    Canaccord's Bobby Burleson adds his voice to those who see PC supply chain trends pointing to rebounding demand. Burleson says his checks lead him to believe motherboard and notebook contract manufacturers will post Q1 results better than typical seasonality would imply, and sees this as a positive for chip stocks in general. He likes ADI, FCS, and IDTI, but is cautious on NVDA due to soft Tegra sales.

    FBR Capital reiterates an Outperform rating and $18 price target on Fairchild Semiconductor (FCS +2.5%), believing the company will get a boost from the cyclical recovery in semiconductors, and that Apple is becoming a more important part of its total revenue stream - “another positive as Fairchild is increasingly viewed as a smartphone play."

    Fairchild Semiconductor (FCS +2.9%) moves up on positive comments out of FBR Capital. The firm says channel checks indicate business is starting to rebound solidly following the Chinese New Year and global inventory de-stocking. It raises its price target for the shares to $18 from $16.

    More on Linear Technology's (LLTC) FQ1 report: Though FQ1 EPS missed, the analog chipmaker is guiding for FQ2 revenue growth of 4%-8% Q/Q, above a consensus for a 3% increase. As a result, Linear shares are now up 8% AH. Rising in sympathy: MXIM +2.1%. ADI +2.2%. TXN +2.2%. FCS +2.3%. (PR)

    Taiwanese distributors tell DigiTimes that while pricing for analog chips is steady, overall demand will be flat in seasonally strong Q4, as weak orders from the notebook, tablet, TV, and camera markets offsets strong smartphone and ultrabook demand. Several analog chipmakers have slashed their Q3 guidance.

    Microchip (MCHP -4.4%) is selling off after yesterday's FQ2 warning, and is leading a few other analog and mixed-signal chipmakers to underperform the NASDAQ. FCS -4.1%. VSH -1.4%. LLTC -1.4%. ISIL -0.9%. ADI -0.7%.

    Fairchild Semiconductor (FCS +9%) stages a stunning reversal after opening down over 7% this morning on disappointing Q3 results and dismal FY11 follow-on guidance. Earnings were flat on an overall decline in revenue, and margins took a hit on lower factory loadings and start-up costs. Despite it all, the stock rallied out of the gate on heavy buying as investors appear to be playing into a continuation off a bounce near its 52-week low hit last Tuesday.
