Market Snapshot: Merger Mania Continues

by Caldwell Trust

Tim_market_snapshotIn a deal that would create the world’s fifth largest food company, Kraft Foods and Heinz will merge with the backing from its owners 3G Capital  and Uncle Warren’s Berkshire Hathaway. The price represents a healthy 27% premium to Tuesday’s close.  This transaction is a positive sign.  We will be voting for it on behalf of clients.  To us at Caldwell Trust, this signifies that the animal spirts are alive and well in the global economy, with plenty of cash on company's balance sheets earning paltry returns, the hunt for value and returns above cash rates continues.
