Medical play shoots skywards Prosthetic joint builder Smith & Nephew (LSE: SN) has also enjoyed a splendid bump higher during the past week, the stock having added 9% between Monday and Friday. And I believe the London business can continue pulling away from its recent 12-month lows as growth investors pile in. Smith & Nephew received a shot in the arm last week thanks to rumours that Stryker was poised to launch a £12.1bn takeover attempt. The US-based medical firm is flush with cash and has apparently appointed Goldman Sachs to advise on a potential deal. And I believe Smith & Nephew is certainly worth the fuss. Demand for the company’s synthetic body parts continues to explode, particularly in the white-hot North American market. Meanwhile acquisitions in developed and emerging regions alike should significantly bolster sales in the years ahead. Smith & Nephew is expected to recover from an anticipated 4% earnings fall in 2015 with a 10% rise next year, resulting in a P/E rating of 19.1 times. I believe the firm’s improving position in a rapidly-expanding market fully warrants such a rating.

"We expect annual revenue growth at Blue Belt Technologies to be in excess of 50% over the medium-term from a 2015 base of approximately $19 million. Investment in the combined R&D programmes and supportive clinical evidence will dilute Group trading profit margin by around 60bps in 2016, with the business becoming profitable in 2018. Return on capital employed is expected to exceed our weighted average cost of capital in year four."Slightly churlish reaction to a reasonable set of third qtr figures.Adverse currency impact resulting from strong dollar.Disappointment that this smallish acquisition won't be earnings accretive for a number of years.Of course,with Stryker in the wings,maybe the market would have preferred news of a predator stalking S&N rather than an acquisition by the company itself.

Smith & Nephew has booked Q1 revenue of $1,104 million, up 3% on an underlying basis. Reported growth of 3% includes effects of -8% currency headwind offset by 8% benefit from acquisitions. The company's full-year outlook remains unchanged, it said. "We continue to expect to deliver higher underlying revenue growth in 2015 than in 2014 and an improvement in trading profit margin," it said in a statement. "We expect the phasing of revenue and profit to be more pronounced in 2015 than 2014, with profitability in the second half being significantly stronger than the first. "As previously guided we expect a significant currency headwind in 2015. If current exchange rates prevail throughout the year we expect the headwind to be -7% on reported revenue. "We are pleased with our start to 2015 and are on track to make further progress during the year." Referring to the Q1 performance, CEO Olivier Bohuon said: "We are pleased with our start to 2015 and are on track to make further progress during the year. "In particular, we increased Q1 revenue by 22% across the Emerging Markets and delivered 9% growth in Sports Medicine Joint Repair. We completed the integration of ArthroCare and the expected benefits of our strong combined sports medicine portfolio are starting to come through. "In Reconstruction, strong sales of our JOURNEY II Knee System drove 3% growth in US Knee Implants, and, through our actions, we delivered an improved Advanced Wound Care performance." Other highlights: · Strong 9% revenue growth in Sports Medicine Joint Repair, particularly in the US, reflects the continued strengthening of our franchise following the acquisition of ArthroCare · JOURNEY◊ II Total Knee System continues to perform very well, driving 3% US Knee Implant revenue growth · Advanced Wound Care revenue performance improving, up 9% · Continued momentum in Emerging Markets with 22% revenue growth. Latin American presence further strengthened with distributor acquisition in Colombia

Smith & Nephew has been raised to 'buy' from 'neutral' at Goldman Sachs on Monday due to improving fundamentals and under-appreciated strategic value. Goldman also increased its target price on the stock, up to 1300p from 1200p. The bank said Smith & Nephew's stock has been a notable under-performer despite solid FY14 results, with sentiment driven largely by questions on whether the company is still a likely acquisition target. "We continue to believe that further consolidation in orthopaedics - with Smith & Nephew being acquired by a larger player - makes strategic sense, though recognise the multiple hurdles to a potential transaction," said Goldman. The bank expects 2015 to mark an important turning point for the company. "We expect organic top-line growth to re-accelerate to around 5% per year versus the 2009-14 average of below 3% as Smith & Nephew benefits from ongoing utilisation recovery in the US, and addresses some of the recent causes of underperformance in the wound business," said Goldman. It added that it also sees meaningful opportunities for margin expansion "driven by integration of Arthrocare and the $120m efficiency program announced in 2014."

Interesting to see Matt Earl (The Dark Destroyer)as gone long on the stock here. hes the chap who alerted everyone to his TUNG short and as a fantastic record. Taken from his Blog. Heres what he says........ .Wednesday, 4 March 2015 Smith & Nephew (SN/) ... coldwater morning I've bought a wodge of Smith & Nephew (SN/ LN) at 1140p/shr and an 1100 put. Yesterday's move by Stryker (SYK US), in announcing a $2 billion extension to its authorised buy back scheme, seems to me to be a mere attempt to pour cold water over S&N's potential purchase price. And so I reckon that suggests a bid could be imminent. North of 1350p/shr would be satisfactory. No doubt we will hear more from Matt.
