NEW YORK, February 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Power Integrations, Inc. Research Report

Over the course of Q4 2012, bookings improved moderately for the company. Its
47 cents Q4 EPS beat analysts' estimate of 42 cents, and the revenue came in
at $79.2 million, versus the expected $74 million. After releasing its Q4 2012
earnings results, Power Integrations surged to a nine-month high, with the
stock closing at more than 14 percent on February 5. Uncertain global economic
conditions make it difficult for the company to forecast the demand for 2013,
but Power Integrations is confident that it is well positioned competitively
and strategically. Its balance sheet also remains sound. The company is
continuing to return cash to stockholders through share repurchases and
dividends. In Q1 2013, which the earnings results will be announced on May 1,
the company expects revenue of $76 million to $82 million. The Full Research
Report on Power Integrations, Inc.  - Including full detailed breakdown,

Fairchild Semiconductor International   Research Report

Fairchild Semiconductor, it cannot be said that things are going smooth for
the company as the patent infringement issue may affect its reputation. It's
recently reported Q4 2012 earnings results were not remarkable, as it did not
meet analysts' estimates. The revenue was two percent lower than Q4 2011, as
well as the adjusted earnings. To offset the negative, Fairchild Semiconductor
experienced an improvement in the demand for industrial and appliance
products. The company is also focusing on cutting costs and keeping
inventories slim to minimize the impact of lower sales on its gross margin.
Despite the intellectual property issues, the road ahead looks promising for
Fairchild Semiconductor. The company expects its Q1 2013's revenue, which will
be reported on April 15, to be around $330 million to $350 million, in line
with analysts' expectation of $346 million. Like Power Integrations, Fairchild
Semiconductor is driven by improved bookings. The Full Research Report on

Westlake Chemical Corporation Research Report

Westlake Chemical Corporation is planning to expand and modernize the ethylene
cracking furnaces and recovery section of its ethylene plant in Calvert City,
Kentucky. This expansion will increase their production capacity by 30 percent
and will make use of ethane feedstock instead of propane. Ethane is made from
refined natural gas whereas propane is made from refined crude oil. Because of
the high supply of natural gas in the market, making this shift was a logical
move for Westlake since it is going to reduce the cost of producing ethylene.
 Westlake is a major producer of ethylene in the US, a component of PVC, one
of the most widely used plastics in the world. Other plastic manufacturers are
also riding on the low cost of natural gas, driven by America's shale boom.

Things are also looking good for Albemarle Corporation. The chemical
manufacturer has announced its $30 million project to expand its plant in the
Tyrone Industrial Park. This announcement follows the completion of its $8
million project that doubled the plant's capacity to produce a fertilizer
additive. The company comments that its agricultural operations have been
highly successful, with 60% of its operations in Tyrone dedicated to producing
agricultural chemicals. According to a report by the International Fertilizer
Industry Association, high agricultural commodity prices are stimulating the
demand for fertilizers in North America and other grain-producing regions.

rise at a higher rate in 2013. The Full Research Report on Albemarle
