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 Interline Brands
So what: GS Capital Partners LP, the private equity arm of Goldman Sachs
Now what: For current shareholders the only question is whether or not to hang on for a sweeter offer or sell out now. The market has pushed shares near the offer price, maybe thinking the offer may be sweetened, but I think taking some or all chips off the table now is the best move. This eliminates the risk that the deal will fall through and locks in profits after today's jump. In either case, it's a great deal for Interline investors who can now sell out at a new high.
