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.

Off about 42% this year. Longer term, money will flow back into technology and this company will be at the front of the line.

(Past top pick Mar 26/04. Down 22%.) Still likes it. No reason for it to have sold off. Diversified across a number of industries.

There are a number of downgrades in the semiconductor industry based on soft orders. The whole sector is facing soggy demand right now.

Very well-positioned in the hand set market. We'll have a 20% hit on earnings once they expense their options. Based on this, their valuation is not as attractive as Intel's. Would be interested at $1/2 lower.

Well-positioned in both HDTV and RFID but these areas are relatively small. To get a pure play, would look at others. Likes it for the long term. Short term, there is some concern on the wireless side.

Trades almost identically with the semiconductor index. The multiple on these stocks is out of whack with the earnings growth. Expects further weakness.

One of the best chip companies around. Has great technology. In the right area. There was a huge run-up in the semiconductor area and there is now a pullback. A good stock for a long-term hold.

Semiconductors are in a bull cycle. Estimates are being revised upwards for capital spending in telecoms, PC sales, handset sales and digital TV. This company should benefit from this.
