The Corporate Merger

As both Wall Street speculators and spectators well know, the profits to be made by astute investors in corporate takeovers are immense. For the unwary investor, however, the risks can be just as great. Now Wall Street expert and best-selling author Jerry Tuccille tells you everything you need to know to maximize your chances for success and minimize your risks when playing the takeover game. He maps out strategies that will give your money the most profit-making power possible, although he does not purport to provide you with a guaranteed system for making a fortune by speculating on merger candidates. Based on his guidance, with a degree of caution and common sense you can learn how to spot merger situations without "inside information."

From the back cover blurb:

... With a degree of caution and common sense you can learn how to use puts and calls, profit targets and stop-losses, and all the other devices the pros use to make their killings while protecting themselves from killing losses.
