Merrill Lynch has laid off two high-yield analysts, and reassigned a third. Mike Plancey, a v.p. who covered the paper and forest products sectors confirms that he has been let go. He says he is looking at opportunities on the buy-side. He was at Merrill for five and a half years. Eric Matejevich, a gaming analyst and v.p., declined comment, but a high-yield official formerly at Merrill confirms he was laid off and says Matejevich is also looking for opportunities on the buy-side. The official says Jonathan Savas, a director and wireline telecom analyst, has moved to an unspecified position within another department at Merrill. Savas did not return calls. Clare Schiedermayer, head of high-yield research, did not return calls.
