Life Technologies keeps rising on takeover rumor

The stock price at Carlsbad-based Life Technologies (Nasdaq: LIFE) jumped to record-breaking heights on Wednesday, propelled by reports that the world's largest medical equipment maker was considering buying the company.

Life's price rose from $62.31 to $64.44 after the Reuters news agency reported that Thermo Fisher Scientific (NYSE: TMO) was weighing a bid on the company, which is rumored to be on the auction block.

At one point, the stock price hit $65.84, its highest point since its founding in 1999.

The consensus among analysts is that the company will report a 4.7 percent year-to-year rise in quarterly earnings per share when it releases its financial statements on Monday.
