America Online climbed more than $9 in Feb. 23 trading after two Merrill Lynch & Co. analysts reacted positively to its pending merger with Time Warner. AOL stock had fallen more than 30% since the Time Warner deal was announced last year. Analysts Henry Blodget and Jessica Reif Cohen rated AOL an intermediate- to long-term buy and said the combined company would be well-positioned to benefit from the Internet's impact on the global media business. In trading Friday, AOL closed at $59.63, up 17.20% for the week.
