When is it time to let a sleeping dog lie?

Billions for what are essentially two dying brands. With numerous attempts to revive the two brands having failed what make the latest purchaser think they will succeed?

It's kinda like that domain everyone will keep renewing, it never does anything but the next guy is always waiting in line to renew.
