Outfit that Helps us Walk could Have an Even Healthier Future as more New Hips and Knees Are Wanted

Hello Share Gatherers. This old punter is lucky in still being pretty nippy in the walking department, but a look around your neighbourhood will show you an increasing number of older folks have difficulty getting around. That’s including with there a huge backlog in the replacement of knees and hips and here’s a company that will benefit from this worrying situation.


Smith & Nephew’s new CEO better learn from his predecessor what not to do

A little under three years ago, I first wrote about Smith & Nephew (SN.), which “designs and makes technology that takes the limits off living, and we help healthcare professionals to achieve the same goal”.

Hip and Knee Delays Hit Smith & Nephew, but the Share Price Is Due a Rally
