    My guess is that they leaked this news, and are currently shorting the stock. Then later today, or Monday, they'll announce either that they were never in talks, or that talks have ended with no agreement, sending the stock price plummeting, and they rake in the cash.

    Oh my god, Oh my god, I just made 115%!!!


    Ok so I am kidding.


    So what? If you are gambler, great, you made 115%.
    If are not a complete idiot and put a few dollars in and not your whole portfolio, you maybe made a few dollars and call it a day.


    If you are anything else, hey great. So instead of being down 99.9% in CIT you are now down 98.9%.


    Give yourself a huge pat on the back as to how great an investor you are then.

    I can't help but wonder if it's a DIP package that's being negotiated.
