ARM Holdings plc Research Report

ARM, one of the top manufacturers of mobile device processors, is making the most of the declining sales of PCs and the rapidly growing demand for tablets and smartphones. Its shares jumped more than 5 percent with better than expected Q4 numbers across the board, notably the 19 percent rise in revenues to $258.4 million. To top it all off, ARM's board proposed a 35 percent increase in dividend payouts, or roughly 4 cents per share. The company had done so by designing chipsets and providing licenses to manufacturers and buyers like Apple, one of the most popular manufacturers of smartphones and tablets.

MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc. Research Report

MEMC, a developer, manufacturer, and vendor of silicon wafers, beat expectations in its Q4 earnings report by posting narrower losses than expected with just $11.8 million for the quarter, and smaller than last year's $1.48 billion in losses. Its solar power division SunEdison will be the company's bright spot moving forward as the solar power industry is looking to bounce back this year, but its demand/pricing improvement in the semi 300mm wafer segment would be contributory for good growth in 2013. MEMC is expected to break out of the $5.77 level by mid-July with these factors. The company is expected to release its Q1 2013 outlook on March 13.
