  • M&A Activity Benefits Investors - 21 February 2013
  • A series of mergers and acquisitions in the past few months have been rewarding for investors fortunate enough to have had shares in the companies involved. Just last week, Berkshire Hathaway and 3G capital joined forces to buy HJ Heinz, resulting in Heinz shares rising by 20 percent to $72.50 per share, while shares of Warren Buffet's company rose by one percent. The acquisition of Heinz represents the largest deal of its kind in the food industry ever to have taken place.

  • Is the 'January Effect' Still Valid? - 7 February 2013
  • First observed by investment banker Sidney B. Wachtel in the early 1940s, the term the 'January Effect' is used to described a market anomaly where financial security prices experience an increase in the month of January. There are a number of reasons for the January Effect, with the most common theory being that individual investors holding small stocks may sell their stocks at year end, thereby allowing them to claim a capital loss for tax purposes, and then reinvest in the new year. Another reason suggested is that many investors who receive year-end bonuses in January use these bonuses to purchase stocks, pushing up stock prices.
