    This show of bad faith is an unbecoming look for Qualcomm management. Broadcom will be US domiciled in a few short quarters, so this is just a delay tactic.
    According to info obtained by Bloomberg? Shouldn't the vote be confidential? These are public companies.

    CFIUS investigation... pulleeze.... The funny thing is that Broadcom is a collection of US companies. Stop wasting my tax dollars please.


    Qualcomm management, don't get me started.

    And now the rumor mill is saying Intel is considering a bid for Broadcom.

    Intel ‘Eager For Broadcom To Fail’ So it Can Buy It, Says WSJ - Barron's

    No secret that Intel's foundry business is not exactly a success, so they might be thinking of doing this as a way to try to fill it's fabs. Of course this would be a disaster if Intel bought Broadcom and tried to bring fabrication in house, but maybe Intel thinks otherwise.

    QCOM back down to $60 AH. I have a feeling the drama isn't over here - so what's next? Will China try to hold up the NXPI merger? Will activists come in and try again to get QCOM to spin off QTL? Will another large tech company make a move on QCOM? I could see MSFT, GOOGL, or AAPL given how many of these companies have started to roll their own. Lot's of possibilities.

    This is one of the dirtiest battles I have seen in the semiconductor industry, absolutely. Better than reality TV.

    Definitely a dirty battle. It would not surprise me if NXP acquisition is blocked by China in retaliation.

    Latest twist: Paul Jacobs looking to take the company private

    Qualcomm Ex-Chairman Seeks Funding for Buyout, FT Reports - Bloomberg

    I guess that's one way to avoid an activist backlash. Now I wonder... if Qualcomm thought $80/share offered by Broadcom massively undervalued to company, what Jacobs thinks the company is worth. If it's less than what Broadcom offered, he's going to have some explaining to do.
