E-Trade buying Harrisdirect for $700M

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- E-Trade Financial Corp. shares rallied Monday after the company said it would buy brokerage Harrisdirect from BMO Financial Group for $700 million cash.

The move marks the latest in a consolidation among brokerage firms that saw Ameritrade set plans to buy TD Waterhouse in June.

"E-Trade is reacting to [its] failed bid for Ameritrade by acquiring an alternative target," Fox-Pitt Kelton analyst David Trone said in a note to clients Monday.

Trone said mergers in the industry may not be over, and suggested that Ameritrade may one day attempt to take over E-Trade.
