I see rio as an example

Be careful with that one, as it's a foreign stock with irregular dividends. But indeed that did come up on my radar, and definitely has risks associated with economic slowdown.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Vale and PBR would also seem to fit the criteria

seems like a sure profit if deal closes at $54
buy at $49 = +/- 10% ROI in 6 months?
Twitter worth to buy now?

Sure and if are mutually exclusive

Indeed. As im sure (no pun intended) you understood that the sure profit is on the price of the stock and the if is on the likelihood of the deal going through. There are people that would bet on elon musks ability to get things done faster than bet on the price of a single stock, so while youre correct that the deal might not go through that probably wasnt his concern.

Even if the deal doesn't go through, the very visible process that brought the TWTR board to its knees, made dorsey get his nose brown, and changed twitter policy have already in effect probably accomplished most of what Musk intended. Does he still need to follow through? The man is a massive troll and I don't think he's actually interested in running the company as much as he's interested in a free license to tweet whatever he pleases.

I will neither say I told you so, nor be even remotely surprised, if the buyout does not get completed.

Why wouldnt the deal go though? Not very many outs in the merger agreement.

Actually very surprised there is such a large delta between current price and buyout price.

Indeed.

Did I miss something? Did inflation suddenly disappear? Oh, rates won't be going to the moon in one shot, rather in 2 or 3.

Nothing fundamental has changed here at all. Color me skeptical, but I think this pop may fade in the short term

I guess volatility is the name of the game, just like the large swings we saw in the spring of 2020. Not for the faint of heart.
