08:18 EDTPCLNZillow, Trulia merger story viewed as credible at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank views Bloomberg's report of merger talks between Zillow (Z) and Trulia (TRLA) as credible, saying the deal would make a lot of sense. The firm says Trulia shares would be worth around $63 in a takeover when using Priceline's (PCLN) acquisition of OpenTable as a comparison. Even at that price, the firm sees nearly 20% upside for Zillow's enterprise value should an acquisition occur. Deutsche notes that neither company has denied yesterday's report, nor has either company announced an earnings date. It cautions, though, that the potential merger could easily fall apart as well. It has a Buy rating on Trulia and Hold rating on Zillow.

Blackstone (BX), KKR (KKR) and TPG Capital are in discussions to settle a U.S. case accusing the firms of conspiring not to outbid one another and other buyout companies on takeovers of firms, according to Reuters, citing two people familiar with the matter.
