Richard Suttmeier |

Intersil Corp (ISIL) – ($7.71) has been upgraded to a Buy rating according to ValuEngine with fair value at $7.62, which makes the stock 1.2% overvalued. The ValuEngine one-year price target is $8.16. ValuEngine Profile – “Intersil Corporation is a leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance analog semiconductors. The Company's products address some of the industry's fastest growing markets, such as, flat panel displays, cell phones, other handheld systems, and notebooks. Intersil's product families address power management functions and analog signal processing functions.

Intersil products include ICs for battery management, hot-swap and hot-plug controllers, linear regulators, power sequencers, supervisory ICs, bridge drivers, PWM controllers, switching DC/DC regulators and power MOSFET drivers; optical storage laser diode drivers; DSL line drivers; video and high-performance operational amplifiers; data converters; interface ICs; analog switches and multiplexers; crosspoint switches; voice-over-IP devices; and ICs for military, space and radiation-hardened applications.”

Last week the company reported first quarter EPS at 2 cents a share beating estimates by 10 cents. Revenue was at the low end of guidance due to seasonal weak demand in the consumer segment, which was somewhat offset with strength in computing.

Analysis – The daily chart for ISIL shows rising momentum with the stock below its 21-day, 50-day and 200-day simple moving averages at $7.87, $8.32 and $8.39. My quarterly value level is $7.52 with weekly and semiannual risky levels at $7.98 and $8.16.
