Earnings Season M&A

Discussion in 'Wall St. News' started by monstimal, Feb 6, 2013.

  1. I see MUSA and ICGE were bought this morning by RS and GOOG respectively. I can't find any stats on this but what are your opinions on this observation: There are many more M&A announcements during earnigns seasons.
    Do you agree with that? If that's true, is there a reason?
  2. 1) You generally expect to see "bigger" mergers when the broad market is in multi-year, high territory. :)
    2) The timing of the deals with respect to earnings season is random. Don't "read" anything into "it". :cool:
