Hi Peter - the latest update to the Cowan LRA forecasting model's expectation for 2011's semi sales growth (based upon May's sales number posted by the WSTS) likewise indicated a drop to 6.7 percent from last month's prediction of 8.0 percent.
Although not as "strong" a drop compared to Diesen's latest prognostication quoted above, namely a 5 percent to 3 percent decrease, directionally both trends are the same.
