    According to "There's no free lunch" Theory

    There are many speculative things here. I think we know that IDCC has put itself up for sell. We know that Google has been approached and Samsung has been asked to consider a bid also. We can speculate that Apple has their eyes on this process and perhaps others do to.

    When it comes to valuing a company, well this is once again speculative, but it has many analytically identifiable component to it. Especially when a market price of a nortel has recently been identified. Valuing the patents will also give an estimate of what the patents pending are worth and perhaps even the talent pool of engineers. The cash on hand is straight forward and so is the estimated revenue stream from these patents. So valuing the company is doable, but has subjective attributes.

    Where the compete uncertainty comes from is how much if anything a company will bid and if it will be enough for IDCC to accept. That part is completely in the air.

    But a fair valuation I will stand behind is in fact 116 to 180 per share.
