It does not surprise me (given the articles explanation of yearly trends being off for October) that the numbers are a little more down than one might expect. I am pleasantly surprised that the numbers are not worse given the impact on chip production in Japan and the economy in general. I think we must continue to watch the market and see where it goes. If the holiday season sales hold out maybe it won't be so bad for the IC industry in the long run.

Is it possible to make few categories in Chip market to further isolate who is gainer and who is looser?

@yalanland It's not that bad. As I explain in the article for October sales to be down 20 percent on September sales is not unusual. And, of course, we do not see from these figures how units and average selling prices (ASPs) are performing separately.

This is really bad news. Will this number improve significantly in next quarter because we have seen pretty robust sales during black friday ?
