March 16, 2011

(Top Pick Mar 3/10, Down 4.85%) Are being aquired, but some of the intellectual property is being sold to a third party related to Microsoft, which has cause anti-trust problems. He is willing to hold on to the stock. A lot of his stocks over the years have been taken over, so he just sits and waits.

A hedge fund made an offer Mar 2/10. It’s trading above the offer. Would not be surprised if there were additional offers.

Getting a takeover offer. Thought for years that it would eventually get taken over. They had a lot of the shape of a company that eventually someone would take a run at. It really has not done that well.

Not done well but seems to be turning a corner and are now making money. Deal with Microsofts and the Hewlitts of the world. Leaders in their field in terms of Linux. Balance sheet is in better shape. Have about $1 billion in cash and do over $900 million in revenue.

Likes this company. Over a billion in sales. IBM (IBM-N) has bought into the company. Linux platform makes a lot of sense. Company has been spinning it's wheels for quite awhile. Doesn't like everything they've done. In a good field.

(A Top Pick Jan 23/03. Up 100%.) Market is wondering how the company is going to use the money they raised via a debenture. Loves their alliance with IBM and wouldn't be surprised by an IBM takeover. Too early to tell. Still a Buy.
