This has two benefits for investors; one is the growth that the large players will create while the other is the benefit you immediately receive when the business you own is take over at a 30% or higher premium to current stock prices.

ADSW was purchased for $33.1 in cash while investors expecting a 10% investment return from ADSW’s business, should not had paid more than $20 per share, including the value of the assets. So, to fully take advantage of investing in the sector, you want to buy when the actual business is delivering a satisfactory yield, be it 10% or 15% if you are like me, and then sell when the market decides to pay full value, where a 5% return is satisfactory for companies like Waste Management. Sounds strange? Well, if you can borrow at 4% and get a 5% return on your investment, you get rich quickly, plus if there are synergies even faster.
