    Why is MMI trading at 38?

    Enough BS. There is concern that the deal will fail to be approved by antitrust authorities, or that such approval will take forever and a day. That's it.

    I don't share those fears, but I've been wrong before. If you have something intelligent to add, fine, but please stop blathering.

    (And google "merger arbitrage" if you want more info on that; there may even be a wikipedia entry that explains it, but the "rule of thumb" is 300 bps over 3 month money for "clean" deals (thats insurance against a MAC and the like); anything above that is insurance against specific risks related to the deal).

    Good luck, and have a nice weekend. If you are in the path of that 'cane, as I am, extra good luck.
