they cant afford it? well yea, but many companies who buy out other companies cant afford them either. do you know how they "buy" them? either 1. issuing shares and/or 2. issuing debt. when T is/was on their buying spree, they bought them with debt and issuing shares. when sprint bought nextel, they bought them with shares and cash. when cingular bought out ATTWS, they made their parents borrow money to pay for them. there are others also in this industry and in others that are the same thing. they barely can pay by "cash" they always use debt, unless the transaction is small.
the point is; anything can happen and if they are already going to "buy" them for $50B might as well add on another $100B to buy the whole company.
