There is no plan b nor anyone to create one. So it is the merger deal or the one trick pony. Have you seen the condom? Taint user friendly.
You are so right. The deal is dead. OB bought 10000 shares today and we all know he is a masochist.
In my case, I have a ton too. Am way past the retirement age but still work because I choose to and I have a "zoo" to feed. The bright side is that I have an incentive to live though the alternative will be better.
You make your bet and take your chances. My bet is clny mgt is superior to Hammo and ilk and is more likely to perform mucho better.
