I got in at 47... figured if anything i'd make nothing... didn't expect this. I don't think anyone did
regarding the class action. good hope BOD are all fired
deal isn't going to happen anyway. I just picked a law firm (take your pick) and got in on the lawsuit frenzy. If the deal does go through we shouldn't make it easy for the sob's. I mean we hear they got an offer of 64... that information was leaked to us so I go and buy 1000 at 47 thinking, well, even if we don't get 64 now with the bottoming of oil, 47 is still relatively safe and I probably won't lose anything or not much. Am I crazy or didn't that 64 information come out about 2 weeks ago. maybe not for the first time but it was repeated over and over 2 weeks ago with no mention that the worth of the company had plummeted so much we'd get the equivalent of 43.50 and now have this happen.
I just posted a question about how much stock we get if ETE and WMB are both lower when deal closes? The whole thing is confusing
we'd still have to get enough stock to equal $43.50 or just 1.87 of the price of WMB at that time (whatever that might be)
what good is that? 20 days? With all the manipulation in the markets... my grandmother could get ETC to trade higher for 20 days. this deal isn't going to happen. Every law firm in existence is jumping all over this
read on line that dividend should be higher for wmb shareholders after all is said and done with new company etc. of course, this was the last line of a downgrade article LOL
well if they got one they might be willing to do just that. The ETE or whatever they are may come back and offer more, making the deal better and no break up fee
that sounds wrong. there is no way they can tax you on your shares of WMB essentially traded in for ETC during a merger. If you hold the new stock for a year it will be capital gains tax... long term too right?
there's no rationality in the markets anymore... if you are smart of cautious or thoughtful it doesn't mean a thing... it's a casino and WMB is like Friday night drunken college kids messing up the vibe at the tables... don't think too much about it. It's displeasure being voiced by selling and also just cut throat shorts who search for trouble and jump on. this deal is definitely trouble because it's not even going to go through which leads to uncertainty
Too much insanity pouring forth... my guess is, for good or bad, pressure will make it collapse. Can't believe they're wasting their time and our trying to push it through
I see it but I'm laughing because in this market it may be difficult for these pigs to make that 20 day deal happen. This market will rip ETC's throat out with its teeth and they won't be able to count on their sneaky termination
I don't have profits to kill but yeah I've bought 1000's at once... just felt like doing 50 for some reason. schwab is cheap
I hear ya. I had to sell mine today thanks to a margin call. the stock market is just no longer a place where money can be made. it's a casino where everybody loses. I held on to about 200 shares. B F'in deal
Ridiculous. #$%$ good are drugs if no one can afford them? Hillary is right on the money. Wall st. being rigged isn't her fault. The world can't be held hostage by big money and afraid to address issues... and the price of drugs is a hug issue for EVERYONE. Not just the few people who get rare diseases. I hears so many stupid things on these boards. It's sad.
no tax to pay there or am I missing something specific about this deal... or 'disaster' as it should, rightfully, be referred to as
