    By Reuben Brewer - February 19, 2013 | Tickers: MCHP, STM, TSM, UMC

    Microchip Technologies (NASDAQ: MCHP) recently released quarterly earnings. The company's CEO made the bold statement that, “ We believe the December quarter was the bottom of this cycle for Microchip...” If that's the case, Microchip could be a buy, but who else is worth looking at?

    You can draw a pretty nice correlation between watching birds and watching stocks.  From a distance watching birds can be quite entertaining (just ask my cat), sometimes they soar majestically and then there are those that mistake the window for who knows what.  Stocks can act in much the same way, flying high after one earnings report and seemingly hitting the window the next.  Like their feathered friends, quite the more »
