    Better Offer in the Works?

    Shares trading up to $84 at the close, well through the current $83.50 bid by Suntory . . . maybe DEO is looking, or at least not denying it? No reason a better deal at $95 wouldn't work well for them (esp. with synergies) . . . and of course the BEAM Board has obligations to evaluate any competing proposal and do what's best for shareholders if it is a superior offer - the company obviously is in play officially, and is a pretty rare asset with good global brand power. Has anyone heard any interesting rumors about potential competing bids, that might be what's driving the stock up recently?
