LOS ANGELES (CBS.MW) -- Shares of Pixar closed more than 3 percent higher Thursday amid new speculation about the company's future distribution or merger partners.

Pixar (PIXR: news, chart, profile) climbed $2.30, or 3.5 percent, to $68.11. Analysts said a trading rumor hit the market floor that Sony (SNE: news, chart, profile) planned to make a bid for the computer animation company at $75 a share.

The news also showed up as a short line in Briefing.com's "Market Chatter" page. Sony shares rose 76 cents, or 1.8 percent, to $42.15.

"Our comment on all rumors is that we don't comment on rumors," Sony spokeswoman Ann Morfogen said. Pixar officials did not return phone calls.
