NEW YORK, Oct 26 (Reuters) - The recent rebound in shares of Smart Balance Inc (SMBL.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) could continue as the healthy-food maker, which may be a takeover target, grows its market share, Barron's reported.

The paper said it is "upbeat" about Smart Balance, citing Montgomery Scott analyst Mitch Pinheiro, who has a 12-month stock price target of $11 on the company.

Shares of Smart Balance, which makes low-cholesterol buttery spreads, closed at $6.25 on Friday, up 28 percent from a low earlier this month. However, they have fallen about 42 percent so far this year.

"With its low stock price, Smart Balance also could be snapped up by a larger rival such as ConAgra (CAG.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), Unilever (ULVR.L: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) or Nestle (NESN.VX: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz)," the paper said.
