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 »
