I put in a short position for the Dow Jones company, I figure that the reward/risk ratio is huge since DJ won't be going up too much more, and the downside potential of the stock returning to it's previous levels is extremely attractive for shorting. It doesn't look like the Bankroff family has any intention of selling DJ to Rupert Murdoch, and I don't believe anyone else will be making an offer anywhere close to his $60/share unsolicited. Another interesting spin that I've read on the matter, is that this offer by Rupert Murdoch was a publicity stunt for himself and the Fox corporation, to garner major buzz for the new Fox Business Channel which is set to compete with CNBC. He may have known the whole time that this offer would be rejected by the controlling family. Any opinions on this situation and the trading opportunities involved?
