Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD +0.7%) trades higher as the ripple effect of a takeover of Grupo Modelo continues to get bandied about. Though a deal is far from final, it's believed A-B would need to divest its Busch, Busch Light, and Natural Light brands to gain regulatory approval. While analysts and investors seem to approve a potential merger for the most part (put options soar?), waiting in the wings is SABMiller (SBMRY.PK) - long-rumored to a takeover target. Also up in the air: A-B's pursuit of Monster Beverage (MNST).

    A-B might want to look at their Busch profits before exiting that brand; Busch became the A-B beer of choice when economy prices went up and Budweiser became the more expensive beer - live in a basic working man's economy world.
