An acquisition would be worth considering a year or two ago. And I think it would have been perhaps Intel, Qualcomm, or TI trying to buy Marvell given the low P/E ratio, healthy income stream, and no debt.

Is there any technical/logical reason for Marvell to buy EZchip? Is there a strategic technology or synergy that I am missing that would make sense? I am curious as to why they would do this.

Interesting when analysts make suggestions. Business is not just numbers. Otherwise AOL and Time Warner would not have broken. Marvel better grow organically than risk all these gambles.
