The 14% differential only works with the closing numbers (GMST $62.88 and TVGIA $35.56) on 6/29. Buying TVGIA at the open on 6/30 to get a quick return assumes GMST will not fall and TVGIA will rise to meet it. If GMST drops, the gain is lost. GMST has a serious gap at $52/53 that I wouldn't be surprised will fill before the merger is done.

Cheers, Charles
