LONDON, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Mobile was the key growth driver for the semiconductor industry in 2012. With
more and more users switching to smartphones and tablets from PCs, the trend
is expected to continue in 2013. However, the macro environment remains a
concern for the semiconductor industry. Although economic data released at the
start of this year pointed to a recovery, data released in recent weeks
suggests that the recovery has stalled. Semiconductor stocks ended mostly
higher on Monday, tracking gains in the broad market. Among the major movers
in the sector were STMicroelectronics N.V. (NYSE: STM), Freescale
Semiconductor Ltd. (NYSE: FSL), Vishay Intertechnology Inc. (NYSE: VSH),
Cavium Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), and AU Optronics Corp. (NYSE: AUO). StockCall free
