Companies like Brocade, Lexmark or Broadcom are all in the mind of traders as possibilities for a takeover in the tech space.

Najarian is also seeing some interesting options action in Palm , which may present some interesting investment opportunities before the end of the year. For the full analysis, check out the video!
