Analyst(s): Gerald Van Hoy


Semiconductor lead times fell until mid-March, and then began to rise. The semiconductor industry should see year-over-year growth in 2012 as it recovers from an inventory correction. We expect our inventory index to return to a normal range in 2Q12, but it could still be at the high end of normal.
