Shares of a number of natural food makers are climbing after one of the companies in the sector, Annies (BNNY), announced last night that it agreed to be acquired by General Mills (GIS). In a note to investors today, research firm Oppenheimer wrote that the deal should cause the valuations of two natural food makers, Boulder Brands (BDBD) and WhiteWave (WWAV), to rise in the near-term.

The terms of the acquisition of Annies imply a nearly 40x P/E multiple to consensus FY15 forecasts for the company, according to Parikh.
