A take out at $60 a share would value DPS at around 18.8x 2013 earnings and about 2x Revenues. It would cost Coke approx $13 billion. Plus with all the synergies you could probably save on the expense side which would make the 18.8 multiple look cheaper. Very realistic. I would say do not speculate on a takeover but, is it really speculating when you buy DPS at 12.5x forward earnings with a 3.5+% div yield? This one is a no brainer.
