    More interesting tidbits from Deutsche Bank's upgrade of Tenet Healthcare (THC +2.1%): Analyst Darren Lehrich (who spoke with management) says THC did not rule out "large-scale M&A (acquiring other investor-owned chains)," fueling some speculation about a deal for Health Management Associates (HMA +0.8%). A nice thought perhaps, but Lehrich says THC noted its recent strategy of "divesting rural assets," something HMA has a lot of.

The offer of "$7.25 is not going to be enough to bring the Tenet board to the table," one observer says.
