As Qualcomm board finds it's unsolicited Boadcom bid underscores it's value. NXP shareholders are feeling the same. We now have a new activist joining Elliott.

NXP shareholder Ramius to reject Qualcomm's buyout offer.

(Reuters) - NXP Semiconductors NV ( NXPI.O) shareholder Ramius Advisors LLC said on Tuesday it would reject chipmaker Qualcomm Inc’s ( QCOM.O) $38 billion bid for the company, joining activist investor Elliott Management Corp.

You received a increased 127.50 NXPI bid today. Chances are this might be it IMO. This also increases the chances this completed deal scuttles the Qualcomm/Broadcom deal. There still a lot of regulatory hurdles to pass yet for this to be a completed deal. This could take quite some time for this to be a completed deal IMO.
