NEW YORK, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Inc. (NYSE:GPS), Guess?, Inc. (NYSE:GES), Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU),
Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:CY) and Fortinet Inc. (NASDAQ:
FTNT). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including

The Gap Inc. Research Report

Gap opened its first outlet stores in China in the latter part of 2012, and is
expected to produce tremendous growth like how competitors Abercrombie & Fitch
and high-end retailer Coach have performed in the country with their stores.
In addition, Gap's namesake brand and its higher-priced Banana Republic brand
would easily expand there with a significant lack of competition. In addition,
Trefis predicts that the company's European and Japanese sales could improve
this year, as the European Commission expects a gradual improvement in the
region's economy this year until 2014, while the launch of e-commerce will
help improve sales from the still-recovering Japan. A report from India Times
indicates that Gap is set to open up stores in the Indian subcontinent soon,
as rival retailers H&M and Zara also penetrate the potentially lucrative
market. The country's middle class has been growing steadily for being a
popular outsourcing destination for more than a decade now. The Full Research

Guess?, Inc. Research Report

Guess has seen its Asian business post exponential growth amid a relatively
weak fiscal year. However, its revenues from that market comprise only about
10 percent of Guess' total revenue of $250 million for the previous quarter.
The growth is driven by its aggressive expansion during fiscal Q3 for this
year, opening 21 stores and 45 concession shops, with an additional 40 in its
planning stages. Guess also partnered with a Chinese licensee, positioning
itself in China to fuel long-term growth. Its licensing business has also been
growing while its competitors are struggling in that segment, banking on only
its strong brand recognition to maintain its asset-light high-margin segment.
In addition, the retailer is making a big push into Spain, Germany, Northern
Europe, and Russia over the next five years as the EU reports a positive
economic outlook in that period. The move further diversifies the company away
from the US, and is expected to generate more international sales than local.

Micron Technology, Inc. Research Report

Micron, in particular, saw its stock price jump by leaps and bounds after
hitting rock bottom amid a mega-lawsuit filed by Rambus concerning the popular
DDR (double data rate) memory chip, which is found in every computer. In
addition, they have landed a spot in the iPhone 5 with their acquisition of
Japanese memory supplier Elpida. However, fourth quarter sales came weaker
than expected as PC sales continue slumping due to the rising popularity of
tablets. It is expected, though, that the company would be able to offset the
drop in PC sales with higher-margin products for servers. The Street rates
Micron as "hold" with a $9 price target. The Full Research Report on Micron

Cypress Semiconductor Corporation Research Report

Cypress' shares increased more than 2 per cent after announcing fourth-quarter
2012 loss at a smaller rate than projected by analysts. It declared revenues
of $180.3 million, less 11.2 percent sequentially and 25.6 percent year over
year, as demand in all segments slows down. Motley Fool says the company is
set to stage a turnaround after the spinoff of its Cypress Envirosystems and
the acquisition of Ramtron. In addition, structural changes aimed to lower
operating expenses and improve efficiency were implemented. A recent purchase
of about $100,000 from the Cypress CFO helped increase the stock by 2.5
percent. The Full Research Cypress Semiconductor Corporation - including full

$120.9 million for the same quarter of 2011. Services revenues were also up by
$76.7 million, a 26% improvement compared to the company's figures during the
last quarter of 2011. Analysts have a positive outlook towards the the
software development giant, expecting to exceed their current targets when
they announce their financial results for the second quarter of 2013. The Full
