Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

-- SanDisk: Why have spot prices for NAND Flash held while contract prices softened during the first half of August?  Were investors right to shy away from NAND Flash pure-play SanDisk based on this news or should they pay closer attention to firmer pricing in the spot market?  What is behind the softness in contract pricing, and will the trend likely reverse as we move into September?  Has the dip in SanDisk's price created a buying opportunity?  Is it realistic to expect SanDisk to hit $70 before the year is out?

-- EZchip: Reports indicate spending by telecom companies will increase and that there will be a strong focus toward boosting speed and services in the metro markets.  This outlook is supported by Cisco's report that sales of its market-leading ASR9000 series edge router increased by 69% year-over-year.  Why is this important for the often overlooked semiconductor company, EZchip?  What makes EZchip stand out from other networking chip companies, and why has Cisco standardized on its network processors in its ASR9000 router?  In a recent report, McWilliams' detailed analysis of EZchip's relationship with Cisco clears up the confusion that has kept a lid on EZchip's stock price, and reveals the correlation with Cisco's growing sales of its edge routers that telecom companies are using now to expand bandwidth in the hot metro networking markets.

-- DragonWave: McWilliams predicted nearly two months ago that DragonWave would file a shelf registration to enable it to raise money.  However, the stock sold off when the news of the registration became public over the weekend.  Why might investors be overreacting to this news, and why might it actually indicate things are going very well for DragonWave?

-- Intel and Microsoft: Everyone knows PC sales have been soft, and there is no indication they will recover in the normally hot third quarter.  Is the softness really due to a shift in consumer preferences to tablets or are there other reasons that investors are overlooking?  Are there reasons to believe we will soon see enterprise customers boost PC purchases?  Is there data to support this contention?  What catalyst might lead to this change?  What events might reinvigorate consumer demand for PCs?
