Provides a vital service to some very big tech companies. It tests and verifies the computer chips that control just about everything these days

When you use a smartphone, tablet, computer or even a vehicle, you just expect it to work. But you probably don’t consider how the manufacturer made sure it would.

Whether you’re talking about a phone’s graphics display or a car's adaptive cruise control, the company can’t just start selling it and hope for the best.

So the better tested your devices are, the more reliable they will be when it comes time to use them!

For some things, vigorous testing may not be necessary.
If your phone decides to buffer for an extra three seconds when you try to watch episodes of The Office, that's not a terrible problem.

But if your car freezes up on the road because of a glitch in its onboard computer, you could end up in the hospital!

I'm sure you can see why AMKR's services are so important. Especially in today's environment, where technology is such a big part of nearly every facet of our lives.

And when I saw the kind of activity that typically happens before a buyout deal is announced — I immediately thought about something that happened last week.

After an epic run that sent Tesla Inc.’s (TSLA) stock from below $300 to more than $900 per share, the electric car company created 2.7 million new shares and sold them into the market.
This transaction raised $2 billion that the company can now use for whatever it wants — including takeovers. So my team and have been watching for clues as to where TSLA may spend that money.
And today, it looks like AMKR could Tesla’s big buyout!

It would make sense for TSLA to buy out AMKR. It could use the company's technology to test the most important components of Tesla’s autonomous driving systems. That way, TSLA can offer a safer, more comprehensive system than any of its competitors.
Talk about a competitive advantage!

Evidence indicates that someone is building a big AMKR position in the options market, hiding his or her investment from the public.
That kind of trade would make perfect sense if someone got wind that TSLA had approached AMKR to make a buyout offer.

What kind of buyout offer would AMKR's management team accept.

Over the past year, shares of AMKR have traded for roughly 34 times the company's expected profits. That's a reasonable multiple given AMKR's growth rate and important place in the tech industry.
A buyout offer would certainly need to come in line with this metric to get management's approval.
