JABIL INC. (JBL-NYSE) and FLEX INC. (FLEX-NASDAQ) would make a nice merger idea. For tax reasons for one thing. Flex pays close to 10% - 15% tax each year to the government. JBL is based in Florida and pays over 30% federal tax plus any state or city taxes. Here in New York City we have federal and then state and NYC taxes to pay or get refunds from each year.

THAT IS CALLED TRIPLE TAX BRACKETS.

When they merge they can then plan to split back into flex inc. and jabil inc. FLEX will handle everything in Asia and Jabil will handle the USA, Canada and Mexico and points south. Now that Trump is President JABIL may finally get some tax relief. That could easily get the shares moving up, up and away to $40 but the end of the year.
