Finding top semiconductor stocks to buy involves understanding the health of markets that purchase chips for their products. Chip stocks have risen ahead of second-quarter earnings reports.
The Morningstar U.S. Technology Index is up 23% year to date through June 25, making it the top-performing sector. U.S. and China trade tensions remain a source of volatility, most notably with the U.S. ban on selling into Huawei, a significant smartphone and network equipment maker. The median technology stock is roughly 4% below our fair value estimate, similar to the 2% premium at the end of the first quarter.
Shares of Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) have been on a tear so far in 2019, up over 70% year to date. But to me, it seems like investors in have some things to consider.I do not own this stock, but if I did these issues would concern me and I would probably sell it here. Issues with AMD Stock Click to Enlarge First of all, the last time that AMD traded at these levels back in September and October, sellers entered the market and drove it much lower. From the end of September through the end of October, AMD lost almost 50% of its value.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe stock recently ran into resistance at $32.50 and was unable to stay above it. AMD stock needs to push past that level, and so far it has failed to do so.Second, the tech sector as a whole is testing resistance as well. If the Sector goes lower, it will probably take AMD with it. Click to Enlarge The Technology Select Sector Spider (NYSEARCA:XLK) follows the tech sector. You can see here that they are currently testing the same resistance levels that sold off from in late April and early May.The third thing that would concern me is AMD stock's valuation verses the other members of its peer group. According the CNBC, AMD has the highest valuation in its group. The price-to-earnings ratio of AMD is 47. This is way higher than its peers. Analog Devices (NYSE:ADI) has a P/E ratio of 22. KLA-Tencor (NASDAAQ:KLAC) and Microchip Technology (NASDAQ:MCHP) each have price-to-earnings ratio of around 14. The last member of the group, Xilinx (NASDAQ:XLNX), has a P/E ratio of 29.The fourth thing that I would consider bearish for the stock is the lack of insider buying.I went back one year and I couldn't find any significant insider buying. That worries me. After all, who knows more about what is going on insider a company than the insiders? If they don't want to own their company's stock then I don't want to either.And finally, the fifth thing that makes me want to sell AMD is actually the recent upgrade at Morgan Stanley.Hear me out. On June 6, AMD stock was upgraded from underwieght to equal weight. "Being cautious on the stock has obviously been the wrong call, even though we were right on some aspects," said Joseph Moore in a note on Thursday. That sounds positive, right? But what concerns me is that Morgan Stanley's price target is $28. This is almost 10% below current levels.Now, none of this is to say AMD absolutely can't make gains here. It's just that so many technical indicators look worrisome that I'd steer clear for now.As of this writing, Mark Putrino did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Support has held for Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) shares again. In late May, the Nvidia stock price dipped below $135. As was the case in November, late December, and late January, NVDA stock rebounded.Source: Nvidia There has been some outside help, admittedly. Progress on the trade war with China has boosted the entire chip sector. The tech-heavy NASDAQ Composite looks like it's targeting new all-time highs. But at least for now, the market seems to have a threshold where it decides the Nvidia stock price is just too cheap.The question now is whether that support can hold again, if tested. And that comes down to the chipmaker's performance in the second half of its fiscal 2020. That starts about six weeks from now. This is a second-half story, as I've written earlier this year and as NVDA management itself has insisted.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIf management is right, the rally could keep going. I remain skeptical, given long-term risks. Plus, the short-term news of late looks mixed. NVDA Stock and the Second HalfTo be sure, it's widely known that NVDA relies on a second-half recovery. Management made that case after fiscal-fourth-quarter results. They even took the unusual step of offering full-year guidance to highlight the dichotomy between the first and second half. * 6 Stocks Ready to Bounce on a Trade Deal So far, Nvidia continues to sing the same tune. CFO Colette Kress reiterated on Q1's conference call in mid-May that "we expect a stronger second half than the first." Last week, at an investment conference, she said much the same regarding data-center demand.There are two factors at play here. First-half results last year, in the company's fiscal 2019, were enormously impressive. In retrospect, those results were driven by demand for cryptocurrency mining. In the first half of this year, Nvidia faces very difficult comparisons. It's also suffering from what the company itself has called a "crypto hangover." At the same time, data-center demand has slowed, as key customers paused spending.In the second half, however, the situation reverses. Comparisons get easier, particularly in Q4. And data-center growth -- as Kress said last week -- should return. And so the Street at least sees revenue declining 18% in Q2 and 6% in Q3 before a sharp rebound (+47%) in Q4 sets up 20% growth in fiscal 2021. The Importance of the RecoveryThe question now is whether that recovery is on the way. And it's not just a matter of NVDA earnings rebounding a quarter or two early -- or a quarter or two late.First, management's credibility is at stake. Last year, Nvidia clearly misjudged cryptocurrency demand both financially and operationally. The company didn't see the drop-off in sales coming. Unfortunately, it overproduced GPUs, leading to an inventory glut in the first half of this year. Another broken promise will make Nvidia a "show me" story for some time to come.Secondly, data-center demand in particular must come back quickly. That's an area where investors see years of double-digit growth ahead. A longer slowdown will raise fears that demand issues aren't short-term, but rather a sign that investors (and management) simply overestimated the market opportunity.And third, Nvidia has an opportunity to take share from Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) in that market. Intel is dealing with shortages and a number of other unforced errors. Its leadership team seems more cautious about second-half demand. If Nvidia sees a recovery and Intel doesn't, that's a sign that Intel's dominance in that market is eroding further. That leaves NVDA and Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) likely picking up share. But Is It en Route?Is that recovery on the way? We'll see. CFO Kress' sentiment toward data center, and similar comments from another Nvidia executive regarding AI a week before, unquestionably are good news. We don't know exactly how clear is Nvidia's visibility into Q3 and Q4. However, the company hasn't backed off its forecast yet.On the other hand, chip giant Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) sounded much more cautious after its fiscal Q2 report last week. The day before, Evercore (NYSE:EVR) pushed its forecast for a recovery well into 2020. As MarketWatch noted after Nvidia earnings last month, Microchip Technology (NASDAQ:MCHP) CEO Steve Sanghi "lightly walked back" his call of a bottom in chips.To be sure, Nvidia doesn't necessarily play in the same markets as those other chipmakers. It's possible NVDA could follow the bullish trajectory while the rest of the space stays stuck near the bottom of the cycle. Still, after the debacle last year, it's wise to take Nvidia management's projections with a grain of salt.With Nvidia stock still off the lows, there is a case to stay patient. After all, the recovery can come in Q4 FY2020 or Q3 FY2021. NVDA still isn't that expensive on an earnings basis, though it's not cheap by chip standards. The long-term growth drivers -- data center, artificial intelligence, autonomous driving -- are mostly in place.But AMD is rising as a real competitor. I personally still see self-driving cars as a long way off. And investor patience is likely going to wane if NVDA is overpromising again. Nvidia stock has bounced off support several times. It won't be able to do so forever.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
