10:33 EDTXLNXCiti says Xilinx, not Maxim, likely to be acquired
According to Citi, analog chip maker Maxim Semiconductor (MXIM) probably won't be acquired, despite Bloomberg reports which stated that Texas Instruments (TXN) and Analog Devices (ADI) had held talks about potentially buying the company. The firm sees Xilinx (XLNX) as the only large cap chip maker remaining that has "all of the attributes of a good takeover target." WHAT'S NEW: The only two companies capable of buying Maxim are Texas Instruments and Analog Devices, Citi analyst Christopher Danely wrote in a note to investors today. However, Maxim's valuation is too high for Texas Instruments and the deal would be too big for Analog Devices, the analyst stated. However, Xilinx is a potential takeover target, partly due to its high margins, a size large enough that it could impact an acquirer's profits and its cost cutting opportunities, Danely stated. One potential acquirer of Xilinx is Qualcomm (QCOM), which has suggested that it could be interested in M&A opportunities in the future, the analyst wrote. Despite his belief that Xilinx could be acquired, Danely kept a Neutral rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On October 14, Bloomberg reported that Analog Devices and Maxim were in merger talks. On October 28, the news service reported that Texas Instruments was in talks about buying Maxim. According to Bloomberg, Maxim was working with a bank on a strategic review before it was approached by Analog Devices. Maxim may not want to sell itself unless it receives a large premium, the news service stated. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Maxim was flat near $38.86 per share, while Xilinx gained 1.5% to $47.83.

08:54 EDTXLNXMaxim 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).
08:37 EDTXLNXCiti sees Xilinx, not Maxim, as potential takeout candidate
Citi analyst Christopher Danely says he does not expect Maxim Integrated (MXIM) to get acquired despite reports of interest from Analog Devices (ADI) and Texas Instruments (TXN). Xilinx (XLNX) is the only large-cap semiconductor company left with "all of the attributes of a good takeover target," Danely tells investors in a research note. He believes Xilinx management could be willing sellers at the right price, and points out Qualcomm (QCOM) has a history of doing deals. Xilinx could make a good candidate for Qualcomm, Danely contends.

05:42 EDTXLNXXilinx, IBM announce strategic collaboration
IBM (IBM), and Xilinx (XLNX) announced a multi-year strategic collaboration to enable higher performance and energy-efficient data center applications through Xilinx FPGA-enabled workload acceleration on IBM POWER-based systems. IBM and Xilinx, through a private signed agreement and collaboration through the OpenPOWER Foundation, are teaming to develop open acceleration infrastructures, software and middleware to address emerging applications such as machine learning, network functions virtualization, or NFV, genomics, high performance computing, or HPC, and big data analytics. As part of the IBM and Xilinx strategic collaboration, IBM Systems Group developers will create solution stacks for POWER-based servers, storage and middleware systems with Xilinx FPGA accelerators for data center architectures such as OpenStack, Docker, and Spark. IBM will also develop and qualify Xilinx accelerator boards into IBM Power Systems servers. Xilinx is developing and will release POWER-based versions of its leading software defined SDAccel Development Environment and libraries for the OpenPOWER developer community. Additionally, IBM and Xilinx will continue to further utilize IBM's innovative Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface, or CAPI, to deliver accelerated computing value to its clients. CAPI, a unique feature built into the POWER architecture, provides Xilinx and the technology industry at large with the ability to build tightly integrated, coherent solutions right on top of the POWER architecture.
