Krispy Kreme (KKD) and Jamba (JMBA) look like tasty takeover candidates with sales in coffee and beverage chains outpacing other restaurant sectors, according to a Bloomberg piece. Analysts think the well-known brands could fetch a cozy premium. JMBA +4.9% premarket off the M&A chatter.

    hello from Belgium , I don't know about KKD , but I never understood why SBUX didn't buy JMBA , this looks to me as a perfect synergy , on the other hand I found out through the years that what seems obvious never takes place and the more buzz about " might , should ,genererally , probably etc , never happens:-) have a nice day ; PS : I'm long Jmba

    JMBA needed to prove that this business could scale and be profitable. With the franchising model and some other changes, JMBA has now proven this out as 2012 will be a positive earnings year. This, PLUS the big new revenue stream with JambaGo! Any company looking to access the next generation of buyers in K-12, will find JambaGo is the perfect access point to that market. I thnk the stock will rise to $5, before JMBA management considers selling.

    (JMBA) is still too expensive. Not a buyout candidate. (GMCR) or even (JVA) would be a better buy.

     

    If (DNKN) buys (KKD), they would have a near monopoly on the donut and coffee business.
