According to a report on TheStreet.com, Jim Cramer said on cable network CNBC that he felt recent trading in Monster options suggested that a takeover announcement could be made within the next month. He cited Google (GOOG) and newspaper publisher Gannett (GCI), which jointly owns Monster rival CareerBuilder.com with fellow publishers Tribune (TRB) and McClatchy (MNI) as possible suitors. He also suggested that Monster could fetch $60 in a buyout. The stock was trading at about $44 before this afternoonâs surge.
