Emulex (ELX +14.6%) soars after Bloomberg reports the company has hired Goldman to help find a buyer. Activist investors Elliott Associates and Atlai Capital have been prodding the storage adapter card/switch vendor to sell itself. Archrival QLogic (QLGC +4.7%) has also jumped on the report. Both companies have been struggling to cope with weak server demand.

    I remember that some time ago someone was trying to buy it $12 and they fought not to sell, because the "management" had something better to offer. Now we're at 6-7 and they're looking for a buyer. Gimme a break!
