Why is Clemmer still there?

Just wondering why Clemmer is still in charge of this company? Performance appears ordinary since the failed merger. What's the holdup on putting a new CEO and team in place?

No DN layoffs.. what's your next project?

There was no mass layoff in DN as promised. It's cheaper to lay off in bits and pieces. If you don't find something in a couple of months to justify your salary, then good luck. No clarity was provided on what DN folks should focus on beyond end of... —  read more

Little tiny hope for another merger

Someone has been buying millions of Jan 19 options at 120 and 125 strike prices. It’s a very very long shot but hopefully they know something we don’t. Management has kept their mouth shut, either because they have no clue what to do or they are... —  read more

Do they have any real strategy

NXP mgmt has failed to articulate what is their vision now that Q is not happening. Looks like they are clueless headless chickens just running around. Many of the executives talk in the air with no real solid roadmap.
