A lot to like about Sysco-US Foods combination

|By:, SA News Editor

The outsized rally in Sysco (SYY +13.1%) following its purchase of US Foods is tied to a deal price which analysts see as coming in on the low end.

Though shares have fallen back from their lofty +$43 perch, sentiment is still decidedly bullish on volume already 10X normal trading activity due to the enormous synergy opportunities presented by the combination.

Unlike many merger partners, Sysco and US Foods are fairly complimentary on a geographic basis.
