    Qualcomm Reports Weak Chipset Guidance

    Qualcomm (QCOM) expects its MSM (Mobile Station Modem) shipments to fall by 50 million to 55 million units due to lost modem orders for Apple’s (AAPL) new iPhones. Looking at the low MSM shipments, we expect Qualcomm’s chipset revenues to fall 16% sequentially and YoY (year-over-year) to $3.9 billion in the first quarter of fiscal  2019. Qualcomm expects the chipset operating margin to fall to 13%–15% in the first quarter from 17% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 as the benefits from the higher ASP (average selling price) from Chinese handset makers fades.

    Fears of peak iPhone rattle Asian Apple suppliers

    TAIPEI/SEOUL (Reuters) - Shares in Asian suppliers and assemblers for Apple Inc fell on Tuesday after several component makers warned of weaker than expected results, leading some market watchers to call the peak for iPhones in several key markets. Following a poor forecast earlier this month, analysts and investors voiced concern over the state of Apple's business, contributing to growing worries that iPhone sales were stagnating and could hurt suppliers. Fresh warnings on Monday from screen maker Japan Display Inc, British chipmaker IQE Plc and Lumentum Holdings Inc, the main supplier of the Face ID technology in the latest generation of iPhones, hurt technology stocks in Asia on Tuesday.

    Chipmakers Focus Capital Spending on Advanced Manufacturing

    Intel (INTC) is facing a CPU (central processing unit) supply shortage, which came with an unexpected surge in PC and server CPU demand at a time when it’s transitioning to its 10 nm (nanometer) node. In Intel’s third-quarter earnings call, interim CEO Robert Swan stated that the company repositioned some of its 10 nm capacity to 14 nm capacity to meet customer demand. Despite those efforts, Swan said Intel won’t be able to meet all the demand for its products.

    Is Intel or Advanced Micro Devices a Better Long-Term Investment?

    Intel (INTC) is poised to report strong growth in the second half of the year as PC and server demand picks up. On the other hand, Advanced Micro Devices’ (AMD) earnings are likely to fall in the second half of the year due to GPU (graphics processing unit) weakness. The key highlights of Intel’s latest earnings were the update on its 10 nm node and the health of its data center business in 2019.

    For the fourth quarter, Texas Instruments (TXN) guided its biggest sequential revenue decline since 2012. On its third-quarter earnings call, Dave Pahl, TXN’s head of investor relations, warned that after two years of strong growth, the semiconductor industry might see a potential cyclical downturn. Rafael Lizardi, TXN’s CFO, said it’s not clear whether the weak demand is due to a cyclical downturn or is being influenced by macro trends such as the US-China (FXI) trade war.

    How TSMC Plans to Improve Its Profit Margin in 2019

    In the previous part of the series, we saw that TSMC’s (TSM) gross margin is being impacted by a higher mix of the new 7-nm (nanometer) node and low-margin back-end processing. The gross margin is set to improve as 7-nm matures and the foundry shifts to premium packaging solutions. Another factor pulling down TSMC’s gross margin is the lower utilization rate of the 28-nm node due to faster-than-expected migration to the 7-nm node.

    Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) could make a big technology leap in 2019 from lagging behind Intel (INTC) to overtaking Intel in process technology, which could rebuild customers’ confidence in AMD and help its position against Intel. Even if Intel closes the technology gap with its 10-nm (nanometer) node, it could lose its technology lead until AMD’s foundry partner TSMC (TSM) falls behind in future nodes.
