Those who read the tea leaves would argue that six multi-billion buyouts in a week is a powerful suggestion of a broad market/economic top:

We can now add another massive deal to the list: this morning Qualcomm announced it would buy NXP Semiconductors NV for about $47 billion, including debt, as it seeks to expand the reach of its chips from phones to cars. The equity value of the deal is $37.88 billion.
