CNS Shareholders Can Breathe Easy
By Nathan Parmelee (TMF Doraemon)

Normally there is a bit of remorse when a small, growing company is acquired by a much larger one. Even though shareholders might receive a premium of 20% right away, that doesn't generally outweigh the long-term potential for growth that many companies have.

However, when it comes to today's announcement that Hidden Gems selection CNS (Nasdaq: CNXS) will be acquired by GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK), I think CNS shareholders should be very happy with the $37.50 a share in cash being offered. How happy? Well, if any of you CNS shareholders know a GlaxoSmithKline shareholder, I recommend giving them a big hug and a kiss........
