The SOA Blog - What Is Up with BEA?

Is this company for sale or not? Does anyone want it?

The SOABlog

Is this company for sale or not? Does anyone want it? The latest report is that it is not for sale and its stock has been downgraded. So it took a little hit today (about 2%), and is holding steady with an OK market cap of $4.5 billion and a P/E ratio of 31.99. Modest for the tech industry.

Bottom-line is the stock has gone nowhere for five years now, and the sharks are circling in the SOA space pioneered by BEA. Big sharks like IBM and Oracle, and smaller sharks like TIBCO and Software AG/WebMethods. All sharks, though.
