Another old timer still checking in this board on occasion. ADI seems more sensitive to the ebb & flow of world economics than company performance. I've been looking for a major acquisition for years but have seen only small technology buys. A couple of product line sales have nicely focused the company but the purpose remains to be seen.
You're right about that, ADI seems to be doing just a tad better than the S&P 500 and has pretty much followed the same motions. We'll see what happens before and after the earnings report. It being tech season and all, I'd love to see ADI hit the $40s again and raise the dividend. With all the technology innovations in autos, smart homes, and smartphones, I can't imagine being disappointed with ADI.
