Re: Agilent to aquire Tektronix to dominate test and measurement market.
Quaking on the sidelines should be test and measurement (T&M) company Tektronix (NYSE: TEK). Although debt-free and with $252 million in cash, Tektronix is not the gorilla in T&M -- Agilent is, and it is in fighting shape, with a clear focus on the $40 billion T&M marketplace.
