As far as TXN getting taken over by another company at this point, it doesn't seem there is enough liquidity for that right now.

TI's business model seems flawed. They dumped everything but semiconductor, and then focused on cell phones, and then cell phones became a commodity market.

Once again, they are trying to reinvent the company. With DSP they were aiming a rifle, but with analog circuits it seems more like a shotgun. I would think that when you have myriad products like analog circuits your research and development bill goes up.

I'm thinking that TI needs to merge or acquire something large to get the company focused again.

Like I said, the commoditization of DSP for cell phones seems to have exposed major flaws in their business model.

Stumbled across this a couple of years later and it's interesting how the situation has changed.

TI has made several small acquisitions.
TI has re-invented itself (again) and is driving it's strategy across Embedded Processors (inc DSP) and Analog.

Richardson has been filled with almost free equipment after extremely clever purchases from bankrupt Qimonda.

Looks like the plans have worked out as TI Hoped :-)

The deal, one of the biggest in the industry for years, was described by Citigroup as a "much-needed consolidation" in the highly fragmented analog sector

guardian.co.uk

"fragmented" = healthy business with many participants, jobs, and delivering a wide range of products.

Next we get the usual monopoly along with one world government.

Don't fight the trend.
