I noticed that mostly when the company is being bought out and the deal makers are figuring out their offer to shareholders they use average price of the stock before the jump caused by the news, so I would consider selling your shares while the price is high if it's not too late. If you prefer to hold on to them you will be offered new stocks, the money or a combination of both.
