Transalta (TA-PD.TO) – Exchange Offer – 2.7% upside

Arbitrage Trade

Upside – 2.7%

Expiration Date - Q1 2017

This idea was suggested to me by one reader of the site – it’s an arbitrage trade in Canadian preferred shares. Upside is tiny, but the deal itself is interesting – so I decided to write it up. I have a small position mainly to track how this transaction plays out.



Coats Group (COA.LN) – Forced Selling – 10% upside

This special situation results from recent forced selling due to delisting from Australia and New Zealand exchanges.

Long investors in Coats Group (listed in London Stock Exchange) stand to make 10%+ if prices revert to back to previous 30p/share vs current GBP 26p/share.
