Family Dollar (FDO -1.3%), which Nelson Peltz's Trian Fund offered to buy for $7.7B, is considered the most likely to fail among 2011 deals. The stock is now as much as 20% below Peltz's proposed bid of up to $60/share - the widest gap of any pending takeover announced this year, indicating merger arbitragers are projecting that FDO won’t be purchased at that price.
