    Why I hope the BCOM attempt to merge with QCOM fails

    Very personal reason, nothing to do with the business merits (mostly). I have been bombarded with calls, every night, wanting to get me to vote on this. I guess I must own QCOM stock somewhere. This is a hyper-aggressive campaign to intimidate stockholders into voting, apparently in BCOM interests, just to stop the calls. So I shut down the calls. In my view, this is not a tactic representative of a high-quality business proposition. It is street-market hustling.

    May they go down in flames.

    Did they call during dinner? I always get those calls during dinner. How do they know? It really is creepy. I own both stocks through the PHLX so I get no calls.

    Traders certainly do not think it will happen:

    This is the battle over 5G which represents the most comprehensive, far reaching network ever to be built. The stakes are literally staggering and I have been following it because of my smallest holding in TMUS. The 5G ecosystem and its off shoots. will be a large market, if not the largest, for the whole semi ecosystem world wide. I hold TSM, AMAT, MU, VSH in the interest of full disclosure. 5G will represent the largest step yet taken to reach singularity with AI/ML becoming the controlling foundation of IOT and almost everything else. The stakes are high for every company for this represents a key part of the most profound change in the history of mankind. Expect the competition in all segments of the coming of AI/ML to be fierce, but hopefully beneficial to all. Wisdom required.
    Sadly, with stakes this high, common sense and decency can easily evaporate. There are always options , but many times egos get in the way.

    Regulations require Qualcomm to provide shareholder information to Broadcom.
