$29 a share for MER, a stock that you can buy right now on the open market for $17??? Uhh... There's *NO* way this can be true. Why in the world would BA pay almost DOUBLE what MER is currently trading at, and probably 4x what MER is actually worth?
The BA shareholders will REVOLT tomorrow! There's no way they'll let their nut-job leadership buy MER for $29/share, when you can go on the open market and buy it at $17/share. JEEZ, WAKE UP PEOPLE!
