"The thing that we're taking away from this whole trend in M&A is to take a step back. One headline is about who's buying who, billions of dollars, valuations and is not this exciting. But, the news item two steps down, is about the billions of dollars the banks are spending for all the M&A activity they did in 2008 and 2009. If you can't learn from history repeating itself, why would you get excited and buy into all the hype?"
