I think Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) should purchase Jamba Juice (NASDAQ:JMBA). They could do so while Jamba (JMBA) remains cheap. I'm thinking out loud, but it could work well.

JMBA became a public company last year through the use of a special purpose acquisition corporation [SPAC] - essentially a shell company that issues shares to the public and later utilizes those funds to buy an operating company. The firm's growth trajectory has just begun, and Starbucks would then possess an entire portfolio of high profit margin beverages and healthy foods. JMBA and SBUX could also continue to exist as separate brands.

It makes a lot of sense to me, but I'm not sure that JMBA wants to sell. Several hedge funds are 5+% shareholders, including George Soros. We'll see what happens, but I'm covering all bases by owning both stock
