        RCP and Cole managements discuss merger

        "This is taking the number two and number three net-lease REITs and creating kind of a game-over, category-killer in the sector," says Cole Real Estate (COLE +8.7%) CEO Marc Nemer of the deal to sell itself to American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP -1.5%) for $11.2B in cash and stock. The combined company will push into first place in size in the popular triple-net-lease sector, surpassing Realty Income (O +0.7%).

        ARCP's acquisition-happy chief Nicholas Schorsch in the past has typically raised private money for non-traded REITs and then sold the portfolios to ARCP in order to cash out his investors, but this is a massive public deal. "How many REITs have the ability to raise both public and private capital," he says. "The ability for us to acquire non-traded REITs, either whole or in part, is only increased" by this Cole deal.

        S&P 500 inclusion next? The investor presentation (slide 8) notes the combined company's market cap will be larger than index constituents Kimco Realty and Macerich.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
