Barnes & Noble shares surge over buyout speculation - New York Post

Today, Panzer was enjoying a nice quiet trip in the Catosphere. Suddenly, the Panzermobile was shaken from windshield to rocket motors by cheering and clapping. Following the storm of noise took our kitty pilot to the New York Post site. There he discovered a post about Barnes and Noble.

According to the post by Carleton English, speculation about a possible buyout caused Barnes and Noble stock to rise to $7.75 a share. From a buyout by Amazon to one by an anonymous buyer, rumors about Barnes and Noble's sale have run rampant lately. This newest rumor has Barnes and Noble buying back all the shareholders' stock and going private. The company denies the rumor.

We'll only have cat books in my store.
Panzer says, "Hmm ... Let's see ... $7.75 for a share of Barnes and Noble stock. That's not much. Maybe, I can get Mom to buy a share for me. Then I could be part-owner of a bookstore."

Note: This is a long-short post. Bring a cup of tea and half a muffin for today's reading selection.
