M&A watch: Enticing growth at Annie's could attract an offer

|By:, SA News Editor

Annie's (BNNY +1.5%) is being teed up by analysts on Wall Street as a potential takeover candidate.

The company boasts a strong brand in the organic sector, while shares have peeled off 33% YTD due in part to cost pressures.

Campbell Soup (CPB), Nestle (NSRGY), and General Mills (GIS) all fit the profile of a food giant that could make a run at Annie's.
