Do what you think is best.

Fwiw, I generally sell shortly after a deal like this is announced. The way I look at it is the +36% gain you have right now is a sure thing, if you sell. Do I really want to risk that for just another 4% given that if something goes wrong I lose that 36% and maybe more?

Course, if someone else decides to pony up more than Duke, then you'd be out that fly-in-the-sky possibility too.

I like sure things.

Another way to think about it is, like Cramer says, "Bulls make money, bears make money, pigs get slaughtered."

Not that I'm a big fan of Cramer but there is some wisdom in the things he says sometimes.
