Tomorrow's Outlook in Today's Market - Research Report on Church & Dwight Co., Inc., the Clorox Company, Micron Technology, Inc., Cypress Semiconductor Corporation and MasterCard Incorporated

NEW YORK, February 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting Church & Dwight Co., Inc. (NYSE:CHD), The Clorox Company (NYSE:CLX), Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU), Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:CY) and MasterCard Incorporated (NYSE:MA). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.

Church & Dwight Co., Inc. Research Report

Analysts' bull outlook towards Church & Dwight seems to be consistent. The parent company of brands, such as Arm & Hammer, Oxiclean and Trojan has been showing upward trends in revenue growth and dividend that is said to be annually increasing by 40 percent. Although the company's debt level increased in 2012, Church & Dwight's recent acquisition of Avid Health Inc. may significantly help the company expand its market and boost its revenue. According to Zacks Equity Research, Church & Dwight's new asset may help the company gain a market share in one of the fastest growing segments of the vitamin/mineral/supplement (VMS) business. Avid Health is the market leader in VMS gummies, and its sales are reported to have tripled over the last three years.

The Clorox Company Research Report

The importance of expanding a business portfolio seems to be one of the best decisions for an optimistic and forward-looking story, and Clorox' story is probably one of the most celebrated today. As an industry leader, the bull stance towards Clorox is well-deserved as the company has been posting average yearly returns of 12.5% since 1968. For a stock that has risen by 89% in the last decade, there may be more to the centennial celebration of Clorox this year. Just like Church & Dwight, Clorox is also acquiring two companies, Aplicare, Inc. and Health Link, to expand their infection control product line for the healthcare industry.

Micron Technology, Inc. Research Report

Micron, in particular, saw its stock price jump by leaps and bounds after hitting rock bottom amid a mega-lawsuit filed by Rambus concerning the popular DDR (double data rate) memory chip, which is found in every computer. In addition, they have landed a spot in the iPhone 5 with their acquisition of Japanese memory supplier Elpida. However, fourth quarter sales came weaker than expected as PC sales continue slumping due to the rising popularity of tablets. It is expected, though, that the company would be able to offset the drop in PC sales with higher-margin products for servers. The Street rates Micron as "hold" with a $9 price target.

Cypress Semiconductor Corporation Research Report

Cypress' shares surged more than 2 per cent after announcing fourth-quarter 2012 loss at a smaller rate than projected by analysts. It declared revenues of $180.3 million, less 11.2 percent sequentially and 25.6 percent year over year, as demand in all segments slows down. Motley Fool says the company is set to stage a turnaround after the spinoff of its Cypress Envirosystems and the acquisition of Ramtron. In addition, structural changes aimed to lower operating expenses and improve efficiency were implemented. A recent purchase of about $100,000 from the Cypress CFO helped boost the stock 2.5 percent.

MasterCard Incorporated Research Report

MasterCard is probably one of the top performers, if not the best, among the companies listed under the consumer financial services industry. The world's second largest payment company reported 9.2 billion transactions in Q4, a hefty 20% increase, which pushed its quarter revenue by 10% to $1.9 billion. MasterCard reported a total revenue increase of 10% to reach $7.4 billion or $22.04 earnings per diluted share for the year-ended.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
