Corporate Piggy Banks

NO RATINGS
It seems like companies are finally feeling confident enough to break into the piggy banks that they have been hoarding for years now. This should be a good sign for the industry, but according to some of what I have been reading it is a sign of the beginning of the end for the long-running bull market in stocks. Apparently corporations are particularly good at spending money when things that they are spending on are getting expensive.

Does this correspond with an increase in internal R&D spending as well? That would be another sign of this.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
