Hi Jim-
Let's use the baseball swing for the fences; strike out a few, hit some singles and doubles, a triple once in a while, and the occasional homerun.

I guess that would make PWER a walk for the MUE? Your outstanding discipline at the plate has saved you. I hope your minions are paying attention to that...average cost of $6.19.

As with ZIP and others, the mergers and acquisitions that us little people dream of too often serve to lock in losses. Kinda stinks and a good lesson reiterated. This acquisition is going to be great for ABB, stupendous for PWER insiders, and something between "meh" and "ouch again!" for the people who supposedly own the company.

End of rant, but keep swingin', Jim!
