    • Sterne Agee analyst April Scee says it makes more sense that Reckitt Benckiser (OTCPK:RBGLY, OTCPK:RBGPF) will make an offer for Church & Dwight (NYSE:CHD) than Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG).
    • Though the P&G buyout speculation that drove Church & Dwight to a +20% premarket spike yesterday fizzled, there's still some leftover M&A intrigue around the company due to its strong presence in the U.S.
    • CHD +6.73% premarket to $103.51. For its part, Procter & Gamble is down 3% over the last few sessions with more retailers reporting tepid U.S. demand for consumer products.
