    5 Billion minimum

    I posted this a week ago. 5 B minimum.

    Technophile wrote a very good outlook from my perspective. However, 85-100 as acceptable took me back. Everything in his post suggested IDCC is a very desired commodity. It has so much more than Nortel did including more patents in the pipeline, some of the top engineers in the business, > 500mil in cash, good profit margins.

    This patent war is serious. The one question I have is what if Google and Intel would have kept bidding? What would the result have been. This time around, people will be more savy, and the stakes will be considerably higher.

    I don't think APPL will lose this battle. They don't want Google and Samsung to get the patents. Meanwhile, QCOM and Intel are obvious rivals. I think Intel is playing for keeps here.

    My projection for some time is double nortel's price. 9B. I think it could go higher. If these companies aren't ready to pay up, I will be quite surprised. I hope we will get a positive surprise. I for one will be happy with a 5B offer, but a little disappointed.

    • Is this the one you were looking for?? People have been one-starring the board derelict, so I upped his star count so you can see it. Your welcome.

    • A couple of months ago, I posted my guess of a $9B purchace price. That's still my best guess.

    • If you only knew...

    • Lind, it's saturday night, you sure spend a lot of time posting/bashing on a stock you have no position in. I can't imagine how much time you spend on stocks you do short. ROFL you think anyone buys your lies? how's that economics class you claim to teach going? please link us to it.

    • Apple doesn't lose w/$76B in cash reserves unless they choose to. They can own it outright or as part of a consortium.

    • If you believe that, then you should mortgage your house, sell your wife and kids, rob a bank, borrow from rich relatives, etc. and put every dime of it into IDCC at these prices. Or did you already do that at $70+?

    • and nothing has changed from this article of Aug 3, the fight between Apple and Samsung is continuing. This is the best quote, from an analyst in Korea:

      “InterDigital has a lot of key patents,” Lee Seung Woo, a Seoul-based analyst at Shinyoung Securities Co., said by telephone. “The fight between Apple and Samsung is getting serious, so if the assets go to Apple, it could be pretty risky for Samsung. To hedge the risk, Samsung could go ahead with bidding, although they may have to pay a big premium.”

      • Lets add the following to the article you posted, from the blog of an IP specialist today:

        What happened is that a passage from my blog post appeared in the Korea Times article, with only minor changes, but was attributed to "a Samsung official" whose name was not disclosed. This is the passage:

        "If Samsung truly believed that Google’s takeover of Motorola Mobility was going to be helpful to the entire Android eco-system at large, it would have waited until that deal was closed before concluding the license agreement with Microsoft," said a Samsung official.

        "Samsung knows it can’t rely on Google. We’ve decided to address Android IP issues on our own."
        -------
        In other words: IP is very relevant, and so is IDCC!

        The MSFT-Samsung deal was made public the same day an article planted in Electronics Weekly.com tried a spin against IDCC. Just wondering who paid for that...
        The title of the article said it all:
        "Great Patent Boom On The Wane

      • I just hope Monday being a new quarter, we'll see IDCC going up....for many reasons....regardless of the rest of the market.....surely there must be some funds that have a good idea that IDCC will be one of the best plays for the entire year...
