Blocked a shipping co merger in 2014

You could make the same argument for CFIUS - its doing unprecedented shit with Broadcom / Qualcomm

The other reason there is a spread is if Broadcom wins the proxy fight for QCOM then steps away from NXPI bid

There is a 0% chance QCOM steps away even if they lose the proxy fight. Check the docs, they're locked in here, and this is the classic arb queer paranoia I'm talking about.

In theory mofcom could block, but after like 12 other regulatory agencies approved it, the chances are pretty remote.

This is probably the best stock you could possibly buy right now

If deal goes through (it almost certainly will): you make 10% in <1 month

If deal gets blocked by China (it almost certainly won't): stock trades down initially and then rips higher when the big boys snap it up from the faggot arbs

Okay now let's compate Marvell and Qualcomm.

Qualcomm literally does 2/3rds of its revs in China and is considered a model corporate citizen there. Sure their management team is full of dumb stubborn faggots but ultimately they will do whatever China asks to get this deal done. Because they have to.

That Qualcomm will ultimately accede to Mofcom's ask (whatever it ends up being) because

1) Qualcomm does so much business in China and has to remain in their good graces

2) Qualcomm is a dead dog without NXPI and they know it (despite being dumb stupid stubborn faggots)

The biggest NXPI shareholders such as Elliott have signed irrevocable tenders for their shares - they are 100% locked into the $127.50 deal price (though if the deal breaks they won't be too upset since they think the stock is worth more on a standalone basis). NXPI holders want this done so they can take their money and move on - at this point the shareholder base is mostly arbs who are choking on it.

Qualcomm shareholders are fed up with management because they have no grand strategy moving forward. The NXPI acquisition is massively accretive and immediately so. Without NXPI, Qualcomm is only mobile phones and lawsuits - their "backup plan" is a stock buyback. Shareholders want this deal done so they can actually have a viable business going forward.

When you say "most" you're talking about Elliott and other big funds who ran a very public campaign that NXPI was worth more than the $110/share Qualcomm was offering. Then Qualcomm bumped it up to $127.50 and those big funds signed an irrevocable tender, meaning they are locked into the deal. On the NXPI side, the deal is done.

I 100% have no inside info, but in a sense all stock market investing is "gambling."

Put it this way: if the market is pricing in a 10% chance of a deal getting done, and you think there's a 90% chance of the deal getting done, is that a gamble you'd want to take?

That was a hypothetical example. IDK what the exact %s are but it's actually not too much different from what I stated.

But you can look at history, other worldwide approvals, and just plain logic to see that there is an overwhelming probability China approves this. Not only that, even if the deal did break, it's very likely the stock would trade higher from here after an initial shakeout. The only reason it's as low as it is is that arbs took way too much risk in this name and are feeling the pain. It's a market structure issue.

Another way of putting this is the efficient market theory is horseshit.

This headline reads much worse than the reality; if you saw Faber on CNBC this morning and/or saw recent stories on M&A blogs, this is a timing issue rather than a regulatory issue.

The deal's still getting done and the stock is still a screaming buy here.

I don't want to be an asshole but on March 7 when you initially wrote your OP, the stock was trading at $124, for a risk free oafish spread of 3%

It is now sub 113, for an 11% spread. You've lost 8% in a risk free trade that would have gotten you 3% in gains

Now obviously the calculus for new money is different at $113. You're looking at a risk free oafish spread of 11%. That seems interesting as the downside from here seems limited for NXPI on a standalone basis as at $113 it trades at sub 14x P/E

I'm not a merger arb guy but my friends in the space tell me it is all about entry combined with risk/reward. A 3% reward wasn't sufficient, even with signficant leverage boosting returns

Imagine being 10:1 levered trying to squeeze out a 30% return on that 3% spread. The move down would have blown you up. At 10:1 leverage on that 11% spread would get you a 110% return - that sounds a lot sexier

Oh absolutely, I got anally ravaged from my initial OP. That said, the risk/reward has only gotten more attractive here, and anyone with free capital should be buying. Also, if you're levering up these trades 10:1, you pretty much deserve whatever you get.

Right, which is another of way of spouting efficient market theory horseshit. When the thesis hasn't changed yet the risk/reward has improved markedly is exactly when you should be loading up

Any thoughts?

Thinking about putting a substantial amount down on this tomorrow morning. Putting aside the buyout (which would be a quick ~20% gain), I like this stock. So even if it fell through, itís not the end of the world.

Bought a position just now around 105.70.

If buyout goes through looks like it will be about 20% gain by July.

If not, I like th stock anyways. And they will be owed 2b I believe.

Seems like a calculated, sensible risk here.

March 7 stock was at $124. Closed today at $92.81

That's a 25% loss in 4.5 months. Friends don't let friends do merger arbitrage

For what it's worth, I just nibbled on it at $92.50

I think they do $8 of EPS in 2019. 15x that is a $120 stock.

Downside they'll do $7 and get 12x so $84

30% upside / 10% downside for a 3:1 risk/reward

Clear catalysts upcoming: $5B in buybacks funded in part by the QCOM breakup fee + an analyst day. Activist investors could also come in given management has been on the beach for the past 2 years
