    It also a sign that we have been in a secular bear market since 2000 and as a result interest in stock has dissipated.

    Wrong, wrong wrong. If a company can go out and raise capital at such piddlingly low interest rates, why even bother going public to do a raise?

    The aggregate demand isn’t there anyway, and besides, staying private enables you to run your business your way without Icahns and Ackmans dictating terms to you in the press.

    There are a lot of companies out there that NEVER should have gone public in the first place.
