Consolidation prizes in Hillshire bidding war lined up

Second prize in the bidding war for Hillshire Brands (HSH +0.8%) could be Maple Leaf Foods (MLFNF) or Premium Brands (PRBZF), according to food sector analysts.

A takeover premium of 12X EBITDA gives shares of both companies room to run higher.

    It's heartening to see the lowest margin companies on the food chain of companies going for such lofty premiums.
    It makes one wonder what a good food company is worth!
