Georgia Gulf (GGC +34%) trades nearly 10% higher than the $30/share offer from Westlake Chemical (WLK +7.6%), lending credence to comments by Telly Zachariades that he wouldn't be surprised to see a higher bid. The banker says M&A activity in the chemical sector will pick up steam in 2012 because of ample cash on the balance sheets of many big players.
