Burger King to Buy Tim Hortons for $11.4 Billion

Canada has taken a hard line to it's big companies being bought out. We will see how this goes.

If I remember right. It was the Peltz brothers that decided for Wendy's to spin of Tim Hortons for shareholder enhancement.
Now it's time for a Burger King try. Warren Buffett said to be funding part of the deal. The market has taken a positive reaction.

Warren tried to provide funding for a Coty/Avon deal that fell apart. Now Coty has a venture with Avon for distribution of some products in Avon's profitable Latin Americas business.

If that venture becomes successful. I see renewed speculative appeal in AVP. Especially since the Avon bribery China scandal will be settled at a high cost to the company.

P.S. I've notice the Carrols Restaurant Group, Inc. (TAST) has move up smartly due to the fact it it the franchisee of many Burger Kings. I still remember the days my parents took us to Carrols here in Western NY. There all Burger Kings now. Their club burger was 25 cents I think.
