    I'll take that with report with a few grains of their over priced sea salt

    This. Squared. Not short, either. Just being realistic.

    I love getting my investment news from rumors on Twitter. Good job, Seeking Alpha.

    Could it be GIS buying them? That would be a bit odd, but would be the best transition path, because they already have many products there, and in the future organic would be the new "conventional".

     

    My second bet would be, as always, Warren Buffet and Berkshire Hathaway.

    Nice to see that a single errant tweet can boost the price...

     

    Not so sure the runup today is this "report" but rather the upgrade and $48 price target

    Anyone who is aware of the Whole Foods culture knows that they will not be acquired.

    Their board chairman bought 1985 shares on 6/2/14 (his wife bought 660). If they were in talks regarding an acquisition, wouldn't he be barred from making such a purchase?
