Call to the Floor: Brocade

Brocade has landed on many a trader's watch list, as chatter swirls that it would make a great takeover target.

Largely, the speculation began after Cannacord Genuity issued a note suggesting Brocade might be a good fit for a company like Dell.

The thesis was simple. Dell 's recent acquisitions have brought expertise in storage, server and services. The missing piece of the puzzle was networking.

And Voila – you have Brocade.

The Fast Money traders were so intrigued by the speculation that they invited Brocade CEO Michael Klayko to the show and delved further into the matter.

What did they learn?
