10 Stocks With Special Dividend Potential

8. Micrel Inc. (MCRL - Get Report) is based in San Jose, Calif. and operates as Micrel Semiconductor, manufacturing and marketing integrated circuits, including analog and power semiconductors, Ethernet switch and physical layer transceiver circuits. The stock is rated a B (Good) by TheStreet Ratings.

The company reported first-quarter net income of $9.7 million, or 16 cents a share, for the first quarter, a six-fold increase over the first quarter of 2009, when Micrel was suffering the effects of a major decline in IT spending amid the economic crisis.

Micrel pays a regular quarterly dividend of 3.5 cents a share, good for a yield of 1.33% based on Friday's closing price of $10.49.

Thomas Weisel Partners analyst Tore Svanberg rates the shares "Overweight," roughly the equivalent of a "Buy" rating, saying: "Micrel's bookings momentum remains healthy, especially for new products." Svanberg's 12-month price target for the shares is $16, which would represent 53% appreciation from Friday's close.
