Jefferies sees Unilever as interested if Colgate is for sale
After the New York Post reported that Colgate (CL) may be willing to sell for $100 per share, Jefferies analyst Martin Deboo says he'd expect Unilever (UN, UL) to be an interested party. The analyst notes he's argued for some time that Unilever should create a "New World Order" in Household & Personal Care by acquiring Colgate. Such a deal would support his bullish thesis on Unilever shares.
