Investors and some big shareholders hated on Freeport McMoRan's (FCX -16%) blockbuster deal, but FCX is looking 10-20 years down the road. Copper miners have found it more difficult to find new projects in politically stable areas, and there are few deal targets: "These are depleting assets, and if you don't keep investing in new assets... you're going to have nothing left." Best to expand while you still can.

    Excellent point! "Expand while you still can"


    Or do like MSFT, INTL and forget the tablet, stay status quo and grow mold! Forget about creation and recreation.


    I am staying long FCX and looking forward to the rewards.

    Randy, good point. MSFT is sucking hind-tit now in an attempt to play catch-up.

    It's about the board looting cash-rich FCX to retake and prop up their OTHER holdings who're in debt and floundering.
