TechCrunch walks back Rackspace going-private story

"We've tried to make clear that we're reporting an unconfirmed source here, but an interesting angle nonetheless," says TechCrunch, updating this morning's story suggesting Rackspace (RAX +6.4%) is in talks with a P-E firm about taking itself private.

Far more skeptical, Dealreporter says it received a note with similar wording to that of the TechCrunch story, but didn't believe the source.

Though off the highs a bit, Rackspace nevertheless continues to post a sharp gain on the session.

    This stock performs like a drunk in a barroom dart game. Better duck. Too bad, it's a great company.
