Parsad,

 

I respect writing and your opinion and I love this website.  I disagree on the CBY price.  Time will certainly tell (he he he) but I think Kraft did well and I think CBY will benefit from KFT's involvement.  I have owned CBY for 10 years, buying at a little below $24 and again when it briefly dropped below $20.  As I recall CBY dropped below $20 in the 2000 era (around then but I can't really remember) because investors were selling everything they owned to buy tech, including the braces off their children's teeth!

 

Ha!

 

Later.

Parsad,

 

Also I bought $340,000 of Kraft at $26.50 about a month ago so I'm not saying it was a good deal simply because I owned CBY.  I have seen a lot of food co mergers that do work and of couse and a believer this one will too.

Hi Dealraker,

 

The deal will work out fine for both parties, but Cadbury certainly got the better end of it.  I would not have paid that much, regardless of any sort of synergy the two CEO's think they will generate.  Cadbury earns about $800M annually...KFT paid almost 25 times earnings, and it's actually even worse because they used alot of undervalued KFT stock.  Cheers!

Cadbury will become immensely more profitable.  I have been somewhat jolted to see how little profit they make compared with others in the business.
