You Have a 300% Profit on This Stock – and a Suitor Lurks

We've seen three dozen of our recommendations turn into "deal stocks." That's what you get when the underlying company ends up as a buyout play - or bolsters its own growth by buying out a significant rival.

And we could be adding another "win" to that list.

Shares of longtime Private Briefing holding NXP Semiconductors NV (Nasdaq: NXPI) soared more than 15% by early afternoon today after the Dutch maker of specialized chips for smartphones and electronic payments was reported to be in merger talks with Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM).

The Wall Street Journal reported the two firms were talking about a deal worth more than $30 billion.

    As a former teacher, I really enjoy your use of "Story Telling". Then after that you move on to the point of the article, wrapping the both together. Marvelous, I read a lot of straight info, which is like marching, marching, marching, which is
    hard to take on a day to day basis. Thank you for giving me a breath of fresh insight. Mildred

      Dear Mildred:

      I missed this first time through, and I'm so, so sorry.

      I love to answer subscribers' notes. Usually I'm good about it, too.

      Guess I'm do for a "prescription upgrade?"


      Warmest regards…

      P.S. My sister Kathy (the middle of three Patalon kids) is a middle-school teacher.

      So I have tremendous respect for your profession.
