On November 8, 2016, Donald Trump was elected president, and, soon after, bankers across the country watched as stock prices increased.

Some analysts have referred to the stock increases as the “Trump Bump” – the question is, what might the Trump Bump mean for M&A pricing?

Michael Rediker, vice president of Porter White & Company, authored a piece on the “Trump Bump” for the March / April 2017 edition of the Alabama Bankers Association’s “Board Briefs.” In the piece, he examines trends that have emerged since the election and discusses how those trends might impact M&A pricing throughout 2017.
