AUSTRALIA: Foodland shares tipped to soar

Western Australia-based grocery chain Foodland Associated could see its share price soar to A$20 (US$10.7) if its subsidiary successfully negotiates a deal to buy out Woolworths New Zealand (NZ). Market analysts predicted the surge after the Privy Council decided earlier this week to allow Progressive, Foodland's NZ subsidiary, to bid for the supermarket chain, prompting renewed interest in the potential acquisition.
