05:42 EDTJNJ, SYK, SNN, ZMH, MDTMedtronic offer for Smith & Nephew may bring bidding war, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo believes a Medtronic (MDT) takeover offer for Smith & Nephew (SNN) would make strategic and financial sense. However, Wells cautions that Smith & Nephew's "relatively small" share in hip and knee implants could put Medtronic at a competitive disadvantage to larger ortho players Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Zimmer (ZMH). The firm thinks a potential offer from Medtronic may prompt Stryker (SYK) to reconsider Smith & Nephew, potentially resulting in a bidding war.
