NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- When it comes to chips, snack food giant Lay's has always reminded consumers that "You can't have just one."This year, I'm realizing that it is also true in the semiconductor industry as the constant battle for chip supremacy unfolds. As enamored as I have become with embattled leader Intel (INTC - Get Report) in anticipation of a resurgence in their business and stock price, I am equally intrigued by the prospects of a few other names, for no other reason than their exposure to tech giants Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG) and Microsoft (MSFT) as these rivals are gearing up for an all-out rumble for the mobile devices market.
