Future acquisitions? I do not know, but I find it curious that BK’s price sputtered when their name came up in the Barclays deal. Personally I feel they should hold on to as much cash as possible. The world economy is not in recovery yet, it just is not falling as fast.
Good question. I'd like to see them acquire Northern Trust. Market cap for NTRS is somewhere in the area of 12.6 billion which I think makes it affordable. I know some find STT attractive as a merger candidate but I feel they are overpriced. JMHO
