Wonder how you come up with that.. ADI is usually tracking right with MXIM and LLTC, look at the chart. The fact that this time, in the recent days, ADI has held better then MXIM or LLTC suggests that it's likely to fall harder in the next few days to come. Notice that ADI's P/E is the highest of this group. But if market continues selling all these are headed lower. I don't see any reason to buy now. INTC, DELL, CSCO, and many big techs are in correction. March is historically a sell period in the markets.
