FBR Capital upgrades Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXIM) from Market Perform to Outperform. Raises PT from $22 to $29.

FBR analyst says, "Thursday, Maxim reported upside results and guidance, and provided another data point that the chip sector is likely to see a still-very profitable "soft landing" in 4Q10 and 1Q11 as tight supply conditions normalize. As such, we are upgrading shares to Outperform. Firms like Maxim, TI (NYSE: TXN), and Broadcom (Nasdaq: BRCM) exemplify that the industry is growing revenues beyond 2008 pre-recession levels, and at much higher profitability levels than ever before achieved (and with share buybacks, dividends) as firms mature and deliver shareholder value."
