Tensions Boil in Weak DRAM Market

The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on Micron Technology & Rambus

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 24, 2011) - For the makers of memory chips, the level to which they are able to predict fluctuations in demand can spell success or disaster. The industry also remains dogged by lawsuits relating to alleged price fixing. While many top companies have already paid hundreds of millions of dollars to settle past cases, there are still a number of lawsuits that are still pending. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Technology Sector and provides investment research on Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MU) and Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS).

According to DRAMeXchange, a research department of Trendforce, DRAM contract prices for the first half of June indicated a downward trend. Affected by uncertainty over PC demand during 2H11, slow growth in contents per box and weak recovery of European and US economies, DRAMeXchange argues companies are holding conservative attitudes toward replenishing their inventories. From the markets' perspective, raw wafer shortage crisis incurred from the Japan earthquake is officially relieved.

Further litigation in the industry concerning patent infringement has also been a hot issue of late with Rambus Inc. continuing its crusade against many key players within the memory chips industry. Rambus is seeking as much as $12.9 billion from Hynix and Micron over Rambus-designed dynamic random access memory, or RDRAM, chips. Hynix and Micron engaged in "a secret and unlawful conspiracy to kill a revolutionary technology, make billions of dollars and hang onto power," Rambus lawyer Bart Williams told jurors.
