    Heard any good ones?

    Someone at work told me that there is a big acquisition announcement coming the week before the IPO. It's an Internet related company to add to the Internet presence of UPS.

    Expect something big

    What is the latest rumor on the MIP valuation and IPO date and price?

    The figure I heard was 2.47. It was also said to have been 3.7 before the IRS ruling.

    Then someone else said that the IRS ruling had no effect on MIP. 3.7 sounds good to me.

    LOL, that sounds like the exact description for the little buggers. They're the nasty little creatures that ate all the posts on the previous board.

    There is an operation in Asia that has been of interest to UPS. I haven't heard anything from inside UPS but I know that someone had talked with their management a year or so ago. They have existing air access to the area and would give us a great advantage in the Asian Pacific. The purchase of such a company would be pretty complicated and have lots of strings attached. It would be a tough deal to put together but we could form an alliance of some kind.

    I've heard the 2.93 from several sources. I hope it's correct.

    I posted the last message at 5:30 central time. The post states 4:30. What's the problem.

    You must be kidding if you think this guy has any other motive than to get back at the company that fired him.

    I'm from the East coast with roots in Metro NY. I hear from reliable sources that the IPO will be on the 10th and the MIP will be 2.93. I also would easily take the 3.7 and run!!!!!

    If I hear anything I'll let you know. The guy that told me did not tell me that. We will all know soon enough.
