Selling the Phone business was a major direction shift, leaving them with a lot of holes in the new product pipeline. They've lost a lot of the visionary talent that was good at identifying new product opportunities. They are still priced at a premium. They have a hell of a design team so I hate to bet against them, but well executed programs aren't worth anything without good leadership. Sorry, SLABs...

I hear you. Now hear me. They are getting out of that established cell phone market at the right time. Per last CC they have a disruptive technology for the emerging power market area. Remember, they are a mixed signal leader w/ pricing power. <<< They call the shots
Good Luck
