look at what happen to Merrill Lynch and such when they got "bought out" in the crisis....shareholders got whacked. hard if i recall.
I tried to bottom fish Bear Sterns, Goldman, GE, and a few others. Goldman and GE worked out for me ...Bears and LEH most certainly didnt...basically got zero and close to zero ($3 a share for one i believe was the final settlement ).
point being .,..buyout in a crisis doesnt nec mean the shareholders do well.....even if the company itself doesnt go BK.
