as awful as the *ride* is? NXPI is worth it. I'm long since 16 and this stock is one of the most PLAYED stocks on Nasdaq. It's always pushed down before quarter reporting as was mentioned in another thread here , ALWAYS. What's hard to swallow is how manipulated the market is. NXP is one of the most attractive equities to have, for myriad reasons. I don't agree with another poster here that indicated the sector has been pushed down , irredeemably and won't see over 100 for months. Time will tell.
