Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE: LVS)

CST Brands Inc (NYSE: CST)

Snyder’s-Lance Inc (NASDAQ: LNCE)

Analyst Joseph Gabelli estimates that Snyder’s-Lance “should realize $65 million of net cost synergies from the [Diamond Foods, Inc (NASDAQ: DMND)] deal within the first two years, while also refinancing Diamond’s relatively high-cost debt, and utilizing its sizeable tax-loss carryforwards.”
