just in case any one else interested: from reuts mid day Bucking the weaker overall market was medical devices manufacturer Smith & Nephew (S&N), which rose 2 percent. Traders attributed S&N's gains to a research note from JP Morgan, whose analysts said speculation of a possible bid from rival Stryker could provide support for the stock over the next three to six months. JP Morgan also mentioned upbeat comments from S&N's management, who said the company could win market share due to disruption caused by sector consolidation, such as Zimmer's bid for Biomet.

mid day comments: But Smith & Nephew PLC shares again topped the FTSE 100 as they rose 1.9%. The shares have jumped nearly 10% since Wednesday on speculation that the artificial-joint maker will land an acquisition bid. Medical-device maker Stryker Corp.'s (SYK) chief told Fox Business on Thursday that his company had worked on a possible bid for its U.S. rival, but a formal offer hasn't materialized.

and from the Telegraph: Takeover speculation took over markets yesterday as more US companies looked across the pond for their next targets. Smith & Nephew (S&N) extended its gains for a second day and topped the FTSE 100 after press reports of a planned takeover bid from US rival Stryker. Traders said the return of takeover speculation would continue to support S&N shares. "There have been bid rumours in Smith & Nephew for ages," Mark Ward, head of execution trading at Sanlam Securities, said. "People are buying on the back of that." That led the London-listed maker of artificial knees and hips to finish the day up 35.5, or 3.6pc, to £10.29.

posted 24 April Smith & Nephew jumps on news of Zimmer bid for Biomet Talk of further sector consolidation follows new $13.35bn US healthcare deal The spate of deals, real and reported, in the pharmaceutical sector has spilled over into another part of the healthcare world. Medical device maker Zimmer has announced a $13.35bn deal to buy US orthopaedic products group Biomet. The news has put the spotlight on Smith and Nephew, which specialises in hip and knee implants and wound management and rejected a £15bn merger with Biomet in 2011. S&N has often been tipped as a takeover target, with another US group Johnson & Johnson offering £7bn for the business just before the Biomet proposal. S&N's shares have jumped 30p to 909.5p as news of the Zimmer deal prompted renewed speculation of consolidation in the sector. article from guardian

knighty, from the looks of things ,there has been steady volumes that could look like stake building , and what seems to be an incessant rise in share price without much news , but at where the pe is at the moment I don't see any logic in a bid
