Gartner share price

Following META's acquisition, the Gartner share price has plunged under $10. Not surprising to our readers, we already stated the assimilation does make little sense financially.

Certainly, it must annoy the Borg?

There are two options here: either increasing their prices (see previous post on "Revealed: why Gartner took over META!!!") by running a "protection racket" (quoting James in his famous -but yes, too long, we agree Gary- post "Things To Do in the Analyst Business When You Are Dead") or selling the company. Someone has some interesting views on the question, that include Gene Hall's options price and META being a precedent to set a premium...

(thanks to F for pointing this out).
