For public companies involved in a merger/acquisition, the parties' SEC Filings and Earnings Conference Calls, leading up to and shortly after the event, can provide helpful insights about each party's motives.
In particular, pay attention to an SEC filing called the DEFM14A, if one exists.
(Caveat: A large company that's acquiring a small target might not release a DEFM14A.)
