A couple of things. I'm not so sure that the cable industry has been making big money over the past 20 years as you imply. Your claim on margins is absurd.

Not going to argue with because this is off topic. Let's just say that I don't think the merger makes any real difference.

I assume the headline writer meant hyperbolic rather than parabolic which is a curve that goes up, peaks and then drops back down. But then again, the stock price may eventually go parabolic.
