NEW YORK, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, Investors Alliance announced new research reports highlighting Lamar
Advertising Co. (NASDAQ: LAMR), ValueClick Inc. (NASDAQ: VCLK), Power
Integrations Inc. (NASDAQ: POWI), Fairchild Semiconductor Intl Inc. (NYSE:
FCS) and EnCana Corporation (NYSE: ECA). Today's readers may access these
reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and
analyst ratings - via the links below.

Lamar Advertising Co. Research Report

Lamar Advertising Company has some of the most impressive growth prospects in
the industry and its transition to digital billboards can drive the
sell-side's extreme current-year bottom line growth forecast by 120 percent
and the year-ahead bottom line growth forecast by 263 percent.

Investors are bullish on Lamar because the leading outdoor advertising firm's
industry-level outlook is promising, as it upgrades its ad portfolio
digitally. As digital billboards offer ad space to multiple customers, revenue
per billboard is increased. In August, Lamar announced that it is considering
converting its billboard business into a real estate investment trust, or
REIT. As a REIT, the company can avoid paying corporate level income taxes as
long as it distributes at least 90 percent of its taxable income to
shareholders in the form of dividends. By converting into this new structure,
the company could be valued at a higher multiple of earnings. Looking ahead,
the company sees further gains if it goes beyond analysts' quarterly EPS
estimates. The Full Research Report on Lamar Advertising Co. - including full

ValueClick Inc. Research Report

A company that is also benefiting from the digital boom is ValueClick, Inc.
While Lamar is an outdoor advertising company that is converting to digital
billboards, ValueClick, on the other hand, is a digital marketing services
company and is one of the world's largest and most comprehensive online
marketing services companies. As the cyberspace reaches almost anyone anywhere
in the world, online advertising seems to be the most effective form of
information dissemination. Analysts believe that ValueClick's full suite of
digital media advertising products is likely to become a more competitive
advantage over time. In Q3 2012, ValueClick reported a 26 percent rise in
revenue compared to the same quarter in 2011. Pre-tax income increased 25
percent and the EPS was at 31 cents. The Full Research Report on ValueClick

Power Integrations Inc. Research Report

The outcome is definitely boosting Power Integrations. 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, analyst ratings

Fairchild Semiconductor Intl Inc. 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. Its
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 semiconductor market is an
attractive market due to the growth of electronic devices. It is not quite
surprising that companies are disputing over patent claims. The Full Research

ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at:

EnCana Corporation Research Report

Penn West is the largest oil and gas energy trust in North America and is also
a Canadian royalty trust. This year, the company plans to cut its spending and
lower costs by finding efficiencies and halting land acquisitions. The company
has a leading position in several emerging and established light oil resource
plays as well as many other large scale resource opportunities. For 2013, Penn
West has an approved capital budget of $900 million, with the possibility of
an additional $300 million in the second half of the year. The focus of the
budget is to improve capital efficiencies by focusing capital on projects that
are expected to produce flowing barrel efficiencies in the $35,000 to $40,000
per boe a day. The company also has taken on a more balanced pace of drilling,
planning to peak at approximately 20 rigs in the first quarter of 2013. 90
percent of the base capital budget is planned to be allocated toward light oil
projects. The company expects 2013 average annual production to be around
135,000 to 145,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day. Analysts are optimistic
about Penn West, believing that it will outperform. This bullish assessment is
based on the company's positive long term history and good management, as well
as being oversold and under the trader's radar. The Full Research Report on
