Might be worth looking at what the CEO does.. ?

His large sales at £12.74 and £12.78 now look very astute.

5 different CEO's in 10 years, eh

A rating of 16 X forward looks more than fair for SN. in a post ZIRP world.
The market might see it differently, but that's how it looks to me.

Laurence, part of the issue is arguably their main competitors growing stronger
v SN over the last decade. This may account for some of SN's weaker metrics.

While a bid can't be ruled out, it has been mentioned as a takeover candidate for decades.

If you go back 10 years, this was a high margin business with low gearing and
a prodigious cash generator. Those bullish on SN may say that's now reflected in
the current share price, however circa 2013, at approx £8 plus a share you were
buying at the time a great business.

How are margins stable?, trading profit margin registered a hefty fall at the H1 to

For years SN had trading profit margins in excess of 20%, for a few years around 24/25%.

Margins began a multi year decline around 2015/16 (from memory)
and despite multiple CEO's since, each with a new refreshed strategy
to improve business performance, results have arguably been sadly lacking.

Margin compression leading to reduced free cash flow is central to the bearish case on SN.

Stryker do not need SN, while you can't rule a bid out I would be surprised to see one from Stryker.

Nothing exciting no, but equally still nothing to suggest that they're ever going to deliver decent ROE, ROCE etc

Always felt to me that SN achieves a fraction of its potential. Why...I'm not sure

As a SN. holder I listened to most of the recording of yesterday's webcast.
Alot of good stuff especially in logistics and optimization of inventory and US improvement but what stopped me pushing the buy button was not so much the supply shortages(especially semi conductors and resins) but rather that in the Q&A the difficulty they were having on passing on cost increases came up 2/3 times.

Seem to be following the same stocks!From the healthcare sector I've got SN on my watchlist and good to see they are in line. Some of the constraining factors (materials and staff shortages, FX headwinds) could develop into major issues but who knows.

£13/4 bn to take this out - plus their £2 bn approx in net debt.

Is SN. worth £15 bn...looks a stretch to me but never say never.

Stryker already carry a lump of debt, realistically only leaves JnJ imv.
