And there is no law of nature that says holding firms like Softbank will last for ever.
They also have some vulnerabilities,as does everybody and every individual business,they maybe big,they may have huge backing,but so have others in the past that no longer exist !!

Hardly suprising,it's a cheeky bid while the price is lower than normal,it will go back up and even though as others on here have pointed out,Qualcomm could face an iffy future if things don't go right for them,but it only takes one innovation/idea and their value could rocket..

A case of serial under-valuations.......

Kind of a smart move from Qualcomm, they should sell, but not before raising the sale price.
I say this as Qualcomm's in a pickle at the moment as being completely reliant on the mercy of Samsung and TSMC for wafers, and at set prices. And being mostly reliant on SoftBank's ARM architecture.

Should someone like MediaTek be able to produce SoC's with a decent LTE modem, Qualcomm could see either their market share tank, or their profit margins diminish. And each year this scenario becomes more and more a reality. This means ultimately that Qualcomm's business will hit a plateau at some point, then it will fall/crash.

If the board are good at business, they will inflate the figure and sell the company before they plateau.
