Merger Rumors, Shotgun Weddings

Thursday, September 18, 2008 | 10:01 AM

Today's list of "more than a rumor, less than a done deal" for your perusement:

1. Morgan Stanley & Wachovia as a possible match up. That presumes that MS can't get financing from the China Investment Corp (CIC).

2. Goldman Sachs and HSBC is a very interesting potential pair up

3. Lloyds is taking over UK mortgage lender HBOS, creating a British giant (yah, its official).

Any other possible combinations out there?
