I heard the Bass Brothers in Texas was somehow involved in the Chase deal. No Disrespect, but what would CAT do to HPH share price if they did buy, not much book value. Just looking for your thought. My feeling is that if this hold works out, it will be a wait and see. UI bought at 1.18 so at this point I dont care about the current price. I am fishing for the home run comfort level.
Another thought, your idea makes real sence if CAT only buys the big machinery buz and spins off the paper making side. I live in Wisconsin, you can't imagine the rumors that hit the streets here. Different every day. I'm not an insider, but closer than the outsiders.
Back in the 80's, the Bass brothers rescued Mattel when the failure of Intellivision almost put Mattel under. If memory serves, Mattel's book value went to -$14 per share. I'm currently in HPH as a turnaround play.
