Confidence in M&A Growing
Despite a slow start to the year, M&A is currently picking up in part due to deals such as those of Kraft, Disney and Skype. Both consumer and investor confidence seems to be picking up as American stocks opened much higher this week than last. The increased consumer confidence is due in part to the realization that M&A is not dead and that companies are still trying to build and produce a greater profit unlike what it had earlier seemed when many companies were just trying to stay afloat. The seeming return of M&A is being looked at as a correction to the problems of the recession.
