With MGM Mirage stock a hair above $10 today, that puts it's current market cap at $2.79 billion.
Majority shareholder Kirk Kerkorian recently announced he was pulling out of Ford Motor Company, leaving him with some cash to burn (or bury in the backyard perhaps).
Long rumored, could Kirk be considering taking MGM private? Other deals of this type required private equity money and currently-scarce credit but given his resources, couldn't Kerkorian do this deal on his own if he was so inclined?
Clearly MGM Mirage is worth far more than $2.79 billion.
