Cramer's Technology TAKEOVER LIST

Cramer said many tech stocks could be takeover candidates. He said these fit the profile, but that doesn't mean they get bought. Look for profitable and battered stocks or where they are down on glitches; and fit a hole for a larger company. He also said not to avoid a company that may have had a near-term miss, as long as it would be a strategic play for other larger companies. Cramer noted that there are far too many technology companies and he could envision waves of mergers in the sector. Business Objects (BOBJ) was booted as was Symantec (SYMC) off of the lists. Here is the list:

Broadcom (BRCM)
Western Digital (WDC)
Wind River (WIND)
Websense (WBSN)
BEA Systems (BEAS)
Tibco (TIBX)
Filenet (FILE)
Avid Tech (AVID)
ActivIdentity Corp. (ACTI)
