looks like BKS is going to buy up enough outstanding shares to take it private.

Some speculation that the offer may have to be raised likely has bumped it up to about $2.75.

Bottom line, at this level, I have made money. I keep hearing the old adage "sell the news" running through my head. Is there more upside? Sure, there could be. Is it more limited than before this announcement? I think so. So, I am bailing.

It has been fun. Sad that the board dried up. But there were some good conversations. Hope that everyone else has done well with their trades, and best of luck on the future trades.
