Takeover deals can be a signal of positive market sentiment, indicating that the acquiring company is confident in its growth prospects and is willing to invest in expanding its market share. Such deals often lead to an increase in stock prices as they indicate potential value creation and synergies for the acquiring company. Takeover deals may provide an opportunity for investors to capitalize on market inefficiencies and earn profits through arbitrage strategies, such as buying the target company’s stock at a discount to the offer price and profiting from the price convergence upon deal completion.
