There has been a lot of consolidation in the memory business over the last few years - especially DRAM.  The fewer big players left may be able to smooth out some of the boom and bust cycles typically seen in the past.  It''s a maturing industry now.  That's both good news and bad news I think.

I would call the memory industry slot machine model.

This is good news that there is some growth forecast in the industry.  A good sign that the economy may finally be coming back.

Cowan LRA Model's Forecast Expectations For 2013 & 2014

Hi Zewde - the latest run of the Cowan LRA forecasting model (see URL = http://electronics.wesrch.com/paper-details/docx-EL1SE1J5APKCT-latest-cowan-lra-model-s-global-semi-sales-forecast-results-for-2013-and-2014) yielded sales and sales growth expectations for 2013 and 2014 of $304.2 Billion / 4.3 percent and $317.8 Billion / 4.5 percent, respectively. These latest forecast results are based upon Oct 2013's actual sales numbers as gleamed from the WSTS's Oct 2013 HBR, Historical Billings Report, as posted on their website (http://www.wsts.org/).  The latest updated 2013 sales growth of 4.3 percent is slightly less bullish than IHS's prediction of 4.95 percent. Also included in my monthly forecast write-up are other market watchers' "thinking" re. sales growth expectations for 2013 and 2014. Check it out at the above invoked URL.

Seems like just a few years ago Micron and other memory guys were on the ropes. What a crazy industry we are in...

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
