NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 6, 2012) - The rapidly growing demand for Apple's devices have helped make the company the largest U.S. company ever with a stock market valuation of $623.52 billion. As a result of company's high share price investors looking to profit from the company's success have looked to Apple's chip suppliers. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Semiconductor Industry and provides equity research on Avago Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: AVGO) and Maxim Integrated Products Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM).

"The bets [investors] will take on stocks are -- is somebody going to gain share or should they get out of a stock if they think they're going to lose share in future devices," Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley said. "What creates some confusion is that, based on where companies are in the supply chain, they recognize revenue at different dates."

Although no release date is officially set for the iPhone 5, recent invitations sent out by Apple to an event in San Francisco on Sept. 12 have hinted to be the launch for the new-generation iPhone. The company is also widely rumored to be working on a smaller version of their popular iPad tablet.
