06:37 EDTMHFIInvestors feel burn of big M&A deals, WSJ reports
Some investors are getting burned by large acquisitions, the Wall Street Journal reports. The rise in stock prices as a result of the M&A boom over the past few years have had the twin effect of emboldening other buyers and increasing the value of shares that are often used as currency, the report says. Since July 1, buyers' share prices fell about 0.6% on average on the first day of trading following the announcement of an M&A deal over $1B, the report says, citing data provider Dealogic. For example, Energy Transfer Equity's (ETE) stock dropped nearly 13% after news of its $32.6B proposal to take over Williams Companies (WMB), with Centene (CNC), McGraw Hill Financial (MHFI), and Dialog all also falling after M&A news, the report says.
