I haven't taken a chance on this hi-tech, hi-risk, game-changing - but still unprofitable - company, just to see it bought out between $10 and $15 or something.

Anyone else have an opinion?


Insiders own 27.1% of the company. Institutions own 43.8%. So, the simple answer to your question, for me, is a company opposed buyout would probably not get any insider shares and not enough institutions own the stock to make a buyout probable.

The problem you mentioned is real. It would be interesting to know why the pill was dropped.

W.D.
