Financial times have put some detail around this....... Namal wanted to move listing from UK to US so he could boost his pay (with the company listed in the UK there are restrictions on exec salary). Guessing the board disagreed and he decided to leave. All comes down to money in the end, shame really as I know a lot of people believed in Namal to turn this great company into something greater.

Smith & Nephew"Can anything stop the exodus of FTSE 100 chief executives in 2019? The numbers have now been bolstered to the point where these departing CEOs could almost cobble together an 11-a-side football match as Smith & Nephew's Namal Nawana steps down."Australian Nawana has only been in post for 18 months but has already helped revive the share price with a new strategy."This culminated in re-organising the business into three global franchises: orthopaedics, sports medicine and advanced wound management."The market responded positively to this simplified structure, which reduced duplication of effort and made reporting responsibilities clearer with better accountability."There appears to be a pretty simple reason Nawana is leaving – pay. It became apparent over the summer that the company was looking for ways to increase its head honcho's remuneration with apparent discussions about a move to a US listing to escape an increasing backlash in the UK towards excessive executive pay."The fear will be that this revamp of the business will be derailed by Nawana's departure despite efforts to allay these concerns – with internal candidate Roland Diggelmann stepping up to the top job and Nawana staying to smooth the transition until the end of the year."Diggelmann faces a tricky task of balancing the need for continuity with a likely ambition to bring his own ideas to the role."

Market doesn’t like the fact that Namal Nawana is stepping down and probably doesn’t appreciate the lack of detail accompanying that announcement.Then they’re appointing a non executive as a replacement which strikes one as unusual.

How much of the share price performance is simply FX driven? They report in $ and I suspect price in $ meaning having the £ head to the low 1.20s vs the $ helps them materially - its all extra revenue with no cost against it so falls straight through to the bottom line

re rob topgun. it depends on what you paid for them! its good to take a profit. i get the feeling they may go down just a bit, but, this co seems to be heading to the top and getting bigger and bigger, and so should the price. i suppose they appear expensive, they deserve to be and i reckon there is a lot more mileage to come!

- Medical technology company Smith & Nephew said it had agreed to acquire Switzerland-based provider of optical tracking technology Atracsys Sarl, for an undisclosed sum. Atracsys Sarl's technology was used in computer-assisted surgery and its optical tracking camera would assist Smith & Nephew's digital surgery and robotic ecosystem, the company said. The acquisition was expected to complete during the third quarter of 2019.

Seems to be good support at 1400. A buy between 1400 - 1450 seems like good value at the moment. Looking at releasing some other stock to top up my holding here.
