That price has to have factored in the Q3 results, surely we wont see it dip below £9!?

June 2022

Trauma and orthopaedic equipment provider Smith & Nephew’s shares are trading “35% below their peak”, the bank said, partly due to the impact of Covid-19 on hospital activity, while its balance sheet is “only modestly geared at 1.6x EBITDA”.

RBC said a consortium of buyers might opt to divest the company's wound care business for a partial return, but with such a hefty price tag, the asset would be likely to come back to the public markets in future.

“A re-IPO could be the potential exit route for PE,” it said.

Might be worth looking at what the CEO does.. ?

His large sales at £12.74 and £12.78 now look very astute.

5 different CEO's in 10 years, eh

A rating of 16 X forward looks more than fair for SN. in a post ZIRP world.
The market might see it differently, but that's how it looks to me.

2010 seems to be the peak year with a trading profit of 969k and a margin of 24.4% compared to 2022 with 901k trading profit and a margin of 17.2%. Rupert Soames did a good job of sorting out Serco so hopefully he can make a difference now he is chairman here. By mid 2014 share price was £11 despite profits reducing from 2010 onwards.

Laurence, part of the issue is arguably their main competitors growing stronger
v SN over the last decade. This may account for some of SN's weaker metrics.

While a bid can't be ruled out, it has been mentioned as a takeover candidate for decades.

If you go back 10 years, this was a high margin business with low gearing and
a prodigious cash generator. Those bullish on SN may say that's now reflected in
the current share price, however circa 2013, at approx £8 plus a share you were
buying at the time a great business.

How are margins stable?, trading profit margin registered a hefty fall at the H1 to

For years SN had trading profit margins in excess of 20%, for a few years around 24/25%.

Margins began a multi year decline around 2015/16 (from memory)
and despite multiple CEO's since, each with a new refreshed strategy
to improve business performance, results have arguably been sadly lacking.

Margin compression leading to reduced free cash flow is central to the bearish case on SN.

Too many of those needing our product - in particular hips in the UK - having operations delayed - once twice or more times by the medics who have abandoned the Hippocratic Oath and are holding the NHS to ransom and condemning too many of the mainly elderly to ongoing pain which could be relieved by surgery.

Results - Significant number of possible beneficiaries pass over in pain before they can receive an operation so no longer potential beneficiaries - fall in usage reduces S&N revenue and cash flow = fall in share price - takeover potential and yet another British company crosses the ocean reducing GB plc's revenue and tax base.

Not yet low enough (imo) to attract a bid - Could easily need to drop another 10%+ or so.;

unless share price were to move up 10% or more then v v unlikely any rns. in any case i think its a passive stake build. any offer is likely going to have to be over 15/16 quid here and its not a level the board will accept at this point. next year i think that that price will be more acceptable. not necessarily because the share price will be much lower at that time (i dont think they go much below 10 maybe to 950 but if they do then 8 is quite prob in that case) but the longer the share price is lower than the more pressure the board will be under to accept a price around 15/16. personally think its still a lot of money to pay inc of all debt so its only the americans that could be interested.
