I don't see what advantage there would be in another company taking over HudBay. They are the ones with the knowledge of the area and a good production and exploration track record. In this case I think the company has done everything they can with their operations and the low stock price reflects the nonsense going on in the market and not the company. Nowadays it seems that the stock price of a company does not reflect its fundamental value in many many cases. The market seems to have turned into a big gambling casino.
I am hanging on to my stock in this one because it has huge upside and very low downside potential imo.
