More M&A Coming Soon From The Semiconductors? (MXIM)

Notes: Maxim Integrated Products is a $10B diversified semiconductor company. Along with other semis like (CY) and (ATML), it too saw unusual call buying today (plus the 2,200 purchased earlier this month). This type of activity suggests to me there is likely to be another (FSL)/(NXPI) type merger coming soon and it very well could have (CY), (MXIM), or (ATML) involved since they are in the $3B-$10B range (Freescale has a $13B market cap currently). Maxim trades at a P/E ratio of 19.16x (June16 estimates), P/S ratio of 4.27x, and a P/B ratio of 4.56x. Growth is expected to come back to the company in FY16 to the tune of 27.7% earnings growth and 7.6% top line growth. Cash holdings and short-term investments have been hovering around the $1.4B … Read More »

Smart Money Report

AAPL- The 1×2 Aug 22 weekly $97/$100 ratio call spread was put on 10,000 times for a $0.25 debit. Volume was above the open interest in both options. This trade was likely done against a long stock position to leverage the trade without adding any additional shares of stock.
AMC- The 1×2 Dec $22.5/$25 ratio call spread was put on 1,000 times for a $0.15 debit. Volume was above the open interest in the Dec $25 calls. Earnings are due out on 7/30. They’ve only reported two earnings reports, but the stock has moved higher after both. The $25 level has been the ceiling in the stock since March. This is also a good way to leverage an existing long position in the stock (only risking an additional $0.15 to make $2.35).
ATML- 6,000 Nov $9 calls were sold for … Read More »
