    Usually it doesn't work this way: VF Corp. (VFC +10.8%) soars after its $2B deal for Timberland (TBL +42.9%). The M&A rule of thumb - the stock price of the buyer gets pounded over worries that the price paid is too high - has come undone lately because Wall Street is welcoming industry consolidation on hold since the crisis. Footwear peers: SHOO +1.9%, DECK +1.7%. SKX +0.6%.
