It is unfortunate that the management of companies like NXP have to deal with this (if it is not their own doing!) instead of focusing on developing products that the industries need. I have seen some of NXP's products in LED lighting and my impression was that the company is on the right track to some good. I wonder if NXP's private equity holders are getting impatient on the wait to see some returns! There are many Semi companies setting on piles of cash so time is right to make an acquisition of NXP. But I don't know if they will get a bargain, we are talking about a company with a good portfolio. MP Divakar

The theory of "pump&dancing" makes sense. The fitting of NXP on Intel, Broadcom or Qualcomm is very poor. If we talk about TI, Frescale, Microchip, Infineon or Atmel the history would be another.

NXP itself isn't doing the pumping. After all the trouble they go to to keep their business operations above-board and not run afoul of the SEC, they wouldn't risk it.

They should track down all the fraudsters who manipulate the market and sell stock during such periods.

I never knew this company has gone low like this. NXP used to be strong

Has anyone seen the second series of Wall Street (Oliver Stone)? All these rumors remind me of that movie for some reason.
