Takeover speculation prompted a rally in the Australian-listed shares of Rio Tinto on 7 October 2014, with the stock rising 4.3 per cent to $A60.07. The resources group rebuffed a takeover approach from Glencore in August, and has indicated that it is not holding any merger talks with the commodities trader and miner. However, Glencore CEO Ivan Glasenberg is believed to be keen to pursue a merger with Rio Tinto
