Two office supply product giants, Avery International and Dennison Manufacturing, received the U.S. Justice Department's blessing Tuesday to complete a stock swap merger valued at about $300 million. Pasadena-based Avery, with about 11,000 employees and 150 manufacturing plants around the world, and Dennison, of Framingham, Mass., agreed last May to a tax-free exchange of 1.12 shares of Avery stock for every share of Dennison stock. The new firm will be called Avery Dennison Corp.

Dennis Avery, who used his share of a family fortune to fund philanthropic ventures around the world and to commission artistic replicas of prehistoric creatures for a quirky sculpture garden in the desert of Borrego Springs, has died. He was 71. Avery died Monday at Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego. No cause of death was given. Avery was an heir to the fortune from the Avery Dennison Corp., which launched what is considered the first commercially viable marketing of self-sticking, peel-off labels, the kind of supplies now considered essential for offices, schools and home use. His father, R. Stanton Avery, a classic rags-to-riches American success story, founded the business in 1935 after borrowing $100 to build a label-making machine out of spare parts.

So when the stocks turn hot--as they have in recent weeks--it's cause for a lot of suspicion. Is this a real, sustainable surge for these battered issues, or is it just another brief trading rally? The spark for the rally has been the slide in market interest rates since late April.
