It seems that the top management at XM and SIRI have made it official, they announced today that they're going to attempt a merger. XM (XMSR, 13.98) and Sirius Satellite Radio (SIRI, 3.70) agreed to combine in a $13 billion merger of equals, amid concerns about slowing growth and the cost to build up their programming content and subscriber bases. However, the deal, which is expected to result in substantial cost savings, still faces significant regulatory hurdles.

In other words, no real money changes hands, just funny money.

Under the terms of the agreement, XM shareholders would receive 4.6 Sirius shares for each XM share held, or a 21.7% premium based on the two companies' closing prices on Friday. While the deal was billed as a merger of equals, Sirius would own about 53% of the combined company, which would have had about $1.5 billion in revenues in 2006 and about 14 million subscribers, and XM would own roughly 47%. In other words, no real money changes hands, just funny money.

The deal must overcome significant regulatory obstacles, including an FCC provision that specifically restricts the two companies from merging. It must also meet antitrust approval from the Department of Justice. Pending regulatory approval, the companies expect the transaction to be completed by the end of 2007.

Dollar How Low Will It Go?

The dollar continues to fall at a more than one month low agianst the yen Thursday, after U.S. government reports showed a mixed picture about the economy and the first net capital outflow for a year-and-a-half.

The yen received a boost after government data showed the Japanese economy expanded at a faster-than-expected pace in the fourth-quarter, sparking speculation the Bank of Japan will raise interest rates next week.

"We have better than expected data from Japan. Many are speculating that the BoJ is going to have to hike rates now," said Naomi Fink, senior currency strategist at BNP Paribas. "The U.S. data doesn't help, especially given" the capital flows report showing dwindling flows to fund the U.S. current account deficit, she said.

The British pound traded at $1.9544, compared with $1.9625. The dollar changed hands at 1.2333 Swiss francs, compared with 1.2349 francs.

The euro fetched 156.89 yen, compared with 158.55 yen. See live currency rates.

"The dollar is on the ropes as the outlook for both growth differentials and interest rate differentials continue to deteriorate," said Michael Woolfolk, senior currency strategist at The Bank of New York. "Look for the dollar for sustain more losses going into the three-day holiday weekend."

First outflow since 2005

Monthly capital flows reversed to an outflow of $11 billion in December compared to an inflow of $70.5 billion in November, the Treasury Department said. This was the first outflow since June 2005.

Net long-term capital inflows, meanwhile, fell to $15.6 billion in December from $84.9 billion in November. This is the lowest inflow since January 2002. The trade gap for the month stood at $61.2 billion. See full story.

"Today's TICS surprise moves global imbalance and U.S. twin deficit problem back on the front burner, with a red flag raised on adequate funding of the U.S. current account deficit," Woolfolk said.

Valentine's Day

Valetine's Day

Did you know that tomorrow is Valentine's Day? Well you better have! Though, we are talking about Valentine's Day today the real question is what is Valentine's day really about these days. We keep seeing more and more money revolving around Valentine's Day and what seems to be less and less love. Though, my heart tells me it should be more about love and appreciation for those who matter most to us. Though, the said factor of the matter is that Valentine's Day is truly big business.

According to the National Retail Federation, U.S. consumers are expected to fork over almost $17 billion this year on Valentine's gifts for their loved ones. That's $17 billion spent on one day -- in the name of cubid.

Friday Bullets

When the market trend challenges their beliefs, what do we hear from market "experts"?

I am not wrong; most people are just too stupid to understand what's going on.

My arguments are really good. It's only a matter of time until I'm right. (I am not wrong, just early.)

I never guaranteed that what I predicted would happen. I just said it probably would based on history.

If the Plunge Protection Team (or hedge funds or big brokers) hadn't manipulated the market, I would have been right.

I may be wrong on a lot of little things, but I'm right on the big ones.

I was wrong (thank goodness), but following my advice didn't cost that much. If I'd been right, and you didn't follow my advice, you'd be wiped out.

What I said in public may have looked wrong, but what I privately told clients was dead-on.

How could I be wrong if I'm so rich and famous?

What will Crude oil do? And what kind of effect will it have on the market?
