Sorry to hear Xicorbull "passed." Wonder if Jeffbas is still around. When Intersil made the offer for Xicor, I sold my shares on the open market at $15 plus.
After that, I watched Intersil for many years but did not buy. I finally stepped in and bought shares in August of 2013 around $11. It amazed me, they were still paying a very good dividend. ( Almost bought some at $9, but wasn't smart enough to "pull the trigger." ) The company is looking like it will continue to get stronger. Maybe the $20's are not far away. Have you invested at all in the biotechs in the last few years? I've been very fortunate to have been in a couple of "good ones" in that arena.
