July data shows some unseasonal strength for MPU, DRAM, and Flash. These guys track close to demand so it is the other products that are seeing (finally) a replenishment of inventory. Don?t think shortages are an issue. We?re expecting -13% now, better news than our January prediction of -17%. ?Susie Inouye, Research Director ? Databeans Inc.
