Because earnings results can be skewed in any quarter, and therefore any year, we showed the change in sales per share for the past 12 reported months through Nov. 6 from the year-earlier 12-month period. We looked at sales per share, rather than raw revenue, because the per-share numbers bake-in any dilution from the issuance of shares as well as the declines in share counts from buybacks.

Forward price-to-earnings ratios have declined for six of the companies, despite the increases in sales and strong stock performance for the semiconductor group.

As always, if you see any companies listed here that interest you, it's important to do your own research, preferably with the help of your broker or investment adviser, to form your own opinion about the viability of its business over the next 10 to 20 years.
