Max: Open Table vs. NXP Semiconductors .

David Gardner: And at this point I have to chop the knees out from under NXP Semiconductor, or maybe that's since it's a battle. Maybe that's what Open Table just did to it because in the end, I have more confidence in Open Table and its business, and frankly more knowledge about it. I don't have perfect knowledge of every one of our 140 companies in the Supernova Universe, so I'm always going to kind of favor the ones that I feel like I know a little bit better.

I'm the first to suggest to all of our members, by the way, that you, whoever you are, with your unique background each of us has, should favor the things that make more sense to you. so whether it's our new buy on Odyssey or Phoenix or something that I just recommended in Stock Advisor or Rule Breakers, I'm always going to say to every one of our members that I want to make sure that you believe in what you're doing and as you follow us, if we have three picks for you and you only have money for one, take the one that fits with you, because that's what you're going to learn more about. So returning then to this second round, Open Table (unclear).

Max: All right, Open Table will be in the finals.
