Linear Technology Corporation Research Report

Linear Technology recently hit a new high in its share price at $38.66 per
share with 298,394 shares traded last week. Average volume has been 2.7
million shares over the past 30 days. Meanwhile, the company posted growth in
its Q2 of fiscal 2012 revenue and net income, which however failed to meet
estimates. Revenue came in at $305.3 million, up 10.9 percent from a year ago,
but down 8.9 percent sequentially. Earnings came in at $89 million or 38 cents
per share. In comparison, Wall Street analysts wanted to see revenue of $311.3
million and earnings per share of 40 cents. Management says they experienced
weak bookings for the past two quarters, but expects stronger bookings moving
forward. The Street rates the company as a "buy," citing revenue growth,
increase in net income, solid stock price performance, expanding profit
margins and notable return on equity. The Full Research Report on Linear

Altera Corporation Research Report

Altera entered into an agreement with semiconductor giant Intel late last
month to build its Field Programmable Gate Array, or FPGA, based on Intel's
upcoming 14-nanometer tri-gate implementation of FinFET transistor technology.
Intel's chip is aimed for ultra-high-performance systems for the military,
wireline communications, cloud networking, and computing and storage
applications. The FinFET technology delivers superior levels of scalability,
allowing for much greater performance at the same power budget. To date, Intel
is the only foundry that has implemented this technology. Altera still has its
contract with Taiwan Semiconductor with the latter's 20-nanometer process,
though analysts say the company has been diversifying away from TSMC. The Full

Cirrus Logic, Inc. Research Report

Cirrus Logic has been sued by Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP in behalf of the
purchasers of the semiconductor company's common stock within the period of
July 31, 2012 and October 31, 2012, alleging a series of shortcomings in
certain Cirrus Logic financial documents. The complainants allege that the
defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: the company's
dependence for revenues on its biggest customer, Apple, Inc., was increasing
rather than diminishing; the company's sales growth was declining rather than
increasing; difficulties in its supply chain, and at its vendors, were
increasing Cirrus's costs and diminishing the Company's profit margins; the
launch of several models of Cirrus's new LED lighting had been delayed; and as
a result, Cirrus's increased fiscal 2013 guidance was not attainable. The Full

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