Yeah maybe.  Thanks.

Seems an odd reaction. I mean they didnít restore 1m homes overnight. But anyway, thatís the market!

Of course whatís most important is thaf  the homes are being restored with power out there! Canít imagine the suffering.

I don't understand why the US seems to have forgotten about Puerto Rico...

Although PR is part of the US, it's over 1000 miles away from Florida and isn't a state. Nearly half of all Americans aren't aware that Puerto Ricans are US citizens. Similarly, Puerto Ricans look different and speak a different first language than do most Americans who live in the lower 48. See the Jones Act as an example of the US government being generally indifferent to the interests of PR.

I know all that. Still doesn't seem like a good reason. But then, the same thing happened with New Orleans..

Do Puerto Rican's have a vote or elected representative for them in the US Congress? Does their vote matter in the Presidential elections? I suspect not, but then why not?
You can't connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.

The short answer is that residents of PR are nearly completely disenfranchised at the federal level.

New acquisition:

Is it a good time to do another acquisition? Not sure they have digested the last acquisition.

The 6.3x EBITDA price paid after synergies scares me. I would like to know what they paid before synergies. The fact that they donít, tells me that it is probably too much.
