Semiconductor Stocks Fall as Reports Signal Bearish Outlook

The Paragon Report Provides Stock Research on ARM Holdings and Marvell Technology Group

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 13, 2012) - It has been a tough week for semiconductor companies as recent reports signaled a bearish outlook citing slowing demand in China and Europe. "As we approach June quarter earnings season, we believe semiconductor demand has softened almost across the board," wrote Christopher Danely, J.P. Morgan analyst, in a note to clients. The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Semiconductor Industry and provides equity research on ARM Holdings plc (NASDAQ: ARMH) and Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL).

"It's all macro -- just like last year, and the year before, and the year before," Danely added. "We believe the macroeconomic environment will be the biggest driver of semiconductor stock performance during 2012, just as it was in 2011, and 2010 and 2009."

The European financial crisis combined with a weakening personal computer market has had a significant impact on semiconductor demand. Investors should receive a clearer picture of the state of the industry when semiconductor giant Intel Corp. kicks off the tech earnings season on July 17.
