Very sleepy board here. Not even a buyout offer generates any chatter. Granted, this doesn't sound like a legitimate offer yet.
XRX rumor sounds like a pipe dream. Where is the financing? What is the valuation price? Show us the money. They're going to need a ton of cash because equity won't cut it. That means a huge debt pile for the combined company.
The HPQ daily chart is displaying the market's skepticism of the proposed "deal". Big black candle.
Yawn. OK, go back to sleep.
