From a medical devices magazine , ( didn't know there was such a thing !) Anonymous sources tell Bloomberg that medtech titan Medtronic is looking to take over Smith & Nephew, possibly using the occasion to shift its headquarters to the U.K. Report: Is Medtronic looking to buy Smith & Nephew? Move over Stryker (NYSE:SYK), medtech titan Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) may swoop in to claim orthopedics giant Smith & Nephew (FTSE:SN, NYSE:SNN) for itself, according to rumors circulation on The Street. Citing anonymous sources, Bloomberg reported today that Medtronic has is considering making a move and that the company may further use the buyout as an excuse to shift its corporate headquarters to the U.K. to take advantage of more favorable tax rates. The potential deal is still in very early talks, the sources said. Sign up to get our free newsletters delivered right to your inbox. The news sent both companies' shares up today, with MDT shares trading 3.6% higher at $63.20 and SNN shares up 13.6% to $98.60 as of about 2:50 p.m. EST. Stryker confirmed late last month that the company had also been taking a look at Smith & Nephew as a potential acquisition, with analysts estimating that a deal may be worth as much as $19 billion. ========================================== $19 bil would give around £12.90 I estimate , allowing the start of this climb at around £9.50 , and an average takeover premium of 30 35 % it sounds pretty feasible to me

closed at 1152p equivalent in USA after a pullback and seems to be a fairly good trading buy at this 1100p level as could well be higher than this when US futures market for SN opens at about 11.30am I think . But intra day chart does not indicate a bounce yet and I guess the 1070 level a safer buy if it gets there . I am in at 1104p anyway !

will this motivate JNJ to step in ?? Medtronic Inc. (MDT) is considering an offer for U.K. medical-device maker Smith & Nephew, Bloomberg News reported Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter. Smith & Nephew is aware of Medtronic's interest, two people told Bloomberg. Preparations by Medtronic for a possible bid are at an early stage, the people said. Smith & Nephew recently traded at $96.10, up nearly 11%. Full story at: www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-06-04/medtronic-said-to-evaluate-takeover-of-smith-nephew.html Write to nymonitoring@dowjones.com

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.
