Merrill Lynch Lists Top Semiconductor Buyout Candidates

According to Barron's Tech Trader Blog, Merrill Lynch's Joe Osha lists the top 10 semiconductor buyout candidates following news of a bidding war for Freescale (NYSE: FSL). According to the blog, Osha said, "Given the number of companies in our coverage universe still tolerating capital structures that don’t make sense relative to the industry’s prospects, we think that additional transactions are a possibility."

Osha's top ten buyout candidates are Intersil (Nasdaq: ISIL), Linear Technology (Nasdaq: LLTC), Silicon Labs (Nasdaq: SLAB), Xilinx (Nasdaq: XLNX), Analog Devices (NYSE: ADI), IDT (Nasdaq: IDTI), LSI Logic (NYSE: LSI), Advanced Analogic Tech (Nasdaq: AATI), Microchip (Nasdaq: MCHP) and Netlogic (Nasdaq: NETL).
