TD Waterhouse Group Inc., which last week pulled out of a deal to invest $25 million in an alternative stock-trading system known as Island, said Tuesday it would invest in REDIbook, an Island rival. The No. 3 U.S. Internet brokerage firm chose REDIbook over Island because it was impressed with the investors behind the firm, said John Chapel, president of Waterhouse's U.S. brokerage operations. Other REDIbook investors include Charles Schwab Corp.

TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. said Wednesday that the online brokerage would consider a merger as it finished integrating TD Waterhouse's U.S. retail securities business.

Capital Advisors urging the company to make a deal. The funds said they owned 8.4% of Ameritrade's shares.

Online discount brokerages Ameritrade Holding Corp. and TD Waterhouse USA are discussing a possible merger, the companies said Tuesday. Analysts said a deal could be worth up to $3 billion and probably would be structured so Ameritrade owned the lion's share of the combined company. Omaha-based Ameritrade last month rebuffed a takeover overture from rival E-Trade Financial Corp., which offered Ameritrade shareholders 47.5% of the combined company plus $1.5 billion in cash.

Toronto-Dominion Bank offered Wednesday to buy the 12% of No. 2 discount brokerage TD Waterhouse Group Inc. that it doesn't already own for about $409 million. The bank also said it will fire 200 employees at its securities arm, resulting in a $102-million pretax charge in its fiscal fourth quarter ending Oct. 31. Toronto-Dominion (TD), Canada's No. 2 bank, would pay $9 a share for each share of TD Waterhouse, 45% more than Tuesday's closing price of $6.20.
