On Monday's MarketFoolery, host Chris Hill, Motley Fool One analyst Jason Moser and Stock Advisor Canada analyst Taylor Muckerman dive into the deal of the day.
Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) is buying Micro Systems (UNKNOWN:MCRS.DL) for $5.3 billion, and as Chris explains, this deal is its biggest acquisition since 2009. Oracle's stock, Chris notes, is up after the news, a bounce back after fourth-quarter results published last week. Jason says the pairing of the two companies makes a lot of sense, and he believes Oracle will do well from the acquisition, especially as Micro Systems serves a large range of customers. Chris wants to look at Oracle's future growth and wonders if the company plans to buy growth with Micro Systems. Taylor suggests that the company may grow in tourism with Micro Systems' large customer base. Chris thinks the long-term track record of the Oracle team is something to bet on.
