KIRKLAND, Wash., April 21, 2020 -- Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) (Nasdaq: MPWR), a leading company in high performance analog solutions, today announced plans to report its.
The unfolding first-quarter reporting season is fraught with a lot of uncertainties from the COVID-19 pandemic.With chip companies expected to start reporting earnings this month, an analyst at Oppenheimer previewed what could be in store for the companies in its coverage universe.The Semiconductor Analyst Oppenheimer analyst Rick Schafer named NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA), Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL) and Monolithic Power Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MPWR) as his top picks.The analyst has the following ratings and price targets for his top picks: * Nvidia: Outperform/$350 * Marvell: Outperform/$30 * Monolithic: Outperform/$200The Semiconductor Thesis As the COVID-19 pandemic remains dynamic, there is likely to be near-term uncertainty for most semiconductor companies, Schafer said in a note. (See his track record here.)Supply-side concerns in China and Asia have largely abated, with labor recovering and manufacturing returning to normal in the second quarter, the analyst said. The concerns are now around demand as worldwide shutdowns shift spending patterns, he said. The coronavirus has disrupted what could have been a cyclical recovery in 2020 following a 12% drop in 2019, Schafer said. See also: Why BofA Says AMD, Nvidia Are High-Quality, High-Beta Stocks In A Volatile Market Mixed End Market Signals With automotive production nearing a standstill, Schafer forecast a low-single digit decline in semiconductor auto revenues if the seasonally adjusted annual rate of auto sales declines 10%. If the SAAR remains flat, increasing semiconductor content in cars could support high-single-digit growth, the analyst said. The prospects for the data center and cloud segments remaini strong and the most insulated, given an increase in data traffic due to working from home, he said. Schafer said he expects data center and cloud spending to cool later this year or early 2021 as hyperscalers digest new capacity.The analyst estimates mid-single-digit growth in server units in 2020, with Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) continuing to gain share from Intel Corporation's (NASDAQ: INTC) delayed 10nm server CPU.Nvidia is expected to benefit from an acceleration in AI-accelerator attach, he said.Oppenheimer is expecting a 10% year-over-year decline in smartphone unit shipments due to a decline in 4G smartphones and a potential delay in the iPhone 12 launch. The firm sees a downward bias to semiconductor estimates due to an acceleration in order cancellations into the summer. Data center, cloud and 5G RAN should remain relatively resilient, Schafer said. Oppenheimer likes Nvidia, Marvell and Monolithic Power for their structural growth, but sees risk to smartphone names and analog semis, the analyst said. Semiconductor Price Action The iShares S&P NA Tec. Semi. Idx. Fd. (NASDAQ: SOXX) was up 0.78% at $231.40 at the close Friday.Related Link: Despite Near-Term Volatility, Nvidia Analyst Remains Bullish On Data Center Positioning, Gaming Dominance Latest Ratings for NVDA DateFirmActionFromTo Apr 2020UBSMaintainsBuy Mar 2020SusquehannaMaintainsPositive Mar 2020NeedhamUpgradesHoldBuy View More Analyst Ratings for NVDA View the Latest Analyst Ratings See more from Benzinga * Despite Near-Term Volatility, Nvidia Analyst Remains Bullish On Data Center Positioning, Gaming Dominance * Nvidia Analyst Says Pandemic Creates More Data Center Demand(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.

Chip stocks Nvidia, AMD, ASML, Inphi and Monolithic Power are nearing buy points from bullish bases amid a coronavirus stock market rally.
Monolithic Power Systems, Inc. (MPS) (MPWR), a leading company in high-performance power solutions, today announced it has assembled an emergency ventilator inspired by the open-source MIT design to aid in the fight against COVID-19. MPS is applying its expertise in power management and motor controls toward a solution that can safely and easily automate a manual resuscitator when a full ICU ventilator may not be available. “We want to contribute our expertise and resources to help combat the pandemic,” said Michael Hsing, CEO and founder of MPS.
The second quarter of 2020 started with a slide in the markets, as the glum mood came after President Trump acknowledged publicly that the first two weeks of April are likely to see a rise in deaths from COVID-19, as the epidemic intensifies.In one way, this is to be expected – the disease has an incubation period up to 14 days, and course of illness lasting up to 14 cases, in cases with notable symptoms. The majority of cases are reported as mild, but the disease, as we know can be deadly in more severe cases. The social distancing moves, imposed through lockdowns and quarantines, are pounding the economy – but also slowing the spread of COVID-19. But they were implemented some two to three weeks ago, so the natural course of the disease, in those exposed before the lockdown policies took hold, is reaching its peak now, The good news is, the success of social distancing policies is slowing the disease spread, allowing hospitals to cope.Downturns can present buying opportunities for contrarian-minded investors. Investment firm Needham has recently been thinking along these lines and came out with reports on stocks that should rally when the spread of COVID-19 will stabilize, or actually benefit from the current situation.We’ve taken three of Needham’s top picks and looked them up in the TipRanks database. These are investments that TipRanks reveals as “Strong Buys” and, more importantly, all three offer robust upside potential. Let’s take a closer look. EverQuote, Inc. (EVER)Everything is available online these days. It’s one of the wonders of the internet information age in which we live, as just about any product or service can be researched and purchased with the click of a mouse and a simple online search. Some products are more amenable to online service than others, and insurance is clearly in that category.Online insurance firm EverQuote connects customers and providers through its platform, and has expanded from its beginnings in the car insurance sector to also offer life and home policies. EverQuote’s services are free for site visitors – insurance customers don’t pay any fee for using the site. The company brings in profits from charging referral fees to the policy providers – but those fees are only assessed when policies are purchased.EverQuote shares have underperformed the broader markets recently, having lost half of their value since the current bear trend began. This came after a Q4 that saw the company outperform expectations, with a net loss of 4 cents per share against a forecast of 6 cents – a loss that was less than one-third the year-ago figure of 15 cents. Revenue growth was strong in Q4, reaching $73.8 million, 8.2% over the estimates and up 85% year-over-year.With the coronavirus pandemic in full swing, older forward guidance is of little use. But it’s important to note that as restrictions are lifted and business begins to resume in 2H20, customers will need to renew lapsed insurance policies – or may have been ‘scared straight’ by the downturn, into putting their insurance protections in order.5-star Needham analyst Mayank Tandon agrees, seeing a clear path forward for the company. The analyst noted, “In our view, EVER's business model should remain largely resilient given that it is run through a digital marketplace and ~85% of the revenue comes from auto insurance, which is a nondiscretionary expense… we believe that demand should remain strong as consumers look for ways to save money in a difficult economic environment and carriers/agents compete for share by leveraging highly measurable marketing channels.”Tandon reiterates his Buy rating here, and sets a price target of $45, suggesting an upside 95%. (To watch Tanon’s track record, click here)EVER’s Strong Buy analyst consensus rating is based on a 6 to 1 split of Buys versus Hold. Shares are priced low, at $23.03, and the $46.57 average price target suggests an upside potential of 102%. (See EverQuote’s stock analysis at TipRanks)Livongo Health, Inc. (LVGO)Moving to the health industry, we find an interesting company with a unique niche. Livongo is a biotech – that develops systems for the treatment of chronic health conditions. Specifically, the company works with patients with diabetes, using a combination of medical treatment and real-time data analysis technology to give customers a personalized approach to disease management. The connection here to COVID-19 is apparent: the coronavirus disease is dangerous to patients with preexisting chronic conditions, and better management of those is key to maintaining good health.At the beginning of March, LVGO reported a strong Q4. Earnings were positive, at 2 cents per share, versus the 5-cent loss expected, and revenue, at $50.2 million, was 1.8% better than forecast. The revenue total also represented 137% year-over-year, a clear testament to the company’s valuable niche. In another clear sign that LVGO is well-suited to current conditions, the stock has posted 12% gains year-to-date, while the overall market has dropped sharply.Writing for Needham, 5-star analyst Scott Berg notes these points, saying of Livongo, “We note shares of Livongo have significantly outperformed the broader market including the Russell 2000 significantly since they reported 4Q results on March 2... We want to highlight our belief Livongo's success in FY20 is not perfectly correlated with the broader economy and they may actually benefit from some recent economic trends related to COVID-19.”Berg sets a $42 price target to back his Buy rating, implying an upside of 51%. (To watch Berg’s track record, click here)With 5 Buy-side reviews, Livongo holds a unanimous Strong Buy analyst consensus rating. The stock has an average price target of $39.40, which suggests a strong 40% upside potential from the current share price of $23.22. (See Livongo’s stock analysis at TipRanks)Monolithic Power Systems (MPWR)While its name suggests a utility, this is actually a tech company. Monolithic Power is maker of power circuits and converters, for digital, analog, and mixed-signal systems, used in portable electronics, wireless devices, computer systems, cars… and medical equipment. That last is a segment in high demand, as hospitals and medical providers are seeking expand their inventories in expectation of increased near-term need due to COVID-19.Where most companies have lost heavily recently, MPWR has managed to outperform the market. While the stock is still down in the bear market, the loss is only 13%, compared to the 23% to 26% losses in the S&P 500 and Dow Jones indexes. Monolithic entered 2020 after an in-line Q4 report. Specifically, EPS, at $1.04, edged over the estimates by 1 cent, while revenue, at $166.74 million, was 2.23% higher than expected.Strong customer orders powered the quarter, and MPWR finished 2019 with a backlog of work orders. That was noted by Needham’s 5-star analyst Quinn Bolton, who sees the backlog as a firm foundation for the company going forward, despite an overall gloomy economic outlook. Bolton opined, “Monolithic Power Systems has a consistent track record of execution and faster growth than its analog/mixed-signal peers. Targeting a growth rate 10-15 pts higher than the overall market, MPS is the fastest growing company in the attractive catalog analog segment, in our opinion. We believe MPS will continue to grow faster than the analog market in 2020 and 2021 driven by market share gains, the ramp of new products/design wins and co-development projects with tier-one customers.”Bolton maintains his Buy rating on this stock, and while he lowered his price target considering current economic declines, he still sees the stock gaining 23% in the coming year, to reach $190 per share. (To watch Bolton’s track record, click here)Monolithic is another company with a unanimous analyst consensus rating. The Strong Buy rating is based on 9 Buys, while the $201.11 average price target implies an upside potential of 29% from the current share price, $155.80.
