|About: WhiteWave Foods (WWAV)|By:, SA News Editor

Stifel Nicolaus weighs in on Buy-rated WhiteWave Foods (WWAV) after the company snapped up Earthbound Farms for a cool $600M.

The investment firm sees $0.07 EPS accretion by 2014 from the merger with most of the synergies from the slightly disparate business coming from the back office.

WhiteWave will continue on a path of "disciplined" acquisitions to boost top-line growth, says Stifel.
