Maybe I'm missing something, but if you bought NXPI at $108, how do you stand to lose $8/share? The tender price is $110 so you would be up $2/share. As far as holding onto the shares because "Qualcomm will grow substantially in the auto chip market which NXPI leads.", the share purchase by Qualcomm is for cash. You would have to buy Qualcomm on the open market. You might as well consider buying it now since it is about $17 below its 52-week high. I'm not saying sell your NXPI shares now, but think about owning both companies. If/when the deal goes through, QCOM will be better prepared to move forward, and you will most likely have gotten in at a better price.
