    Starbucks (SBUX -2.5%) buying Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR -0.8%) makes sense to The Motley Fool based on the emerging strategic fit between the two companies. Even allowing for a hefty premium - say $30 - a SBUX-GMCR deal goes off at a reasonable valuation in a merger that would give the combined company the muscle to outlive worries over K-Cup revenue and patent expirations as the single-cup market matures.

    Panera Bread (PNRA) slips in after hours trading following Starbucks' (SBUX) announcement that it was picking up La Boulange parent company Bay Bread. Although SBUX didn't specifically say it was making a run at PNRA, the writing is definitely on the wall. Panera has been at the top of this sector for a long time now, and a cut of its market would be a tasty target for a heavyweight competitor the likes of Starbucks. PNRA -1.6%, SBUX -2.4% AH.

    Shares of Jamba (JMBA +1.1%) shrug off Starbucks' (SBUX +1.3%) purchase of Evolution Fresh - seemingly undaunted by SBUX's plan to open juice bars in the U.S. starting in early to mid-2012. Jamba announced yesterday that it will open up 40-50 new U.S. stores and 10-15 new international, which now takes on added significance with a larger rival in its space.
