BKS Barnes & Noble - a takeover in the works ?



January 01, 2010 – Comments (2)

I was kidding about Amazon buying it, but could this be bought out? This looks like a trade for 2010. Any comments? Late day volume spikes. Burkle purchasing 4.5 million shares in October. I green thumbed it in Caps the other day but have not purchased any shares. Buy-out or not, it seems like 25 quick Caps points over maybe a three month period. Am I dumb? LOL

I'm thinking something is up here. There was 400k traded in the last 5 minutes of the year. Price spiked up from 18.68 to 19.07 while the broader markets were taking a dive..

Unless this holiday season's numbers come in better than I think it may be hard to maintain the dividend which has made this stock attractive. There have been rumblings from Burkle about management issues. Here is a chart:
