nitaisamurai; I feel your pain because it's mine also, but the choice is simply between Neumeyer and Cope, and the result is no contest. After the takeover we will remain invested in LP. No one can doubt that Neumeyer will create far more shareholder wealth from LP than Cope ever could. The worst outcome would be for Cope to continue owning LP, so beware of what you hope for. Cope's mind is set on making the most money he can from Orex which he is already, I'm told, messing about with. Cope makes money by finding good deposits and selling them on after creating dilution. OK has more shares outstanding than FR! Neumeyer doesn't play that game.
