"If the deal breaks up ... the stock [still] heads through $110," Cramer said in an exclusive conference call with members of his Action Alerts PLUS club for investors. "I think you win either way."
QCOM offered $110 a share for NXP Semi in October, aiming to add NXPI's expertise in "Internet of Things" applications to QCOM's existing telecommunications business.
"Qualcomm is a cell phone company and NXPI is an 'Internet of Things' company, [and QCOM] needs NXPI," Cramer said. "They need it."
But he added that even if the deal falls apart, "what I think is going to happen is and NXPI is going to go higher. We typically do not hold stocks if they get [takeover] bids. This is the exception, because [NXPI] worth more than the bid."
