  • This Semiconductor Manufacturer Looks Good

    By ANUP SINGH - August 11, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, MCHP, TXN

    Microchip Technology (NASDAQ: MCHP) is a leading semiconductor manufacturer with a strong track record of paying dividends and has been increasing shareholder payouts consistently since 2002. It looks like the case for buying this semiconductor company is getting stronger by the day, especially since it released strong first quarter results last month. Let’s take a look at the results.

  • 3 Semiconductor Stocks to Consider Buying

    By David Gould - July 23, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, TXN, XLNX

    If you are bullish on tech industries, it makes sense to back semiconductors, which directly supply the end markets. However, there are a few headwinds in terms of demand that you should keep in mind. Below, I explain what TI (NASDAQ: TXN) and Analog (NASDAQ: ADI) are doing to hedge against this uncertainty.

  • Cantillon Capital Management’s Top Picks for Q3

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, BIDU, KO, GOOG, PCLN

    In mid July, Cantillon Capital Management filed its 13F for the second quarter. These filings disclose many of a fund’s long equity positions in U.S. stocks as of the end of the quarter (so this one covers Cantillon’s holdings from the end of June) and we believe that they can be useful sources of information for investors.

    For one, we’ve found that the most popular small more »

  • Investing in Innovative Chipmakers

    By Phillip Woolgar - July 20, 2013 | Tickers: ALTR, ADI, NVDA

    Often, investing in industries that aren't very interesting allows you to profit from companies that others might not pick up on right away. The semiconductor business is one of those industries, and several companies show tremendous growth potential due to their innovative nature. 

    According to IDC research, the semiconductor growth rate could double by the end of this year. While I think many of the smaller chipmakers could be more »

  • Don’t Buy This Stock Now, but Don’t Ignore It Either

    By Harsh Chauhan - May 25, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, T, TXN

    The going has been tough for Analog Devices (NASDAQ: ADI) this year as the recovery it had hoped for seems to be happening very slowly. The company, which provides analog, mixed-signal, and digital signal processing integrated circuits to various end-markets such as industrial, automotive, communications etc., has disappointed investors with a modest return of around 8% through stock price appreciation.

    This is not surprising when you consider that Analog has more »

  • Recent Acquisitions and Share Buybacks Make this Company Attractive

    By Mike Thiessen - April 28, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, AVGO, FNSR

    Recently, Avago Technologies (NASDAQ: AVGO) attracted the attention of investors with a dual announcement that could hint at big valuation changes ahead. First, the company announced that it would acquire CyOptics, a privately-held Pennsylvania firm that makes a variety of semiconductor chips. This deal would cost Avago roughly $400 million in cash and provide it with an important piece of leverage in a competitive industry.

    Separately, Avago also announced that more »

  • This Tech Stock Is Poised to Move Higher

    By Marshall Hargrave - April 12, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, ARMH, MU

    Micron Technology (NASDAQ: MU) continues to fly. What's more is there could be even more upside to the stock in the coming months. The stock is already up more than 40% year-to-date, but its pending acquisition of Elpida could send the stock even higher. 

    The approval to acquire the assets of bankrupt Elpida is one of Micron's biggest short-term catalysts that could push the stock higher. The addition more »

Outlined below are Cohen and SAC Capital's five largest new additions to their portfolio last quarter.

  • Three High-Dividend Semiconductor Stocks

    By Shas Dey - March 20, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, ISIL, STM

    Income investment is one of the more popular investment styles, and not without reason. The primary focus in this investment style is to invest in stocks that provide a steady dividend income along with a reasonable scope for capital appreciation. However, creating a good income-based portfolio is not as easy as it may appear, because identification of the right stocks to invest in requires a lot more than just looking more »

  • 5 Tech Stocks for Your Income Portfolio

    By Shas Dey - March 8, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, EMR, STX, STM, ERIC

    Out of all investment styles, income investment is one of the most popular, and there are good reasons for its popularity. Income investment focuses on stocks with high dividends. However, it would be folly to go after a stock with high dividends without paying any heed to other metrics like dividend yield ratio, dividend payout ratio and dividend growth rate. A good income portfolio makes sure that it contains stocks more »

Google is still a leader in the search engine business, is a market leader in the internet browser space, its Youtube platform is becoming ever more popular, its operating system Chrome is gaining market share, and Google TV and Google Books were recently launched.  With continuous plans to diversify more »

  • The Key to Success for These 3 Semiconductor Stocks

    By Masam Abbas - February 26, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, LLTC, MU

    Writing on semiconductor companies is a tough job given the many complicated terms encountered that have to be described to general investors looking for high-yielding stocks. The following article briefly discusses the three best stocks in the semiconductor industry.

    Linear Technology Corp. (NASDAQ: LLTC)

    Linear Technology is considered to be a top pick for 2013. The stock is viewed as a core holding exhibiting both defensive (strong cash flow, dividend more »

  • 2 Semiconductor Stocks to Buy, 1 to Hold on Changing Macro Dynamics

    By Masam Abbas - February 26, 2013 | Tickers: ALTR, ADI, XLNX

    For most of last year, investors held out hope for a cyclical recovery in wireless and wireline CapEx with expectations of resurgence in China, LTE handset product cycles reinvigorating developed market capital spending and the insatiable growth in bandwidth consumption forcing network upgrades. Unfortunately, decelerating emerging market GDP and developed market carriers focus more on cash flow than subscriber acquisition acted to push out the investor-anticipated cyclical recovery driving relatively more »

  • This Company’s Recovering Business Makes it Worth a Look

    By Harsh Chauhan - February 25, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, T, JDSU

    The day on which semiconductor player Analog Devices (NASDAQ: ADI) closed in on its 52-week high turned out to be the day when it posted disappointing earnings. The company missed estimates on both top and bottom lines and issued a cloudy forecast for the ongoing quarter. Analog’s revenue estimate of $647 million to $672 million for the current quarter is behind the consensus of $666 million at the mid-point more »

  • Should You Buy These 2 Semiconductor Stocks?

    By David Gould - February 18, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, QCOM, TXN

    The chip market has been facing several headwinds ranging from competitive supply pressure to market transitions. It should thus not be surprising that some stock prices have plummeted while others have soared. Below, I present my take on TI and Analog.

    Texas Instruments (NASDAQ: TXN)

    TI recently released their fourth quarter and full year earnings data. The report revealed that gross profits are on the decline, most likely due to more »

  • A Semiconductor Stock Outperforming Its Fundamental Value?

    By Declan Fallon - February 8, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, BRCM, FCS, TXN

    The November rally has been good for nearly every sector in the market.  Bull economy sensitive sectors, like Consumer Discretionary, have been leading from the front.  But one of the sleeper hit sectors from November has been the semiconductor index.  Semiconductors have been steadily outperforming the Nasdaq 100 for a number months, and show no signs of slowing down.

  • More Tech Stocks for Adults

    By Nate Wooley - February 8, 2013 | Tickers: ADI, GOOG, NVDA, SAP, TSM

    In an earlier column I talked about how tech stocks, and the media that covers them, are still considered up and comers. How there's an expectation that the best technology stocks are the high-risk, high-growth stocks in which the people leading the charge are treated as some form of celebrity. I also took a shot at them for being a bit too full of themselves.
