Shares of Blue Buffalo were trading a tick above General Mills' offer before the official market open Friday, but as was the case with Bob Evans Farms past year, I would caution investors to not expect a bidding war at this high a price. The company presently has an average rating of "Buy" and an average target price of $32.54.

But there are limits to how much buyers are willing to spend, said Jagdale, who doesn't see another company stepping forward to acquire Blue Buffalo. If you are reading this story on another site, it was stolen and reposted in violation of US & worldwide copyright and trademark law. To me, it makes a lot of sense to get into beverages, snack food and/or pet food. Natural pet food is the fastest-growing part of the pet-food market, according to the Wall Street Journal.
