Also, the "market cap" (total value of all stock) for Starbucks Corporation (SBUX) is currently over $37 Billion! That's far more than all of Disney's acquisitions in the past 20 years combined! And any company wanting to acquire Starbucks would need to offer substantially MORE than that amount in a takeover bid.

Finally, here's a friendly suggestion to the OP: The topic name ("Disney to buy starbucks????") seemed to be about an actual rumor, but the post content ("Aaannnnnnd go.....") was then meaningless. If the post had had a more appropriate title (such as "Would Disney Benefit from Acquiring Starbucks?") and the content had been a paragraph or two supporting the rationale for such a business move, the reaction here would have been different. The replies would probably still have argued that such an acquisition would not make business sense and would be extremely unlikely. But at least there would not have been the suspicion that it was a troll post.
