Kronos Worldwide (NYSE: KRO) is up today as the company is now back in play for a potential takeover bid.

According to Citi credit analyst James Finnerty, the death of Harold Simmons might have opened the door. Simmons' estate owned most of Contran Corporation, which holds a vast majority of Kronos stock.

One company that might make a run at Kronos is Tronox Limited (Nasdaq: TROX), which recently raised $1.5 billion from a term loan issued last March. Kronos market value is currently around $2.2 billion.

Shares of Kronos are up 8.7 percent.
