Nvidia (NVDA) +0.6% AH after BSN passes on a very questionable rumor Intel (INTC) is thinking of buying the company and making Nvidia chief Jen-Hsun Huang its next CEO. Antitrust regulators probably wouldn't take kindly to Intel buying the world's #1 GPU vendor. BSN: "This rumor should be taken not with a grain of salt, but rather with a whole 18-wheeler truck filled with the said ingredient."

    Nvidia is only 7.8B market cap with 3.5B in cash. I dont know why they havent done it already or at least tried.

    I would love to go to that wedding. I agree it will never happen unless Nvidia is in financial trouble. Nvidia is not. Both are very good companies. I owned both but gave up on NVDA for better opportunities elsewhere.

    A story based on a fortune cookie? Retain the Intel name after the merger? How about a Chinese name to double the stock price? As creative as the author has been - if all true the Govt. would not be on the anti-trust bandwagon at a time when they are trying to woo the Republicans to go along with the proposed tax increase on the high end tax payers.

    Won't be a new outside CEO... the board will go with Ortellini's recommendation (one of his 3 lieutenants). Absurd on that part, but could see this deal happening.
