Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.

What: Shares of Evercore Partners (NYSE: EVR) jumped 10% on a slew of good news for the company.

So what: One of the winners of the AT&T (NYSE: T) and T-Mobile merger appears to be Evercore, who advised AT&T on the deal along with JPMorgan (NYSE: JPM) and Greenhill & Co. (NYSE: GHL). There's also a little optionsXpress (Nasdaq: OXPS) deal that the company also advised on that was announced today. The cool $1 billion Charles Schwab is paying for the firm will yield a nice advisory fee for Evercore.

Now what: It may just be coincidence that two big deals announced this weekend involved Evercore, but no matter how you look at it the company is on a roll. This follows a report from Goldman Sachs last week that said Evercore was one of the most compelling buys in the sector, and no matter how skeptical you are of analysts, they were spot-on with Evercore (was it a coincidence they were upgraded last week?). I don't like buying on a pop like this, but if the stock pulls back a bit I may be tempted to put a few shillings to work with Evercore Partners. This type of business momentum is just too tough to ignore.
