Does anyone have a list of ADM's largest 10 vendors and largest 10 customers? I want to do some research on who may be willing to vertically integrate with ADM. This stock looks cheap every way I value it and can't imagine it would be overlooked to any of the aforementioned. Thanking you in advance of your responses.
The Gov't is already investigating the consolidation within the food processing arena so I think Cargill would have a tought time getting Gov't approval for a takeover of ADM. KFT would have a better chance. Additionally, I was thinking a transportation company (i.e. one of the rail companies). If someone can control the product and its distribution then you usually overall consolidated operating margins will improve.
Cant answer your question, but would have to be fairly large company to swallow up adm. I think there is always the risk that some wealthy group of people take adm private similar to cargil, if adm is viewed as undervalued.
