Everyone is talking about the big news this week, Loblaws buying Shoppers, but the market is offering another opportunity to benefit from the deal.

Loblaws it currently trading at $48.50, up $1 from where it was prior to the announcement. There are only two possible outcomes: Either the deal goes through or it doesn't.

Mid-year review

Markets: The first half of 2013 offered a much easier environment for equity investors than did the last few years. There was stable but not prolific growth in the U.S., the European credit situation calmed down and we had the added bonus of massive monetary stimulus out of Japan. The result was a less volatile, more widespread advance in the markets for most of the quarter, with all the excitement happening underneath the surface (defensive vs. offence and sector rotations).
