    RBY has the greater upside potential.

    I don't like the deal. It cuts into Rubicon's top line. This is the second deal Rubicon has made. They previously did a deal with Franco Nevada which also cuts into their top line. The salaries are secure for top management but the stockholders get the shaft! Too bad!
