If you listened to Domo, Mako et al. The stock had no value. Incompetent morons. If the offer would have been less then the current price, you could argue they're right - but a 79% premium to current market is about $379m above zero - hope no one shorted on their recommendation. Mako was short though - Oops. Also said a buyout would never happen along with other BS. And now watch the loser try and cover his tracks. Horrible call for anyone who was stupid enough to listen.

“I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” Obama responded. “What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave, but you don’t see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
Didn't they likely take down a commercial airliner a few weeks ago? Attack in Lebenon this past week?
Had the chance to hit them early and failed leadership has given us Paris 2015. Nice elk.
Key difference is that the initial offer was unsolicited and rejected by OSI. They ultimately agreed to terms and announced a merger. Here we have OCAT mgmt agreeing to the terms.
I agree that on paper it looks strong and comprehensive - but here, as usual, is a little bit of the real world. Excerpt from a Washington Times article - turn back on meta data.
They’re basically lying to you saying, ‘oh we’ve got this vetting process to make sure that they’re safe.’ But you had the FBI director testify before Congress, under oath saying that if they have no information on someone they have nothing to vet them against,” Mr. Farenthold said on the “Capitol Hill Show” with Tim Constantine.
“We have testimony saying, and I think common sense also dictates that in a failed state like Syria you don’t have any government information, police reports to rely on to vet somebody,” the congressman added. “So there’s no way to do a background check from somebody coming out of Syria. There’s no way we can find out whether they’re safe or not.”
Likewise, the bureau is frustrated that the White House and Justice Department have not pressured Congress to act more quickly to force technology companies to help break the encrypted communications of suspects, fearing political appointees have been too deferential to a politically connected, well-monied industry.
“We have suspects we’ve been tracking that have gone dark, because we can no longer follow their encrypted activities. Physical surveillance can only take us so far and the urgency to solve that gap in the political realm isn’t there,” one official said, speaking only on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak to the media.
Even when the SOFA was signed in 08 it was generally understood that some residual US force would remain after the official withdrawal of combat troops. Obama made some effort at just that. The difference is simply a matter of resolve - Obama didn't have much, so when the Iraqi's pushed back, Obama was more than happy to walk away. That is where Obama laid the seed for ISIS. He let that seed spread by underestimating ISIS and by his inept handling of Syria and now Libya. Great irony is that his failure is coming full circle as he is now returning forces to the region that is clearly in worse shape then when he took office.
Yeah, dipchit. You really have us all convinced that you totally understand markets - but you blew this call as well didn't ya. Freak.
Only thing you need to know is that Mako said the stock was worth zero - only off by about $370,000,000.
Flop, make the idea unappealing? Their 'idea' is a Caliphate. Please tell us how to make that unappealing? They are not losing, they are adapting. They JUST took down a commercial jetliner by all indications.
Man are you dense. This ISNT about refugees. This is about that incredible vetting process you've yet to outline. .
Yup elk, it was utopia before those three came along. Certainly no blame for Huessein in running a terror regime for years - I'll bet they loved being gassed by their own government. No blame for Obama, I mean once iraq was relatively stable it made sense to take ALL of our troops out. Assad was just as revered in Syria, I'm mean he's only killed about 1/4 of a million people. Obama again, who could have ever predicted that a JV team could move up to varsity so quickly and once Putin bailed him out of that red-line snafu, shouldn't Putin have taken over? And this Sunni/Shia thingy is brand new isn't it? Crazy this caliphate.
Plenty of Dems are getting it. Listen to the question from Geroge S that resulted in the 'contained' answer by Obama. It was more of a statement than a question.
Who creates jobs you Libroid idiots! Corporations! There are plenty of ideas such a vocational training and eliminating unnecessary regulation so businesses will invest in new projects and hire workers.
How does simply raising the minimum wage create jobs?
What's the matter with freezing the budget in certain discretionary programs? Why should the budget go up automatically every year? Zero based budgeting makes sense.
I've always suggested eliminating corporate income tax entirely. It's just becomes a cost of production that gets paid for by consumers. Better to replace with a VAT.
You guys can fecking hear or are just plain stupid. The objective isn't to block refugees, but to ensure that we can properly vet them - which means being able to actually do all those things on that plan elk. And before you say something else stupid, this isn't the only thing that needs to be done to ensure that terrorists don't enter the country. One of many.
'RIGHT-WINGERS DON'T GET THAT THE PARIS TERRORISTS WANT TO PROVOKE FRANCE INTO WAR'
There you go again. Sure, ISIS decided to provoke both Russia and France in a matter of weeks into a war. I'd laugh less if the Libroid position were that the aim of these terror attacks were to cause either country to retract from their efforts in Syria and Iraq.
Why is so hard for you to ignor reality that is in front of your nose? ISIS HAS taken over sizeable areas in both Syria and Iraq and there is nothing to suggest that they are satisfied. They've also obviously expanded their efforts outside of that area.
This enemy can't be contained and must be defeated on the battlefield, even though there will remain a number of unresolved issues in those countries.
The Syrian civil war has been going on for 5 years. BC have nothing to do with this. Most of the refugees are fleeing Assad who murdered hundreds of thousands of his own citizens. If Obama had a coherent policy in Syria this crisis would not exist. Instead he ignored it and then called for Assad's removal with no thought on how to make that happen. He next drew a line in the sand around chemical weapons - crossed multiple times and no consequences. Instead Vlad comes to save Obama's tail - how feckless. Problem was then compounded by the emergence of ISIS and Obama's underestimation of that organization. This crisis is 100% owned by Obama.
The Iraq war has many tragic consequences - top on that list must be all the American lives lost in securing a relative peace only to hand the country over to ideologue mass murders.
