The money that we make in China is short sighted. We collect a lot of money in the short-term but we are required to teach a huge competitor that will wreak our technological edge in the long-term. They have the ability to squash our economy, and they don’t play by the same rules. Wall Street is short sighted. Continue to get professional coaching for your position, and don’t rely on the advise of your executive team. Keep up R&D, but make smaller sure bets. Automotive will not sustain the volumes that MSMs and Modems provide. If you buy NXP, trim the fat on both sides of the business.
