Wachovia to buy A.G. Edwards

For $6.8 billion in cash and stock Wachovia is buying AG Edwards, and will become the second largest brokerage firm in the country.

Also somewhat surprising is the announcement that the firm will be headquartered in St. Louis, the home of AG Edwards, rather than Richmond, where Wachovia is headquartered.
