I would enjoy seeing a buyout, for sure! But I'm not savvy on the specific components each has and needs for Ethernet and carrier.--And WHO would benefit most from a buyout. Vitesse has boasted uniqueness in power usage, synchronization, and reliability with security, particulary with its design wins over the last three years. These are the talking points of the Company, right?.
The reality will be in next quarter's sales, predictions, and investor confidence for Q4 and 2015. I will hold steadfastly at this point... Whether it's realization of sales, or buyout, I believe VTSS will hit $6.00 by November. So any ideas: Which parent company would most benefit from a buyout?

Friends, Vitesse makes two products better than anyone else in the industry: VeriTime and INTELLISEC!!
others like Symmetricom and Microsemi offer Timing solutions but Vitesse helps their approach work better also!!!
This makes us SWITCH KING, TIMING KING, SECURITY KING!!!!!
Profits? they are coming! as installation of VeriT began in mid 2012 or so, Intellisec was born 2013 but we can rest assured these products are in the plumbing pipes of most installations through out the world!! for sure buyers of the companies IPO believed strongly in the potential of these products.
Oh! by the way, VeriT and Intellisec are critical for IoT also...
I wish you guys the best and hope that Vitesse can make some money for you.
But be realistic
"...or maybe INTC will just buy VTSS?"
INTC buying some old fashioned data buffer maker?
Tell me what Vitesse have and Intel have not?
I tell you what Intel have: PROFIT!
Are you telling me that Brocade, Broadcom, Cisco
do not have their hardware designers teams
creating ASICS, FPGA, Custom Components?
For their own use and for their customers?
They have all kinds of power management features
fitting exactly to their system needs.
If something is high volume and high margin
that belongs to their design teams.
Vitesse can get some crumbles like couple sockets
for low volume, low margin components.
"Vitesse doesn't even have now their own technology."
you are clueless.
"Just wait for Intel going into IoT with their super foundries,
they will eat Vitesse alive."
...or maybe INTC will just buy VTSS?
Can we call you #$%$"?
What vitesse switches do better than the competition(brocade,marvell,broadcom, amcc...) is LOWER POWER, VERITIME and perhaps our greatest weapon ,INTELLISEC!!!!!
"The constraints on the data center switch market have been lifted, according to Seamus Crehan, president of Crehan Research. Supply uncertainty has been removed and customers have been given extra confidence by the influx of 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet data center switches and line cards with much lower prices. “As these factors eased and we moved into the seasonally stronger second quarter, the data center Ethernet switch market rebounded strongly," said Crehan.
In the last quarter sales of 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet data center switches increased by one million ports. Cisco enjoyed much of the growth, gaining market share with its Nexus portfolio of data center switches, according to Crehan Research, which forecast a strong migration to higher Ethernet speeds as the price of switches drops significantly. Investors in new servers, such as Intel’s Grantley-based machines, are likely to demand 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters to provide the supporting network structure, according to Crehan."
Keep in mind Cisco is Vitesse #1 customer! we been providing SWITCHES to Cisco for quite sometime, RICHARD.
You got to be kidding.
Those companies "Brocade, Broadcom, Cisco" and couple of others
are doing nothing else but switches, switches, switches..
The best in the world.
Vitesse doesn't even have now their own technology.
Just wait for Intel going into IoT with their super foundries,
they will eat Vitesse alive.

Then tell me about sells and profits...
$6 by November does not cut it
If not split then what?
doubling P/E? how?
I would love to have Lou behind the wheel...
Tell me what they can do better than Brocade, Broadcom, Cisco.
So far it is nothing, plain simple nothing...
Am I to believe Richard is expecting great things from Vitesse? was our detractor friend a closet lover of the company all these years?
If the companies plans of making IoT, Storage, Small cell and others more SECURE and better Synchronized go as planned! a 3:2 would not surprise me within 3 years. Security breach announcements are happening on a regular basis! Vitesse must be having fun selling products.
Welcome to the winning side Richard!!!! lol
As many know, a fair amount of those who hold Vitesse shares, including myself, were dealt a 20:1 reverse split a few years ago. We LOST a huge amount of share numbers for the sake of the company's endeavor to look attractive on the nasdaq, as well as to look more favorable to institutions while at the $5 buck status. This price was short-lived because VTSS could not show true profit, quarter after quarter. Plus it was dealing with its debt ( AND its reputation in court due to the back-dating scandal)...One would hope now that things are finally changing...but those who have held out long term like myself are never really sure!
Anything LESS than $5.00 after the next cc will be unacceptable, IMO. --If Vitesse is all it continues to claim to be, and if we have "traction," and products that no one else has...... Why in the WORLD would it not shoot past its undervalued 5 bucks and start shaking the tech word?! The moment we all hear the words "net profit," I believe Vitesse stock will soar. If that happens at the next report to investors (early November), $6.00 is not unrealistic at all. Anything less I would deem as undervalued and unrealistic-- particularly to those who have weathered this dreary journey for so long.

If you or others believe the target price is $4.35, or anything LESS than $5.00, I say go invest elsewhere. If Vitesse is all it continues to claim, and if we have "traction," and products that no one else has...... Why in the WORLD would it not shoot past its undervalued 5 bucks and start shaking the tech word???
Come on Martin, pull out your whip and get cracking!
