Week in Review: TWC, Energy, and Paula Deen

Happy Valentine’s Day, all. If you haven’t had time to make plans yet, here are a few last minute tactics to pull off a successful swoon.

The big news from this week is Comcast’s $45.2 billion acquisition of Time Warner Cable. The all-stock deal values TWC at $159 per share, significantly higher than the $132.50 per share offer from Charter that was deemed “grossly inadequate.” While the deal still has to pass through anti-trust proceedings, it is unlikely the DOJ will block it.

In other news, Joseph A. Bank got tired of courting Men’s Wearhouse and bought the parent company of Eddie Bauer instead.
