Added a small amount. Has a look of sub 14, perhaps.

Just looking at how the share price is behaving, I'm wondering is news imminent here?..

All speculation on my part.. if a deal is confirmed along the lines outlined in the FT, I would expect SN to briefly dip Below 14. Gearing up the balance sheet also makes SN. Less attractive as a potential acquisition target, so that also has to be factored in. Medium to longer term the share price would then depend on whether measures to reignite growth are successful, or not. The recent modest FY dividend rise may also indicate an acquisition is around the corner.

Had a read of the conference call transcript, where the CEO makes it crystal clear they are assessing potential acquisitions. Does not necessarily mean the FT story is accurate, however would not rule it out.

Jack, how would that be funded. It could not be all debt surely?. With the 500 USD net debt, it would leave SN. With 4 billion of net debt, very approx.

Nuvasive NUVA are a buy with Charles Schwab which is encouraging.

Smith & Nephew was the biggest faller on the FTSE 100 this morning with shares down more than four per cent on reports it is in talks to buy US spine technology Nuvasive in a $3bn (£2.32bn) deal. Shares fell 4.39 per cent to 1,448p today, having closed on Friday at 1,515p. The Financial Times reported the potential deal on Friday after markets closed, sending Nuvasive’s share price up 25 per cent in after hours trading.

Bought a few back at 14.52. If the acquisition reports this morning are accurate, SN. may be available lower down, as the price mentioned looks on the steep side. Just imv only.

I would say hold and watch this space. Olivier was a waste of space. Namal has brought in a strong leadership with particular emphasis on commercial and operations. Exciting times ahead for this great British company and if it does go wrong I would expect take over bid rumours for some on its franchises which will only push up the share price some more. Buy back when share price dips again!

As such, the success of its portfolio will depend on the competitive profile of key, individual products in our view (which we believe looks strong) and how effective the new commercial structure is at promoting those products," he said. M&A seems to be a focus of the new strategic shift, he added, with plenty of balance sheet capacity, having been "fairly inactive in M&A relative to its peers". Looks like new CE is getting to grips - future M&A seems certain.

Any views folks?, I sold mine at 1487, was not overly impressed tbh. Might be missing something in fairness.

2019 OutlookOur 2019 guidance for further improvement in underlying performance at the top and bottom line is an important step in realising our medium-term ambition to outgrow our markets.In terms of revenue, we expect our underlying growth to be in the range of 2.5% to 3.5% in 2019. On a reported basis this equates to a range of around 1.8% to 2.8% at exchange rates prevailing on 1 February 2019 and including the effect of the Ceterix acquisition.We expect 2019 trading profit margin to be in the range of 22.8% to 23.2%, a further 40-80bps improvement over 2018, excluding the one-off 50bps legal settlement benefit.The tax rate on trading results for 2019 is expected to be in the range 19% to 21%, subject to any material changes to tax law, or other one-off items.

Looks like good support at just about 1400. I'm hoping they continue to rise as we approach results day to about 1500 before pulling back down towards 1450. I think results will be mediocre but won't cause any upset.

Bought a few more SN. Under 1433. Unsure how the market will react so it's a small position, would have liked it closer to £13-13.50, which may be available if the update disappoints.

The recent Stryker results show what can be achieved with a decent CEO. Think there is a case to me made for selling wound care myself.
