Shares in Peroni brewer SABMiller jumped yesterday off the back of speculation it could be a target for consolidation. Stocks leaped 85p to £13.09 following rumours it could be the target of Belgian brewer InBev – if it fails in an audacious takeover bid of Budweiser maker Anheuser-Busch. Traders and analysts believe the brewing sector is ripe for further consolidation following the takeover of Scottish & Newcastle by Heineken and Carlsberg.
