Mosaic's board rebuffs takeover bid/talks!????
And of course, none of this is mentioned to shareholders!!
Even though this name has been touted as a takeout candidate more than a few times the last couple months!!!
Here is the board of directors of Mosaic. Where is their duty to shareholders???
Apparently this is what they think their duty is--they now say fertilizer demand will go through the roof, so then, in retrospect, they can talk about how ignoring and not disclosing takeover talks were in the best interests of shareholders!!
