Disney NOT Looking to Acquire Hasbro?

{mosimage} MTV Geek's recent circulation of a rumor that Disney was looking to acquire Hasbro has been met with "no comment" from Hasbro. However, advisers for the toy company report that they have not heard of any such talks, and analysts say that such a move would not be in either Hasbro's or Disney's best interests:

Hasbro declined comment, citing its policy of not talking about rumor or speculation. CNBC analyst David Faber reported that Hasbro's advisors told him there's "absolutely nothing going on that they are aware of at all, in any way, shape or form" involving Hasbro or Disney.

Wall Street analysts said a Disney acquisition didn't make much sense, just after Disney agreed to buy Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. And for any deal to happen, Hasbro would have to dissolve agreements with Disney's competitors.
