Re: Form 4s filed yesterday....
jcharles must have read Charlie Munger's speech years ago about "incentive based biases" and that "self interest" knows no boundaries. Stock Brokers, Real estate brokers, Doctors, Attorneys, and Telecom Executives too are interested in their own self interest. Imagine that! What a concept! It might be easier to say all of humanity or at least the mass majority are biased by their own self interest. Benevolence is secondary, after self interest is secured!
Personally, at this juncture, if able to separate the legacy business from the local offices, there may be a transaction. Without the ability to separate, I think a transaction is unlikely.
With the investment put into local offices, I think they are clearly part of lumn strategy, going forward.
