The stock is just a dime away from it's 52-week high, which assures that whoever buys the company will pay a premium. The market cap of AWE currently sits at $27.35 billion. Cingular is still seen as the leader, with an all-cash offer of $31.9 billion. Some think there will be a bid war between Cingular and Vodafone. DoCoMo is said to be out of the game.
