Karen Finerman feels differently. She says not all deals are the same. The most important aspect of any merger agreement, she says, are the terms which can allow a buyer out of a deal. Although the Harman deal fell apart others are more airtight.
Consequently she says the trade is Genesco (GCO) because she doesn’t feel lawyers can get out of this M&A deal. (Finish Line is buying Genesco)
Pete Najarian likes United Rentals (URI) for many of the same reasons. He too believes URI is in a deal that will go through.
