The firm thinks the stock will rise 25% if its acquisition by Halliburton closes, and fall only 9%-14% in the medium term if the deal falls through. BMO now sees an 80% chance of the deal closing, up from 70% previously.

08:54 EDTSTMMaxim could be bidder for Fairchild, says Citi
Citi analyst Atif Malik views Maxim Integrated (MXIM) as a potential acquirer Fairchild Semiconductor (FCS). Bloomberg on October 13 reported that Fairchild was seeking advice for a potential sale, and listed potential acquirers as STMicroelectronics (STM), Infineon (IFNNY) and ON Semiconductor (ON). Bids from STM and ON seem unlikely, but Infineon and Maxim could be potential acquirers of Fairchild, Malik tells investors in a research note. In a bull case scenario, Fairchild's buyout value could reach $25 per share, the analyst contends. Fairchild closed yesterday at $17.76. Malik's peer at Citi, analyst Christopher Danely, argued today in research note that Maxim Integrated (MXIM) is unlikely to get acquired despite reports of interest from Analog Devices (ADI) and Texas Instruments (TXN). Danely views Xilinx (XLNX) as a potential takeout target, potentially for Qualcomm (QCOM).

Investors searching for less risky arbitrage deals may instead take a look at Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK.A, BRK.B) offer for Precision Castparts (PCP), argues the publication. Reference Link
