Why Shares of Home Loan Servicing Solutions Gapped Up

Here’s %category%-related post from
cash loan – Yahoo News Search Results:

Although we don’t believe in timing the market or
panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on
big changes — just in case they’re material to our investing


: Shares of
Home Loan Servicing Solutions

rose as much as 11% after the company announced that it has
agreed to be acquired

New Residential Investment

for $18.25 per share in an all-cash deal that values the
company at $1.3 billion.

So what

: The acquisition price represents a meager 9% premium over
Friday’s closing price and is 28% below the stock’s July 2013

Servicing Solutions, I wouldn’t recommend buying them now —
merger arbitrage (i.e., betting on the completion of announced
transactions) is not an arena for individual investors. For
existing shareholders, it might be worth hanging on to the
shares for a couple weeks to see if a raised offer or new
bidder emerges. Beyond that, it’s probably time to sell and
move on the next opportunity. New Residential’s acquisition of
Home Loan Servicing Solutions is expected to close in the
second quarter.
