How to Know Which Mergers Will Be Winners

Keith Fitz-Gerald Oct 19, 2018

Millions of investors find mergers to be complicated and murky undertakings, best left to Wall Street’s “Armani Army.”

I look at ’em differently and think you should, too.

That’s because mergers are one of the single greatest profit generators out there.

Today, we’re going to talk about why and how you could play along for big potential profits…

Why Free Cash Flow Is Your Key to Big Profits

Take the all-stock merger between Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) and L3 Technologies Inc. (NYSE: LLL) that was announced, for example.

The deal is a transaction between “equals” – meaning neither company is assuming a dominant position over the other. Instead, you’re getting a single, far larger, integrated defense contractor.

The new and aptly named “L3 Harris Technologies Inc.” will generate something on the order of $16 billion a year in sales that should translate into profits of around $2.5 billion, according to company representatives.

That’s good by any stretch of the imagination.

But I’m into GREAT.

That’s why I started Total Wealth Alert and why we’re in this together.

It’s a well-proven formula… line up with one or more of the Six Unstoppable Trends, identify the world’s best companies, then buy the ones making “must-have” products and services the world cannot live without.

That’s what this merger is.

The newly formed contractor will instantly become the nation’s sixth-largest defense contractor and a top-ten global defense supplier with 48,000 employees and customers in 100+ countries around the world.

Critically, this will also produce an estimated $1.9 billion in “free cash flow.”
