In case anyone needs a reminder that food is not the only thing perishable… just take a look at the news that Acer will be acquiring Gateway:
Gateway shares peaked at $84 in November 1999 and then began a more than seven-year slide in value. Earlier this month, the stock bottomed out at $1.13 a share. Gateway shares jumped 50% on the takeover news Monday, closing at $1.82.
Fruit must be eaten while ripe.
