    do you think the gov`t would let coke buy pepsi ??

    the analogy is clear. Nasdaq bid would never clear regulators, so, it`s all just noise.

    • I agree with your thinking ..BUT..its been my experience that these companies usually check that out beforehand. You see where they are talking about flipping the derivatives already. They can sometimes get a sense beforehand about which units they may have to divest themselves of in order to pass anti trust scrutiny and therefore line up buyers beforehand. That being said , you can never be sure. However, I think that there has been a lot more informal contact between the companies and regulators than we are aware of. Add in the NYSE icon NOT going to a foreign entity and it could smooth things over.IMO
