Thanks for the contribution. I'll add TOWN to my watch list. I have some others on my watch list listed below in my link. I only own one bank stock currently -Lyons Bancorp, Inc. (LYBC). It's a micro cap, but has done extremely well since I first bought back in 2010. I've added a couple of times since then and sold some recently. On my watch list. First Niagara has a pending offer out fairly recently by Key bank. It's being opposed, but I never bought it .

Ne small buy today to possibly establish a position. FSS -Federal Signal Corp. I'll see how earnings perform on May 5. I liked the recent acquisition of a Canadian Company that fits their sweeper business. They seemed to have taken advantage of the difference between the Canadian and American dollar.

P.S. Fits my CECO position well. I also remember as a kid, their street sweepers (Elgin).

Chobani workers get ownership stake that could make them millionaires.

>Employees of Greek yogurt maker Chobani are getting an unexpected windfall: an ownership stake in the company that could make millionaires of some.

CEO and Founder Hamdi Ulukaya told the company’s 2,000 full-time employees at its Upstate New York plant Tuesday they’ll receive shares worth up to 10% of the company’s value when it goes public or is sold.

RE: LWAY -On my theory that protein based breakfast & lunch products will be acquisition targets. Targets won't be at cheap multiples either. In the case of LWAY. Family approval is needed. Danone Foods also has potential outside acquirers, guarded by it's investment. However IMO Kefir is not exposed enough knowledge wise to the general public. This to go through a major growth phase yet. IMO that's why I believe it's a target. Explosion potential, but at a relatively high multiple cost. I base this on the skepticism Chobani Greek Yogurt once had. It's widely know an accepted now. Proof is in the Greek yogurt competition. This after the biggies saw Chobani grow.
