(Bloomberg) -- An Indian startup that aims to use artificial intelligence to deliver faster and more personalized customer support for corporate clients is raising $51 million in funding from investors including March Capital Partners and Chiratae Ventures.Uniphore Software Systems Pvt, based in Chennai and Palo Alto, Calif., plans to use the emerging technology to change the labor-intensive business of call centers, displacing workers with machines. Former Cisco Systems Inc. Chief Executive Officer John Chambers’ JC2 Ventures owns about 10% of the startup. Existing backers also include Analog Devices Inc. founder Ray Stata and Infosys Ltd. billionaire co-founder Kris Gopalakrishnan.Umesh Sachdev, 33, founded the company in 2008 with his engineering classmate Ravi Saraogi. They are competing with technology giants like Google, Microsoft Corp. and International Business Machines Corp. as well as at least a dozen AI startups to automate the $350 billion call center industry, helping agents deliver more useful support while decreasing the number of infuriating and ineffectual experiences.“This is one of the largest rounds in an area of deep tech already seeing a lot of investor activity,” CEO Sachdev said in a telephone interview. “It represents the coming of age of conversational AI.”He declined to reveal the startup’s valuation, but said it is “one step away from turning into a unicorn,” the tech industry’s term for a value of $1 billion or more.Voice bots and automated messaging systems are already changing the world of call centers, and experts reckon the majority of human workers will be driven to obsolescence by artificial intelligence. By 2021, about 70% of organizations will integrate AI to assist employee productivity, researcher Gartner Inc forecast earlier this year.Using messaging apps, chatbots and speech-based assistants, so-called conversational artificial intelligence automates communication and delivers personalized experiences. “Virtual agents are gaining ubiquity via smartphones and messaging platforms to support customer care, marketing and employee efficiency,” said Dan Miller, the lead analyst with Saint Paul, Minnesota-based Opus Research.Sachdev estimates that the U.S. alone has 3.9 million call center workers and those numbers will steadily diminish as companies adopt new technologies. “Humans will shift from taking mundane calls to enhancing knowledge and teaching AI what is the good answer and how to resolve issues,” he said.Uniphore will use the funds to hire talent, invest in research and development and accelerate expansion, particularly in its primary market in North America. The startup plans to increase its engineering and development operations to 200 employees in India by the year end, while another 60 will be based in the U.S. and 40 in Europe and Asia Pacific. Its customers include BNP Paribas SA, Genpact Ltd., NTT Data Corp., and PNB MetLife.“Indian entrepreneurs are going from slow-followers to fast-innovators,” said Chambers in an interview earlier this year, explaining why he’s backing Uniphore. “I see a young breed of founders who are hungry for a piece of the future.”To contact the reporter on this story: Saritha Rai in Bangalore at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Peter Elstrom at firstname.lastname@example.org, Edwin ChanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- Semiconductor companies are wincing as consumers around the globe are buying fewer cars amid continuing trade tensions between the U.S. and China.China has been a pain point for the sector as the two countries continue to spar on trade, and chipmakers had braced for slumping demand in the country to dent performance. The automotive sector has emerged as one of the biggest sources of weakness and is now threatening to dampen the chances of a recovery in the latter half of the year.It has so far been an unfortunate year for automakers, as global sales shrank 6.5% from a year earlier in the first quarter of 2019, and 7% in the next three months, according to Bloomberg Intelligence. China led the decline with car sales in the country falling for 12 consecutive months through June, amid slowing economic growth, trade-related turmoil, and a weak consumer demand, exacerbated by newer and stricter emissions rules. With the U.S. and China ratcheting the turmoil up a notch this week, some say the risks of tariffs on auto imports is now higher.Many auto parts suppliers, as well as Ford Motor Co., have reported disappointing results and issued weak forecasts for the year, citing the China slowdown. And now the effect is rippling through the rest of the supply chain, hurting chipmakers and other industrial manufacturers.“China weakness was expected, but in all honesty, we were expecting a trade deal by now,” Piper Jaffray & Co. analyst Harsh Kumar said in an interview. Kumar, who covers semiconductor stocks, said the companies supplying the automotive market were still seeing growth in radar and electrification-related products, while the traditional, gas engine segment is getting hit hard.Most of the automotive chip manufacturers have a larger piece of their business associated with traditional auto, and “that is not doing so well because there isn’t any market share or penetration to be gained; it is simply a units game,” Kumar said, referring to the fewer number of cars being sold.Maxim Integrated Products Inc., which makes chips that are used in various parts of a car including lighting, infotainment and driver assistance systems, said it expected the calendar third quarter to be slow, due to a “soft environment” for automotive production. The company’s battery management systems used in electric vehicles will also have fewer shipments, given the market uncertainty in China, the company said.The concerns were echoed by NXP Semiconductors NV, which makes components that help a car to sense its environment and process that data. Maxim and NXP’s customers include auto suppliers such as Aptiv Plc, Lear Corp. and Visteon Corp. as well as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV. Other chipmakers with substantial auto market exposure include Infineon Technologies AG, Analog Devices Inc., Texas Instruments Inc., and Microchip Technology Inc.Meanwhile, Rockwell Automation Inc., which counts both automotive and semiconductor sectors among its customers, saw both markets decline in the quarter ending June 30.“Overall, the combination of production cuts and reductions in component inventory is having an significant impact,” Morgan Stanley’s Craig Hettenbach, who covers semiconductors, said in an email interview. The analyst said that while the weakness is most pronounced in China, Europe has also been below expectations from the beginning of the year. “There is a lot of focus on when China will provide incentives to stimulate demand, but company and investor expectations for stimulus are pretty low right now,” Hettenbach said.A respite is not expected anytime soon. According to Moody’s, global vehicle sales are expected to fall 3.8% in 2019, amid further weakening demand in China and Western Europe. The latest round of trade war-related tarriffs could make matters even worse.To contact the reporter on this story: Esha Dey in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brad Olesen at firstname.lastname@example.org, Jennifer Bissell-Linsk, Morwenna ConiamFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Tech stocks are having a moment. Investors have shaken off regulatory concerns to propel tech stocks higher, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq index up a whopping 25% year-to-date. Chip stocks are also enjoying a relief rally after US-China trade tensions sparked heavy selling in 4Q18. And in its wake comes the S&P 500, now up 20% since the start of the year. Goldman Sachs isn't immune to this increasingly bullish sentiment. The firm has just released a rash of tech upgrades. Mostly firms reiterate recommendations- so a rating change speaks volumes about how a firm perceives a stock’s outlook (or, indeed, a sector). So which four tech stocks is Goldman Sachs re-evaluating right now? Let’s take a closer look, and see whether the Street agrees with this newly positive outlook… Snap Inc (SNAP)Five-star Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry has just upgraded disappearing photo app Snap. New hyper-realistic augmented-reality filters could lead SNAP to positively surprise in the coming quarters says Terry. His new buy rating comes with a $18 price target- which still only suggests 2% upside potential from current levels. That’s due to SNAP’s better-than-expected earnings results, which sent shares surging over 20%. Revenue growth accelerated (to 48% year-over-year), daily active user (DAU) growth turned sharply positive, Gross Margin expanded nicely, and EBITDA loss narrowed materially. “Our checks with advertisers also lead us to believe that the company’s continued innovation in its ad-stack, particularly in self-serve, should allow Snap to substantially improve monetization of user time spent on the platform over time,” Terry stated.Overall, the Street shows a cautiously optimistic Moderate Buy consensus on SNAP. Out of 22 analysts covering the stock, 9 rate SNAP a buy, 11 a hold and 2 say sell. Meanwhile the average analyst price target stands at $17- indicating 4% downside from current levels. Stitch Fix Inc (SFIX)Online personal shopping service Stitch Fix also gets the Terry thumbs up. The analyst upgraded the fashion stock on July 21 with a $38 price target. Even though shares have already climbed 60% year-to-date, Terry’s price target still indicates upside potential of 39%.Terry wasn’t deterred by SFIX’s slowing active client growth, writing: “we believe product innovation, operational efficiencies, and geographic expansion, combined with the increase in retail store closures (particularly in apparel) represent significant opportunities for further outperformance.” He spies ‘compelling upside potential’ from Stitch’s expansion plans- including the recent UK launch and the new men’s, children’s, and plus-sized offerings. Notably Goldman Sachs isn’t the only firm upgrading SFIX stock. Stifel Nicolaus’ Scott Devitt also notched his rating up to buy on July 22. With a $35 price target, Devitt explained: “We are confident in management’s ability to drive healthy ARPU growth in the intermediate term by continuing to improve keep rates through stronger personalization (Style Shuffle), high-quality client adds, and healthy retention.”Although SFIX shows a Moderate Buy Street consensus, if we look at only the best-performing analysts this consensus shifts to Strong Buy. The top analyst average price target stands at $38.80. Applied Materials (AMAT)Chip-making equipment stock Applied Materials has surged 59% year-to-date. Top Goldman Sachs analyst Toshiya Hari gave the stock a boost on July 22 with his ratings upgrade. He also raised the stock’s price target from $48 to $56 (7% upside potential). And most importantly- he added AMAT to the firm’s Conviction Buy List of top stock picks. The move came thanks to Hari’s increasingly optimistic take on the chip sector as a whole. Hari now forecasts the WFE [wafer fab equipment] market to grow 7% year over year in 2020, up from the previous prior assumption of flat year over year."Not only have the memory producers reduced capex over the last 4 quarters, but they have also made adjustments to their factory utilization rates to combat the on-going challenging environment, and while the memory WFE market is likely to remain weak in 2H19, we now expect fundamentals to improve earlier than our prior expectations," Hari told investors. However the rebound may take some time to materialize. “While visibility is limited in the near term...we believe disciplined supply-side actions from the memory manufacturers...coupled with recent supply-side disruptions will drive...an improvement in memory supply/demand sooner than previously expected” the analyst concluded. The Street currently has a Strong Buy consensus on AMAT with a $51 average price target (2% downside potential). Analog Devices (ADI)AMAT isn’t the only stock Hari is upgrading. He also issued a rare double upgrade for multinational semiconductor stock Analog Devices- taking ADI all the way from Sell to Buy. That’s with a $114 price target (9% downside potential). "First and foremost, we acknowledge that our Sell thesis on the stock - which was predicated on our guarded view towards the analog semiconductor cycle and relatively stretched valuation - has not worked," Hari admitted to investors."ADI, in our view, has exposure to multiple idiosyncratic revenue drivers," the analyst continued. "Specifically, we believe ADI's disproportionate exposure to the Comms Infrastructure end-market coupled with content gain opportunities in Automotive will drive growth that exceeds peers in the analog semiconductor space."Out of 11 analysts covering the stock, 8 rate ADI a buy, and 3 rate the stock a hold. However the average analyst price target of $116 is 7% lower than the current share price of $125. Note that the stock is currently up 45% year-to-date.
