Our top takeover targets

Flush with last year's success, here's our picks for the year ahead.

Summary: In the year ahead we’re keeping an eye on Challenger annuities as Australia’s aging population puts a focus on the nation’s collective retirement savings, and fertiliser producer Nufarm as Chinese demand for Australian crops grows. Investors should watch for a bidding war between Dexus and China Investment corporation for a merger with IOF. 

Key take out: It's a matter of if, not when, car group AP Eagers merges with Automotive Holdings Group (AHG), while international players cannot be ruled out to buy Iress (IRE).
