Qualcomm shoots down Broadcom's $103 billion takeover offer

The bid "significantly undervalues Qualcomm relative to the company's leadership position in mobile technology and our future growth prospects", Paul Jacobs, chairman and son of Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs, said in a statement. Buying out Qualcomm would allow it to quickly realize that goal.

"After a comprehensive review, conducted in consultation with our financial and legal advisors, the board has concluded that Broadcom's proposal dramatically undervalues Qualcomm and comes with significant regulatory uncertainty", Horton said.

"Qualcomm, headquartered in San Diego, California, expressed that it would assess the proposition in an offer to seek after the technique, which is to the greatest advantage of the investors of Qualcomm". Apparently, it is considering raising its bid, but also wants to submit its own selection of directors for Qualcomm's board.

Aly Raisman says she was sexually abused by USA national team doctor
Clubs are now "required to report child abuse or neglect, including sexual misconduct, to proper authorities, including the U.S. He was in a position of power, actually named the national medical coordinator for USA Gymnastics up until the summer of 2015.

That was a not-so-veiled threat to pursue a hostile takeover if necessary.

Qualcomm could further strengthen its position by closing its proposed $39 billion acquisition of automotive chip leader NXP Semiconductors NV. The board has not made any official statements, but has allegedly met on Sunday to discuss the offer. Tan has suggested he would quickly settle.

Canaccord Genuity analyst Mike Walkley wrote, "We believe Broadcom is likely to increase its bid".

Nintendo Switch Introduces Hulu As Its First Video Streaming App
Today, Nintendo made the announcement that Hulu would be the first major player in the field to bring its content to the Switch . This is despite the fact that the Nintendo Switch is a touchscreen device, and Hulu has used a touchscreen interface before.

The bid takes advantage of Qualcomm's weakened position after a year marred by conflicts with Apple Inc. over its patent royalty fees and global regulators alleging anticompetitive business practices.

QCOM shares traded as high as $80 just a few years ago, so it makes sense that the company wouldn't be ecstatic with a $70 takeover offer.

NXP shares have been trading above Qualcomm's bid price, as many NXP shareholders, including hedge fund Elliott Management Corp., have been holding out for a better price.

Jerry Jones thinks Roger Goodell lied about Ezekiel Elliott
However, OTL's sources said that not only does Jones want Goodell out, but he also has his own candidate in mind to replace him. According to ESPN , Goodell is furious that his next contract might be performance-based.

Additionally, our math suggests Broadcom has a significant amount of room to play with here (link to our other note today here), and a properly-timed raise to the price (perhaps coincident with more aggressive moves) might easily be plausible.
