    Buy out?


    The question is, CSCO or HPQ?

    • forget HPQ, they already acquired 3PAR...I think Apple would be the most likely, as crazy as this sounds but they sit on $50B cash equivalents and don't need to acquire another hardware company, they don't pay a dividend and said they are looking at strategic investments. That would make the most sense to me as they are innovative enough and could use the cloud computing technology.

    • I know its a bit tired to walk out the "Buy Out" Rumors.

      F5 has been rumored to be a buy out target in '08 & '09.

      If there is going to be an offer, it must be hostile.

      Thats is the only explanation I can see for all of this price and volume action.

      If we see an 8K that somebody has bought 10% of the company that would clinch it.

      Enough shares have traded to make that possible.
