    Plausible synergistic buyout

    Why not Yum Brands buying JACK in a stock transaction? They would love to expand the Jack in the Box brand in those other 32 states in which JACK is not represented, and it also gets them into the burger QSR sector. (they are everywhere else) Additionally, just imagine what YUM could do with Qdoba? In a couple years that chain would rival Chipotle. The kicker here is YUM's international footprint and how both brands could be expanded overseas. Yum would pay a nice premium for JACK because they would be getting a company with a balance sheet stronger than their own. And with only minimal dilution, if any, looking a year out. I would characterize this as YUM getting something for nothing, other than the small dividend they pay per share.

    Remember, you saw it here first! Big J in L.A.
