Hachette, the French media giant that publishes Elle and Woman's Day magazines, said Thursday that media rival Havas was snapping up its shares. The talk that one company was taking aim at another, still viewed as ungentlemanly in France, sent Hachette's stock soaring 12% on the Paris stock exchange. "There is no doubt Havas is buying up" Hachette shares, a Hachette spokesman said. "I would note that Havas has not denied (this)." Havas declined to comment.
