Head of Equity Strategy / Saxo Bank

Market price:
Microsoft (MSFT:xnas) is set to buy LinkedIn (LNKD:xnys) for $196/share in an all-cash deal. The deal represents a 46.5% premium over Friday's close price for LinkedIn. 

LinkedIn is part of Saxo Bank's SaxoStrats portfolio after we entered at $115.06/share back in March. As a result, we gained 70.3% on the position in only 96 days. 

Microsoft says the deal has minimal dilution effect (less than 1%) in fiscal year 2017. LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weinerwill stay on, and he is also endorsing the deal. 

Microsoft sees the agreement adding to its earnings-per-share in FT19. LinkedIn chairman Hoffman also supports the deal.
