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.

In recent news, Intel Corporation made a surprise announcement that it was acquiring McAfee Inc. for a cost of $7.68 billion in an all cash transaction. The offer of $48 a share to shareholders represented a 60% premium over share price at market close prior to the announcement. AMD, which posted a narrow loss in the second quarter, was recently downgraded by analysts at FBR Capital from Outperform to Market Perform.
