The reality is that this isn’t the first rumor and won’t be the last with regard to a potential takeover of a stock. In fact, rumors are the most common form of market manipulation today. In this particular, case, because the rumor is overwhelmingly vague and we cannot track down a source, we don’t believe that a takeover is actually going to take place. So, if you plan on trading based on this rumor, please be sure to do so with caution.
