This has been an epic year for the stock markets. At the heart of the battles are the chip stocks, especially Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD). In the summer it rallied 160% while the VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (NYSEARCA:SMH) was in a sideways seesaw.
Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) has just unveiled a new technology that may well let virtual reality become what it was supposed to already be by now. Gamers, VR fans, technophiles and Nvidia stock owners, on the other hand, will almost surely be impressed. Nvidia has developed a way to create an interactive virtual reality environment using real-world videos rather than creating that world with nothing but computer coding.
Although 5G has launched in a handful of markets, 2019 will become the year when it begins to operate on a large-scale basis. Hardware manufacturers have released chips for phones and other devices that can support 5G, and help 5G stocks. Since 5G will likely bring new applications not yet imagined, we cannot know the full extent of the changes it will deliver.
As of December 7 at 12:15 PM EST, Apple stock was down 2.4% from its previous day’s closing price, extending the losses it had seen in the last couple of sessions. On a quarter-to-date basis, AAPL has fallen 22.6% compared to the 10.3% fall in the NASDAQ Composite Index (QQQ) in the fourth quarter so far. Earlier today, popular investment company Morgan Stanley revised its price target on Apple stock to $236 from $253, CNBC reported.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has been looking to tap the high-end data center market, which is governed by Intel’s (INTC) Xeon CPUs (central processing units) and NVIDIA’s (NVDA) Tesla GPUs (graphics processing units). Intel and NVIDIA have launched several suites and generations of data center and AI (artificial intelligence) products.
Many of the major players like NVIDIA (NVDA) and Texas Instruments (TXN) reported weak earnings guidance for the fourth quarter. Broadcom (AVGO) stood apart from the crowd. Broadcom reported its better-than-expected third-quarter earnings and strong guidance on December 6, which sent the stock up 5.2% in the after-market session.
The arrest of the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies is sure to put a crimp in the Trump Administration’s truce with China over trade, but investors are also nervous about the impact the whole saga will have on Silicon Valley
NVIDIA's (NVDA) T-Rex is the latest high-end Turing-based GPU, offering more powerful ray tracing capacity and increased performance speed.
Learning how to invest in stocks can be intimidating. Stock market beginners face many questions. How to buy stocks? When to sell? How to read charts? Here you'll find answers.
Snap (NYSE:SNAP) is never a stock I’ve liked very much on the long side. Snap has solid revenue growth, but also bleeds too much money. Snap is down more than 50% so far in 2018 and at some point, it will likely bottom.
Evidence of late-cycle dynamics abound, from falling earnings growth projections to an ultra-tight labor market to tightening monetary policy. It isn’t working, with the company touting higher trade-in allowances on older models as it’s forced to adopt a promotional strategy. The company will next report results on Jan. 29 after the close.
Previously, we saw that Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) could launch its Vega GPUs (graphics processing units) on TSMC’s (TSM) 7nm (nanometer) node by the end of the year. In a corporate blog, AMD chief technology officer Mark Papermaster stated that the company would be launching more products on TSMC’s 7nm node, including its next-generation Navi GPU.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) launched a refresh of its Polaris-based Radeon GPUs (graphics processing units) to tap gaming demand during the holiday season. The company is also looking to leverage its GPU technology in the data center market, where NVIDIA (NVDA) has a head start.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) launched its Polaris-refreshed Radeon 590 GPU (graphics processing unit) on November 21 to tap the gaming market. The launch comes at a time when the channel is facing excess midrange GPU inventory and rival NVIDIA (NVDA) has halted shipments of its midrange GPUs to give the channel time to clear excess inventory. As AMD has failed to beat NVIDIA in the high-end gaming GPU segment, it is looking to increase its share in the midrange GPU segment.
In this series, we’ve discussed how IBM’s (IBM) z14 mainframe computer has been driving its Systems revenue growth in the last year. However, z14 growth could slow, as mainframe cycles typically show growth for four or five quarters. IBM is optimistic that its POWER9 multiprocessors will drive its Systems growth in the future.
AMAT stock has pulled back over 40% from its early-year highs, and Applied Materials stock now trades at a seemingly reasonable forward price- earnings multiple of eight. The question at the moment is whether semiconductor stocks’ multiples should be dropping. For the most part, it’s been sectorwide pressures, not execution, that has pressured AMAT stock over the past eight months.
Add intelligence to machines and you don’t need operators. Add intelligence to business processes and you can make them self-service. At its Dec. 4 closing price of $157 per share, Nvidia is still selling at about 8 times last year’s sales, but its data center business remains strong.
Earlier, we saw that Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) was looking to capitalize on the crypto opportunity with its Vega GPU (graphics processing unit), which failed to gather traction in the gaming market. Now that the crypto bubble has burst, the company is looking to tap the gaming market with new offerings. On November 21, it launched the Polaris-refreshed Radeon RX 590 GPU, which aims to deliver a much higher gaming performance than the RX 580 with a faster clock speed.
