Down AH yesterday following mixed Q4 results and light Q1 guidance, STMicroelectronics (STM +5.8%) is making new 52-week highs this morning. A 16% Y/Y increase in analog, MEMS, and microcontroller sales could be going over well. On the other hand, Digital (consumer electronics) and Wireless (dominated by ST-Ericsson) respectively fell 18% and 14%. Moreover, ST-Ericsson "anticipates a very significant sequential decrease in net sales" for Q1, and STM expects to spend $300M-$500M to exit the failed basbeband chip JV.
