It didn’t take long to prove persistence pays! One busy Memorial Day weekend had Charter getting to be a close No. 2. Charter will add both Bright House and Time Warner Cable jumping it into the big(ger) time with about 24 million customers … less than 3 million behind Comcast (for now). Two years ago, Charter bid for TWC when it was at $120/share. Take that 20 and add it to today’s about $170 and get $100 cash (a lot coming from Liberty Broadband’s $4.3B latest investment) plus so many Charter shares at $176.96) and get a bid and win at $195.71/share.
