  • Merger Arbitrage Forum (PART 2)

    I am starting a new blog for our Merger Arbitrage Forum since a few people contacted me saying that the page was starting to take a longtime to load.

    In four months this blog has gotten almost 500 comments. The quality of contributor has been quite high, with pertinent questions and interesting ideas.

    The blog has been among Seeking Alpha's top 10 blogs the whole time.

    I always say if you know where to look SA is truly a wealth of information.

  • Merger Arbitrage Forum (Though Any Arb Can Be Discussed)

    Over the last 20 years or so a small number of savvy individuals have shared ideas about merger arbitrage stocks on Yahoo Finance's message boards. I have been fortunate to be part of that group. Last week, the members of that informal group opened accounts here on SA. It is my goal to have all that merger arb talent post here in one place, sharing their years of experience and smarts with each other and the SA community.

    There is already one sharp arb that posts on SA from that group.

    I always say if you know where to look SA is truly a wealth of information.
