Top Five Small-Cap Stocks

The company reported that its earnings for the second quarter of 2008 surged 95%, driven by strong revenue growth. Boosted by strong demand for its high-speed serial protocol solutions used in digital video and other products, total revenue for the quarter climbed 32% to $40.7 million, vs. $30.8 million in the year-ago quarter.

Net income for the quarter increased to $4.4 million, or 16 cents a share, from $2.26 million, or 8 cents a share, in the second quarter of 2007. The company expanded its ultra mobility solutions by launching two new USB switches that support USB High Speed capability and combine USB High Speed and audio signals for new cell phones and MP3 players.

Looking ahead, management expects revenue for the third quarter to be between $38.5 million and $40.7 million, with gross margin expected to be in the range of 36% to 37%. In addition, the company expects its interest income to be $1.4 million. However, weak demand for semiconductors, higher stock option expense, and a highly competitive market could restrict Pericom Semiconductor's future growth.

Our quantitative rating is based on a variety of historical fundamental and pricing data and represents our opinion of a stock's risk-adjusted performance relative to other stocks.

However, the rating does not incorporate all of the factors that can alter a stock's performance. For example, it doesn't always factor in recent corporate or industry events that could affect the stock price, nor does it include recent technology developments and competitive dynamics that may affect the company.

For those reasons, we believe that a rating alone cannot tell the whole story and that it should be part of an investor's overall research.
