Wall Street thinks Intel will buy Micron

Diversification
A Wall Street analyst claims that Chipzilla will buy the DRAM maker Micron Technology in a move to diversify its product offerings.

ThinkEquity analyst Krishna Shankar wrote in a note to clients that Intel will make a significant move and acquire MU in order to bring DRAM and NAND technology in-house and sell platform solutions. From Micron's viewpoint, it gives the company the ability to be part of a platform company and extract higher margins from the memory business by selling platform solutions.

Intel will get more things to shove under the bonnet of smartphones and tablets, which may offset the lower price of mobile applications processors versus PC processors. He said that Intel could also design platform processor/memory solutions with lower power, higher performance, smaller form factor.

Micron Technology, which is one of the largest memory chip makers in the world, makes DRAM chips, flash memory chips, and memory modules.
