Industrial technology firm Smiths Group has spent most of the past year offloading different businesses but the rumour doing the rounds in the City today was it could soon change tack. On a quiet Friday, the hearsay was that the FTSE 100 company has its eye on Accelerate Diagnostics, a little-known US medical technology firm worth $1.3 billion (£1 billion) on Nasdaq. The Arizona-based company is working towards commercialising technology which helps to diagnose infectious diseases sooner. Its shares rose 5% yesterday against a falling market with trading volumes much higher than normal. Although Smiths’ name is in the frame for a potential tilt, larger US groups have a head-start on it, sources said. Frontrunners for Accelerate are said to be Thermo Fisher Scientific and Boston Scientific — both are much larger and have far more firepower than Smiths, whose operations range from energy services to specialist medical devices. It has sold several non-core business over the past year to buoy the balance sheet. After recent falls, Accelerate’s shares are now changing hands for only $23 a pop. Gossips said Accelerate and its directors, who control a large chunk of the company, would hold out for at least $35 a share. Smiths and Accelerate said they do not comment on speculation. Shares in Smiths were down 10.15p to 1553p, tracking UK stocks lower as investors digested the Barcelona terror attack and the increasingly chaotic nature of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Telegraph market report: .....Elsewhere, forecast-beating half-year results lifted engineering firm Smiths to the top of the leaderboard, up 45p to £16.01. Operating profit rose 27pc to £277m boosted by cost cuts and growth in its detection unit. The group also maintained its full-year outlook. Following the upbeat results, Credit Suisse increased its price target from £16 to £17.40, adding its investment case “remains attractive”.

Stifel analysts described the results as “very strong” and better than expected. “Smiths says that the outlook for the year is unchanged, but we think that this is conservative,” they wrote in a note to clients. “There is clear evidence of both operational and strategic progress here.” HTTPS://www.ft.com/content/953fc3d6-106f-11e7-b030-768954394623
