Good comments Tamza. I would like to add that I see lots of hiring that is short term (contractors etc.) not permanent so semi execs are probably seeing that growth not sustainable...Kris

smart phones will level off soon, and the military demand is too; so projected high growths are not sustainable for these several quarters. 3 mo moving averages are (by their nature) a lagging indicator; PC sales WERE strong earlier in the year but ONLY after they fall do we start hearing of reduced forecasts. As Mr Berra said: Forecasting is impossible, especially about the future. Yet we keep paying attention to them ... show me a forecast in the semiconductor industry that has come within 30% ... BTW when shipments are production constrained a company CAN certainly 'forecast' sales in a high-demand capacity-constrained environment.
