    SAP (SAP +0.6%) co-CEO Jim Hagemann Snabe says the German software giant isn't in talks to sell itself, noting that the 30%-plus increase in SAP's share price over the past year makes it a less attractive target. "The best medicine for SAP to stay independent is to stay successful," Snabe says.
