XLNX Gains On Takeover Speculation
As mentioned above, Xilinx is having a strong day in the market today as takeover speculation starts to make its rounds again. The idea here is that Qualcomm (QCOM) is interested in taking the company over. However, there's no assurance from either side of the coin that this is going to happen, nor a suggested price.
The truth is that speculative trades and investments are incredibly high risk. While this may be creating a bit of an opportunity, XLNX could fall just as quickly as it rose. So, if you're going to trade on this news, make sure that you trade with caution.
