Re: Thanks to all
Innovation is the motor of business, it's really the key factor that represents the difference between a consolidated business having low profit margin and high volumes and a challenging business that  promises high volume and moreover an high profit, because the company which hits the market for first can hold the 100% of market share. The market leader can dictate the price and this is the reason for why the business based on innovation is very profitable.

>> Agreed, high gain margin means higher risk , it's a unwritten law of the market.

High profit margin to be more precise. That is what they mean by innovation. It is risky but the reward is always great.

>>  As the opposite, if a company builds a component that is innovative and impacts the market very strong, the return on investment will be immediately huge , for software it may take more time to have a similar return.

That could be true especially in components. ADI has held the top position in converters becuase most of the original products relied on these components. Also, another point is that hardware barrier is higher because the person buying from you does not have the risk margin where it can try one API and if does not work, it will try another in the next hour. Hardware takes planning.

@goafrit2: that's a weakeness of hardware business and a strength of the software business. As the opposite, if a company builds a component that is innovative and impacts the market very strong, the return on investment will be immediately huge , for software it may take more time to have a similar return.

>> The evaluation of Wall Street of the companies Linear Tech, Maxim, that you cited, will be better in the near future I guess, because  are doing very well in the hard and extremely competitive semiconductor market.

You need to give a reason why. They have great quarterly earnings and yet nothing is working in the top evaluations. What will change that? I think our challenge is how they look at the growth trajectory of the analog industry.

>> The big semiconductor companies have the strenght to survive to the instability of the market because they have a big range of products

Besides the diversified product offerings, hardware is not that easy to change.If you make a product today, say a phone, you invest in boards, etc. If you change one component, you need to redo everything. Unlike software which a night patch can fix things, hardware is not that easy. You are looking at 18 months to get back to business.

The big semiconductor companies have the strenght to survive to the instability of the market because they have a big range of products and I think that this is important as much as the evaluation at the present moment.

While U.S. still commands so much knowledge base in the circut level, I am worried that in coming years, we will have challenges in the production side since most of the productions are outsourced to Asia where they develop capability and experience on the best practices.

One hopes so as the semiconductor market has not been getting good valuations while the web firms have despite the foundation upon which the web runs depending on the products of the semiconductor industry.
