Bank Of America Buys Merrill Lynch for 44 Billion Dollar

I kknow what comes into everyone’s mind , is it Merrill lynch or Lehman brothers that should a loss like previous week , i was also expecting Lehman brothers to be bought by some one not Merrill Lynch.Merrill Lynch, one of the third-biggest U.S. securities firm by market value has agreed already to get sold to Bank of America after they had a meeting over weekend at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York , they might have come to this decision after they saw the fate of there smaller rival firm Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.They have finalized the deal at 44 billion dollars.
Payment will be in Bank of America stock, and its expected at $29-a-share purchase price if you see that the 29$ is below 70 percent price of stock’s January 2006 record, but its 70 percent more than the closing price of $17.05 on Sept. 12. Im thinking may be they should have waited till the result see the huge loss it might show like Lehman brothers and then get the company under 10 dollars or so .
