Apple's Chip Suppliers Will Look to Benefit From Record Breaking Sales of iPhone 5

Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on Texas Instruments and TriQuint Semiconductor

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Apple's chip suppliers have benefited from the immense popularity of the company and their products in 2012. In August, Apple's valuation of $623.52 billion made it the largest U.S. Company ever surpassing Microsoft. The recently released iPhone 5 set a new record for opening weekend sales, with sales topping 5 million units. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Semiconductor Industry and provides equity research on Texas Instruments Inc. (NASDAQ: TXN) and TriQuint Semiconductor (NASDAQ: TQNT).

While sales of 5 million iPhones during its debut weekend fell short of analysts' estimates, it was largely in part to supply issues. "While the supply issues for the iPhone 5 since launch are concerning in terms of the company's ability to fully meet demand in December, we are staying with our 49 million unit estimate for the holiday quarter," said Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster.

Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley also expects China Mobile, the world's largest carrier, to launch its first iPhone on its network in early January, just in time for the Chinese New Year in February.
