A home run hitter in technology. When they get a good chipset or good solution, the stock tends to take off. If they strike out a couple of times, it sags quite badly. Right now, there is a general compression of PE multiples for the technology group. A solid company, but you have to live with volatility.

Very well positioned. Would stay with this company because of its access to Digital Light Processing (DLP) and the mobile phone business. Could easily go into the high $30's if the market settles down.

The group is kind of in the cyclical side and it is lagging. Doesn’t expect it to be affected much by a bear in the market. Had a higher low.

Large cap company, is fairly cheap. High end, well run company. Prefect time to get in, if looking for a long term investment.

Fairly diversified company. One concern is that they have benefited tremendously over the last few years from the wireless industry. 10% of their semiconductor manufacturing has gone to Nokia (NOK-N). Have had to outsource their business so don't make as much money as if they did it themselves. Ownable but would like it a little bit lower.

Likes this company as a long-term holding. Not a bad time to take a position. A great company.

(A Top Pick July 13/04. Down 2%.) Still likes. Still suffering from inventories in the semi-conductor supply chain. Well positioned in some of their products. Likes their DLP technology in television and they are the only supplier of DLP chips.

Has had a good move. Widely diversed in the types of chips they sell. Valuation isn't too bad. Would put more money into industrial types of companies rather than technology. Keep it on a short leash.

Forming a base, but bases tend to take a long time to form. May recently have had a slight breakout.

Have a lot of unique devices that sell at higher margins. Probably a good buy at this point.

It is a great company. However, it has been doing poorly, and it will continue this down trend because semi-conductor is too high.

A clear leader. Stock has been under pressure because of the wireless side. Inventories are high. Trading at a low multiple now.

Trading at around 18 X next year's earnings. Has an excellent set of products but their main exposure is cell phones and their biggest customer is Nokia.
