I will be watching with great interest. If GDP growth accelerates in the US, as anticipated. I can see the US market being attractive. Especially to acquisition minded foreign & low US exposure market share, participating companies. This for synergistic acquisitions or new plant investments. Currently, I can't see a Trump administration being friendly to Chinese companies wanting to buy US based companies of scale. This such as the previously approved Smithfield foods deal.

I just bought some risky & depressed MNTX today. Ironically TEREX which was on Chinese based Zoomlion acquisition list is trading higher now than the original cash offer. I also hypothetically think this smaller type size could get through. I sold my TEX, but I still believe infrastructure spending will be a bright spot. IMO TEX could also be interested in buying back MNTX.
