Here’s What We’re Seeing From MSCC
Microsemi was off to a relatively strong day from the beginning. However, around 2:33, we noticed the beginning of a high-momentum uptrend. At the moment, that trend is continuing in a big way. Currently (2:38), MSCC is trading at $40.05 per share after a gain of $1.79 per share, or 4.68%.
Why It’s Happening
After a brief search for the reason we’re seeing the spike, CNA Finance found reports from Street Insider that a takeover could be in the wings. Of course, an acquisition generally sends the values of stocks skyrocketing. So, with news that MSCC might be a takeover target, the gains are coming.
First and foremost, it’s important to keep in mind that the gains that we are seeing are the result of a rumor. There has been no confirmation from the company that a takeover is being attempted, nor that they are in talks about being acquired at all. With that said, in the short run, I’m expecting to see continued gains in Microsemi Corporation. At the end of the day, the idea that a takeover is coming will likely continue to excite investors.
However, the mid- and long-term view will largely depend on how this story evolves. If we find that MSCC is indeed in the midst of a takeover, this could be a major opportunity for gains.
