Two big deals this morning reflect a recent changing trend and a very bullish sign for stocks. Disney announced a $4B cash and stock deal to purchase Marvel this morning and Baker Hughes announced a $5.5B cash and stock deal to purchase BJ Services. There is no doubt that the credit markets have vastly improved over the recent months. This could be the ultimate positive sign for the credit markets – merger Monday is making a comeback.
