoo!?? It lets u see there is no decent volume of shares to buy. that's cuz at least 93% of the share are obviously going to wait for th e$54/ share. glad I could help you understand this. imo only
from yahoo: % of Shares Held by Institutional & Mutual Fund Owners: 93%
Does that help answer your question?
Altera's board of directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share, to be paid on September 1, 2015 to shareholders of record on August 10, 2015.
So figure what an ex-div date three days prior I guess. Not bad to get paid while you wait. I think it is fair to assume 0.18 a qtr. till deal closes. all in my opinion only I have no special knowledge and no expert knowledge! do your own due diligence.

And we're off... Do your own due diligence and give it a read. Here's is just a snippet:

However, the exact timing of completion of the merger cannot be predicted ... blah blah blah read it all on altera site link to filings folks.

tjhis idiot kev is a dummy and a racist he said exact same thing when LO got bought out but there was a tiny dip along the way like here. he is stupid and a racist. put him on ignore unless u like kids who live with their parents and say real stupid racist things ... you know like kids in HS do when they are young dumb and full of hate a jealousy. LOL
ON IGNORE youngster u are a waste of adults' time!!
That's terrific news and you got it before INTC announces next week. Are you on the board or just really well connected heh. In all seriousness sure seesm like an oddball blog made some waves I am assumign limited trading due to everyone bascailly hedged/arb'd make these kinds of games doable. nonetheless there outta be a law...
Looks like INTC announces next wed so of course someone will ask for status update.
also consider that if there were solid evidence then folks involved with INTC which is VERY liquid always and has MANY many ears to the ground for news - prehaps in the top 5 of liquid and new hounds everywhere for evey scrap of news- so consider that on a day liek today for altr, INTC actually went DOWN by abt. 2% when if any deal bustign news had legs one woudl think itnc woudl go UP since many in the nal-ysts world think intc overpaying. just saying. another data point ot consider.
zen_z what you are sayign has much sense to it but keep in mind im not so sure you can still call thi s'highly liquid' i mean consider that mosteery long or arb is already positioned. consequently some BS bstroy if a negative story coudl in fact jolt the stock down a bit liek today if anough folsk bail out just in case its true. sure there was a big buy at one point prob an arb desk willign to take on more but mom and pop aint steppign in etc. like it woudl be 'normally.' just saying food for thought. it is extremly hard for me to belive *any* news on this woud be out this early and leaked. so perhaps above has more to do with it. just guessing and only in my opinion i have no specail insight into the inner working that fer fargin sure! lol
arent these kind og games how people end up in the pookey??? im mean you have got to be kidding me. HUGE BUY spike voume just now for thsoe with level 2.
Other than having it excatly backwards terrific thought...
I mean I think its backwards tho disclaiimer i really dont speak 'crazy' all that well.
This is awkwardly phrased. Why not just say the put writer immed collects the prememium for selling this put (much of it time value). This is always the case. the only 'twist' here is when deal closes ALL altr options beyond the close date accelerate to deal close. But market already knows that the price collected for options dated beyond the expected deal date already factor in the probabilty of close and closing date. So it's no real boon as speculated.
UH OHH yet ANOTHER RED DAY????
kev hows buyin at the top workign out for you!??
os hey dummy kev I still have u the racist on ignore stoooopid recist still post balnks to me what a mooooroooN!
