Office supply chains Office Depot (ODP) and OfficeMax (OMX) are racing higher in premarket trading, up 7.1% and 6.9% respectively, after both companies managed to control costs enough to beat estimates in Q3. The underlying current that a OMX-ODP merger makes sense is still in play despite the efforts of OfficeMax to erect a takeover defense. Staples (SPLS) isn't missing out on the fun altogether, adding 2.2% premarket after landing what could end up becoming an interesting deal with Amazon.

    Staples move with Amazon is innovative and similar two great companies, Apple and Amazon, who compete and cooperate--Apple features Kindle and their titles on their devices and Amazon's audible division runs the iTunes audiobook store.
