There is also the time value of money and "opportunity costs" to consider. The extra $3 profit on the deal ( selling at $77 now versus waiting on $80 ) say, 9 months from now, equals an annualized return of about 5.2% ( putting aside issues such as what if the deal doesn't go through; whether or not selling now would trigger a short-term capital gain versus a long-term one, etc. ).Don't forget.... You'll still be getting the dividend on those shares until it actually goes private. That'll up your return a bit.
