So I bought MVL and DIS for my bro's kids. Of course, DIS is acquiring MVL
and it sent MVL through the roof.

What would happend to S(print), LVLT (Level 3) and PALM if they were to be
acquired? Do you get a big chunk of the acquiring company's stock?

Would that make these good things to buy or dangerous?

(They all seem cheap enough and troubled enough to make them candidates for
M&A, I think)
