Exactly, WFT is what's going on with our stock price. WFT went bankrupt yesterday. Smart money is pulling away from poorly run companies with dreams of conquering the world and empty pockets.
The upside in M&A tends to be measured over a number of years. Conversely, the downside is almost immediate cataclysmic disaster. Don't know the firm they used for advice. But you never hire a brain surgeon with a big mortgage who works on... — read more
