Demand for Electronic Devices Skyrockets -- Can the Semiconductor Manufacturers Keep Up?

Note to Editors: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by The Bedford Report.

TORONTO--(Marketwire - August 27, 2010) -  The Bedford Report is looking at the Semiconductor - Broad Line Industry, and has issued Analyst Reports on Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC), Maxim Integrated Products Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM), Avago Technologies Limited (NASDAQ: AVGO), & NXP Semiconductors NV (NASDAQ: NXPI)

After a poor start to 2009 prompted companies to reduce investment and cut production capabilities, resurgence in microchip demand in 2010 has left these companies unable to meet all demand for microchips. Although performance in this industry is expected to be strong, inability to increase production may limit the upside companies see in this market as the microchip manufacturers are already operating at 96% of capacity. Even with investment in the semiconductor industry expected to increase by 84% this year, any increases in microchip production won't be realized for many months.
