The negative PR only reinforces my confidence in this stock. I have seen this game played before. "Worthless" is old news. A deal has been done and we are in the hands of the most competent group possible. If I had my choice, I would ask for Blackstone in particular to be involved. This is, in my own opinion, a great opportunity. Companies can be run into the ground by poor management and overall $#!&&% reasoning by the powers that be. Greed and ego are an S.O.B. as well. Blackstone, in my imagination, is a group of Kevin O'Learys from "Shark Tank" who love and know how to generate... money. Even if they aren't a bunch of loveable, bald scrooges, I am certainly comfortable allowing my investment to ride their coattails. I may not be the smartest guy, but I can see who is. I'll have what they're having. Cheers to Billabong, GSO-Blackstone, Altamont, fellow investors, and all parties involved! Here's to a bright future! Hip-Hip-Hooray! GLTA and of course, just my opinion. BLLAF FTW!
