8 Small-Cap Semiconductors With Upside: Analysts

2. Pericom Semiconductor (PSEM), operating in the interconnectivity device supply market, is mainly focused on designing, developing and marketing high-performance integrated circuits and frequency control products used in advanced electronic systems. Its IC products include functions that support the connectivity, timing and signal conditioning of high-speed parallel and serial protocols.

Of the five analysts covering the stock, 80% recommend it as a buy and the remaining rate it a hold. There are no sell ratings on the stock. Data from Bloomberg has analysts forecasting the stock gaining 57.0%, to $15.5, in the upcoming 12 months.

For the 2011 third quarter, net revenue was reported at $39.6 million, increasing 8% from the year-ago quarter. Excluding special items, non-GAAP net income for the quarter stood at $2.5 million, or 10 cents per share.

Notably, the company said that its book-to-bill ratio exceeded 1.0 for the first time in three quarters. Additionally, sales at its distribution channel rose 3% from the prior quarter with the company launching 17 new products across the signal integrity, timing and connectivity product areas.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011 is estimated in the range of $41.5 million to $43.5 million with other income forecast between $400,000 and $700,000 on a GAAP basis, and $600,000 to $900,000 on a non-GAAP basis. Fourth-quarter GAAP gross margins are expected between 33.3% and 35.3%. Besides, with the company's China factory producing 8 million frequency control products units per month, expanding volumes will contribute positively to its earnings in the second half of 2011.
