Im thinking about it purely from a numbers aspect.

Pre offer, he is holding 20% of a failing retailer, with a market value of his stake about a billion. If he were to liquidate, he would get even less than that. At the 28 per share, he buys himself out for 1.8 billion and he has only committed to putting a billion back in.

So, he walks away with 800mm cash and a billion in equity should he be able to turn it around. He gets to shit can the people who forced him out as a little bonus as well ha.

So, I see that AAPL has decided to pull their "Genius" ads from the Olympics. The ones where there's an annoying kid telling you everything he can help you with regard AAPL products. I was talking to a co-worker just the other day about this, and how, at this tech message board he goes to the people there were up in arms about it. Calling it the dumbest thing ever and how this type of commercial would have never gotten green lit if Steve Jobs was still around. The slow decent continues.

Yeah, was banned in general for a week, looks like I'm perma-banned from CE, guess they have something personal against me there *shrug

Still holding ACTC???

re: AMRN....waiting for catalysts this month...hope NCE is granted, just because the market seems to be demanding it, but really, NCE doesn't mean much with the '889 and '146 patents, if granted, would give protection until 2030.

Sorry to hear about CE man I know it was a big part of your day. Yeah I'm still holding ACTC. In this market I'll make more money holding and waiting than I will trying to time a bunch of jumps. Not sure if you saw they've added glaucoma to their pipeline. It may take a bit longer than I originally anticipated, I'm not only hold, I added in the 7 cents range.

I know you're still with GLUU, you know ZNGA is going to about a buck then bounce back to maybe $3, but what a horrible stock. I knew it wouldn't last.

I bailed on GLUU (temporarily) right before the drop below 5, only to double up my AMRN position. When/if AMRN pops I plan to take profits and buy back more GLUU shares, so I'm actually hoping for a bit more weakness in that one.

Of course, knowing my luck, GLUU'll get bought before I'm able to buy back my shares heh.

No worries on CE, I'm sure they'll let me back in once they start missing my irreverent brand of humor.

I hope to hold it for multiple years and will likely add to it. That being said, I may dump equities as we approach the fiscal cliff. I think we will at least get close enough to the edge that it will spook markets, just like with the debt ceiling.

He wins due to his residing in the American Gardens Building.

I agree, once they pay a dividend we'll see a nice positive movement. Frankl I'm shocked by how much of a sell off this stock sees when the market turns down.

Any Interest in spin offs? Got the IPO of Pfizer's animal health company and Kraft is spinning off it's grocery division both happening pretty soon.

Yeah, those things were getting ridiculed pretty much everywhere.

I feel like number 1 reason those would never have happened with jobs is that they imply that you are going to need help doing something with your mac.

Jobs was super anal about making everything as intuitive and user-friendly as possible (like sticking to the 1-button mouse and 1-button iphone to force developers to make everything easy to find and not hide stuff in obscure menus). Old Apple would *never* suggest that you might need to ask for help in order to use one of their core iLife apps.

The geniuses are there as a bonus feature and are available to anyone who actually needs them (just like you could plug regular mouse and right-click would work just fine).

This is a possible reason for the strength yesterday....more buyout speculation. Honestly I'd rather it do nothing than jump (and then fall) on BS rumors and spec.

We have plenty of catalysts ahead, don't need to pump and rumormonger.

Granted, I don't think the NCE status *should* be a catalyst b/c of the 889 and 145 patents, but it will be I'm sure. We'll have news on that on or before 8/17
