"Siebel shareholders will receive $10.66 per share in cash unless they elect to be given Oracle common stock -- but no more than 30 percent of Siebel's common shares will be exchanged for Oracle stock. The companies expect the deal to close early next year.

Maybe someone can answer my two biggest questions. Is Oracle stock a good prospect for major growth? And........ is that 30% the maximum for each person, or is that 30% for the entire deal. In other words, if alot of people took all cash could I get all ORCL stock for my 250 SEBL shares?

I figure I'm way in the hole at this point so if Oracle stock has good growth prospects the only chance I have to climb back out is by getting 100% ORCL stock and hope it goes up. What do you think?
