Electronics stocks’ upcoming results are anticipated to reflect the growth opportunities associated with high-performance computing and accelerated deployment of 5G technology. Also, digital automotive is expected to have driven the industry participants’ performance to some extent in the quarter under review.
For instance, strength in key end markets — namely communications, automotive and industrial end markets — aided Amkor Technology’s AMKR top line in third-quarter 2020.
Also, growth opportunities in advanced packaging technologies that target 5G, advanced automotive systems, IoT and high-performance computing aided the results.
However, the COVID-19 outbreak is likely to have impacted the electronics stocks’ performance in the to-be-reported quarter.
