Everybody’s Going Gaga Over Latest M&A Stats
Okay, so October has been a bumper month for M&A. But it’s got a lot of news sites and blogs very excited indeed. Yahoo has a post today on Why so many companies are flocking to M&A deals. ZeroHedge screams that there’s been Over Half A Trillion In M&A with its headline about October’s $500 billion smashing all records.

Only CNBC manages to find some negatives in the stats claiming that this doesn’t bode well for November.
