Nearest Resistance: $60

Nearest Support: N/A

Catalyst: Merger Agreement

One small-cap stock that's getting plenty of attention today is Robbins & Myers ( RBN), a firm that announced a merger agreement with National-Oilwell Varco ( NOV), the latter paying $60 per share in cash for each share of RBN. While that's spiking trading volume in RBN, there isn't a trade to be made here.

Unless you're trying to vie for the 38 cents per share in merger arbitrage opportunity that's currently priced into RBN.
