    • pundr: very nice. hope the stock goes up very nice. interesting to see how much $BX is bidding. Chris what do you expect? i would say 15,5$-16,5$
      3/23/13
    • Chris DeMuth Jr.: $14
      3/23/13
    • pundr: only 14$? but when the only put 14$ on the table, icahn comes and make 16$ and m. dell and bx have a problem

    • Chris DeMuth Jr.: We'll see how it goes. Ultimately, it will probably get up somewhere between $15-20 http://seekingalpha.com/a/riuv

    • Schwarzenblitz: Pretty disappointing...I was hoping for atleast $16. I hope a bidding war takes it to 16-17

    • Chris DeMuth Jr.: Here is hoping. I think that would be a decent conclusion.

    • Schwarzenblitz: hey Chris, why is Blackstone bidding so low ? Anything less than 15 is likely to be easily topped by Icahn or even Dell himself.

    • Chris DeMuth Jr.: $BX is bidding low because they are paying as little as possible to stay in the process. It is exactly what I would've done. Good tactics.

    • SA_Member_8998191: I've got faith the negotiations will end near the 17 marker

    • Moses3rdeye: Downside risk if this thing blows up is too high and upside potential at $15 current best offer isn't worth it.
