"Any time you make a bet with the best of it, where the odds are in your favor, you have earned something on that bet, whether you actually win or lose the bet. By the same token, when you make a bet with the worst of it, where the odds are not in your favor, you have lost something, whether you actually win or lose the bet." -David Sklansky, "The Theory of Poker"
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.
