Rumours are circulating in Germany that AMD may be snapped up by giant conglomerate Siemens. But AMD has said "it has no knowledge of such a move" and we think it's highly unlikely too. According to the speculation, Siemens is preparing to offer as much as $40 a share for AMD stock. That is double its current share value on the New York trading floors. We think this has to stay at the level of pure speculation. Reports have been surfacing over the last few days that its financial position is better this quarter than it was, but it is hard to see what Siemens would get out of the deal. The speculation may have been started by traders anxious to boost AMD's share price, which has only fluctuated a matter of a few dollars in the last six weeks or so. ®
