(Market Call Minute.) The chip companies have run up a little. What worries him is that revenue growth really isn’t rising. They are making more money, but it is through higher margin products, which only goes on for so long.

(A top pick Oct 1/13. Up 1.03%. Up 4.71%.) A 10 year chart would show that this had a very big lid on it of about $40. It broke through that and he can see it doubling in the next 3-5 years. Expect there will be a pull back in the next week or so and you can Buy it safely on a pull back.

Chart shows a big symmetrical triangle up to the beginning of this year, followed by a healthy breakout. Looking at a 10 year chart, it shows that the stock has had a bit of a lid in the mid-$30. It has broken out from this price this year. Could be pretty positive over the next few years.

Cheap valuation but if you go through the strata of all the various tech companies, because of the commoditization of the chip and the volatility and the selling price, there are other places he prefers.

It could be a Buy on a technical basis if you are trading that way as it has been bouncing off the 200 day moving average in the last couple of weeks or so. Limited upside potential, possibly into the low $30's. Trading at around 17X earnings, which is a little rich for basically a commodity type company. You could buy here for a Trade but if it breaks down below that 200 day average, he wouldn't hold on for too long.

Very good company and has been around a long time. Becoming more focused but not the kind of company he wants. He wants good growth stocks that have the opportunity to grow for an indefinite period of time. This one tends to be a little more cyclical.

Often considered a proxy for the semiconductor space. The semiconductor market has been consolidating. There have been dramatic improvements in pricing. Expect demand for semiconductors will continue to grow over the next 6 to 12 months. Probably overbought and there will be a point in the next several months to get it at a better price.
