Jeff Yastine says that 2018 might be the year of acquisitions and mergers, and he pointed to a 2018 M&A survey that Deloitte put out recently. In the survey, 1,000 executives at larger corporations and private equity firms answered that they have extra cash reserves and that they plan to purchase acquisitions and mergers with it. Previously, corporations had indicated that they were looking to put their money into organic investments, but this has changed. Instead, many of them are now actively seeking merger and acquisition opportunities, and four out of ten executives stated that this was their top priority. They also indicated that their investment in this area will much larger than it has previously.
Jeff Yastine has come out and said that the best way to get on board with the trending switch to companies investing in mergers and acquisitions is to invest in individual stocks. He pointed out that companies like Nordstrom Inc., Biogen Inc., and Bristol-Meyers Squibb might potentially be bought out and that there is discussion that Akami Technologies Inc. might be bought out, as well. Yastine also suggested that individual investors consider investing in Exchange Trade Funds (ETFs), which he terms as all-or-nothing-bets. He pointed out the IQ Merger Arbitrage ETF as a good example, because its products are increasing in value and it has increased by 5% in the last year.
