Weak results and/or guidance (I, II, III, IV) from SanDisk (SNDK -13.4%), Freescale (FSL -7.9%), Lattice Semi (LSCC -9.4%), and Altera (ALTR -6.5%) is producing a selloff in chip stocks (SOXX -1.2%), which had been rallying on evidence of rebounding demand. Among the hardest hit (aside from the guilty parties): OVTI -3.9%. SWKS -3.9%. MU -3.7%. CRUS -3.1%.

    thank you for massively overselling tech stocks. You are creating a perfect investment entry point that we haven't seen since October.

    Perhaps just the start of a larger market sell-off for the sell in May and go away effect for 2012.

    Bingo!
    Any sign of weakness and it's "No shares for you until October".
    What's interesting is that if you pulled your money out in late March then you wait for this. As the stocks are smashed to bits, you pick up pieces here and there. Alpha through over-reactions.
