Two Ways To Play: This Bud's For You


Strengthen your portfolio in good times and bad.

Anheuser-Busch (BUD) jumped in today's trading. According to Bloomberg, the maker of Budweiser beer, received a bid valued at $46 billion from larger Belgium brewer InBev (INBVF).

The possible bid is worth $65 a share and would give InBev valuable access to the U.S. markets. The merger with InBev, known for its Stella Artois brands as well as Beck's and Bass, would also create a company that would distribute a fourth of the world's beer.

Billionaire Investor Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A) is Anheuser-Busch's second largest shareholder with over 35 million shares. Berkshire spokeswoman Jacki Wilson made no immediate comment.

BUD finished the session up 7.66% to $56.61.

From the Bull Pen: Investors in BUD can feel confident they will get full value for their shares with Buffett on their side. BUD bulls can remain long the stock in hopes for a higher bid.

From the Bear Cave
: On a technical basis, bears might see a downside play in The Boston Beer Company (SAM). Bears see the downtrend from mid-March.
