Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF"), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into Microchip Technology Incorporated (NasdaqGS: MCHP).
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") affirmed the Ba1 corporate family rating and Baa3 senior secured rating of Microchip Technology Inc. ("Microchip") following the company's announcement that it has agreed to exchange $615 million in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured convertible notes and fund the cash portion of the exchange with a $615 million, 364-day senior secured bridge term loan facility. Although the transaction is leverage neutral, Moody's views the transaction as credit negative since it increases near term maturities and results in an increase in the proportion of secured debt in the capital structure.
Microchip (MCHP) saw a big move last session, as its shares jumped nearly 10% on the day, amid huge volumes.
Pursuant to the Exchange Transactions, Microchip has agreed to exchange $615.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Notes and accrued and unpaid interest thereon for cash and shares of Microchip’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”). Upon the closing of the Exchange Transactions, Microchip estimates that it will pay an aggregate of approximately $615.0 million in cash plus accrued interest and issue approximately 3.1 million shares of Common Stock for the Notes.
The longest bull market in history came to a crashing end on Feb. 19 as panic over the global spread of COVID-19 sent stocks into a tailspin. The S&P; 500, the most common benchmark for the U.S. equity market, plunged 30% in only a month.The outlook for stocks has arguably never been more uncertain. The situation under which we live is subject to change not just by the day, but by the hour. Although there are few places for equity investors to hide these days, Wall Street analysts are pinning their hopes on a select group of dividend stocks.Dividends are known for adding some defensive characteristics to stocks, and so it makes sense at this time to single them out. To that end, we scoured the S&P; 500 for dividend stocks with yields of more than 2%, excluding a number of extremely high yielders because of excessive current risk (such as certain energy stocks). Sometimes, a too-high yield can be a warning sign that a stock is in deep trouble. From that pool, we focused on stocks with an average broker recommendation of Buy or better. S&P; Global Market Intelligence surveys analysts' stock ratings and scores them on a five-point scale, where 1.0 equals Strong Buy and 5.0 means Strong Sell. Any score of 2.0 or lower means that analysts, on average, rate the stock a Buy. The closer the score gets to 1.0, the stronger the Buy call.Lastly, we dug into research and analysts' estimates on the top-scoring names.That led us to these top 25 dividend stocks, by virtue of their high analyst ratings, at this unprecedented moment in American history.

(SWKS) (SWKS) is the latest tech company to lower its outlook because of coronavirus’ impact on both global supply chains and demand in China. On Wednesday Skyworks (ticker: SWKS), which makes chips used by (AAPL) (AAPL) and other mobile phone companies, said it now sees revenue of $760 million to $770 million for its fiscal second quarter ending March 27, down from a previous forecast of $800 million to $820 million. The company trimmed its non-GAAP profit outlook to $1.34 a share at the midpoint of the revenue range, from $1.46.
Stocks tumbled Tuesday amid continuous fears over the spreading coronavirus outside of China, with a rate cut offering little to no support.
Microchip Technology and Qorvo have joined the parade of tech companies warning about negative impacts from the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak in China. Meanwhile, AMD stock got an upgrade.
While none of the semiconductor manufacturing company’s more than 18,000 employees or family members have tested positive for the coronavirus, Microchip's CEO said the company is taking steps to limit exposure.
Microchip Technology Inc. said late Monday it was pulling its guidance because of interruptions from the COVID-19 coronavirus. Microchip shares fell 1.3% after hours, following a 5% rise to finish the regular session at $95.22. Microchip had forecast fiscal fourth-quarter earnings of $1.35 to $1.51 a share, and analysts surveyed by FactSet are looking for $1.42 a share. In a statement, Microchip said "we see very weak demand in Asia, especially in China, driven by the COVID-19 fears, and customers returning to work at a slower pace than anticipated," adding that its "supply chain is also returning to normal operations at a slower pace than we anticipated." Rather than a forecast 2% to 9% sequential rise in revenue for the fourth quarter, the company forecast flat revenue growth and withdrew its earnings per share forecast. Analysts had forecast 4.9% sequential revenue growth to $1.35 billion.

On February 4, 2020, as part of our fourth quarter fiscal 2020 earnings call, we issued quarterly net sales guidance of up 2% to 9% sequentially, which was a wider than usual range, to reflect uncertainty related to the public health situation in China.
NXP Semi warned that its sales would be $50 to $150 million lower because of the coronavirus. Analysts, however, remain bullish on the stock of NXP and other semiconductor manufacturers.
