NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- For quite some time I have liked semiconductor giant Atmel (ATML - Get Report) as a company and a stock. However, the challenge has been getting others to appreciate the value it presents.It seems that for all of the attention semiconductor stocks have enjoyed so far this year -- Qualcomm (QCOM), ARM Holdings (ARMH), Nvidia (NVDA) -- Atmel can't seem to get any love. Is the disrespect deserved?
