You’ve likely heard the news: LinkedIn has been acquired by Microsoft for $26.2 billion. In the meantime, Symantec has purchased Blue Coat Systems for approximately $4.65 billion. As some of the largest tech mergers in recent years, heads have begun to turn to see who is going to be the next company to make it big. Fortunately, Goldman Sachs is keeping track of the most likely companies to make moves next.

That’s right, according to the research analysts at Goldman Sachs, there are a number of companies more ripe for the picking than LinkedIn.
