>My take: so long Charter and short Comcast as an arbitrage?

Interesting strategy, I think the AT&T / Time Warner will set the stage for mergers of this type. IMO That deal being a poster child to your hypothetical deal. We have a new FCC chairman. IMO Any type of hypothetical deals before that, would have to be structured. This as not to pay significant break up fees if the deal cannot be completed. Mergers of this type generally take a long time to be completed because of the regulatory hurdles. Good luck on your trade. Whatever that might be.
