The U.S. government may expand its power to stop more foreign shipments of products with U.S. technology to China's Huawei, amid frustration the company's blacklisting has failed to cut off supplies to the world's largest telecoms equipment maker, two sources said. The U.S. Commerce Department in May placed Huawei Technologies on a trade blacklist, citing national security concerns. Putting Huawei on the entity list, as it is known, allowed the U.S. government to restrict sales of U.S.-made goods to the company, and some more limited items made abroad that contain U.S. technology.

Finding top semiconductor stocks to buy involves understanding the health of markets that purchase chips for their products. Chip stocks have risen on hopes for a 2020 market recovery.
Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) fell from grace last October into a 57% correction where Nvidia stock lost more than half its value. At the peak, the love for NVDA on Wall Street was extreme. All experts agreed at the time that it belonged in every portfolio. But what ensued was a tremendous correction that overshot to the downside. After all the damage was done, Nvidia stabilized at the breakout neckline from May of 2017.Source: Al Medwedsky / Shutterstock.com Since then, the stock has been setting higher-lows in an effort to recover prior glories. But it still has a long way to go.NVDA didn't fall alone, the whole stock market also tripped at the same time in October of 2018. But the difference is that the indices are back to new all-time highs, whereas Nvidia stock just got back to the 50% retracement level.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Medical Marijuana Stocks to Cure Your Portfolio And for those who follow Fibonacci, this is not an ideal place to start a bullish position. Even though it is in a breakout off $140 per share, going into its earnings management will need to deliver a very bullish outlook for the stock to rally much further from here.If I have profits in the stock, I would lock them in going into the binary event. Wall Street investors are fickle around earnings. And the subsequent moves more often than not involve sentiment rather than facts.Then there is the matter of geopolitical risk. The chip stocks are very sensitive to the rhetoric from the economic war with China. And lately the politicians have been cordial on the subject, but this can flip on a dime. However going into an election season, the U.S. is more likely to loosen the reins on the deal with China. So what has been holding down the sector and stocks like Nvidia, Advance Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) may be abating. Nvidia Stock: Timing Is Crucial This Coming WeekThere is more upside to come in NVDA stock, but it's more about timing. The zone through $220 per share is resistive. But the reins are in the hands of the bulls for as long as it stays above $180 per share. So even if there is a dip on the earnings event, it would make for a good entry point for a bounce. And maybe the next leg higher would break through the resistance above. The important thing is that technically it continues to set higher-lows in order to continue the bullish progress in the stock. It is also important that management doesn't deliver surprisingly bad news.AMD has been the chip champ as it just set new highs. Intel comes in a close second as it has completely recovered from last year. Nvidia is still lagging as it needs another 40% rally from here to reach its October accident scene. So maybe it has a catch-up play in the making but one that could be made or broken the morning after the earnings.This is a good company with good products in an industry that will be in high demand for decades. But it is not cheap. It has a price-to-earnings ratio of 54 and sells at 11 times sales. This is three times more expensive than INTC, but gives AMD a run for its money there. They are both frothy, so there is some fat to trim, especially if the headlines sour once more.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

[Editor's note: "7 Semiconductor Stocks to Buy for Your Inner Geek" was previously published in July 2019. It has since been updated to include the most relevant information available.]Last year saw chip stocks swoon. There was the beginning of the trade war with China and all the unknowns it brought about.Remember, the one thing the market hates more than anything is uncertainty. And living with the uncertainty of how this powerful industry was going to navigate an all-out - or even partial - trade war was on everyone's mind.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsGlobal economies haven't been expanding as quickly as hoped, so spending has slowed. And that meant semiconductor stocks may well be starting their downward cycle.Smaller firms were spared initially, as the big semi firms took the brunt of it. But then the sector suffered. * 7 Stocks to Sell Before They Roll Over This year is entirely different. The S&P Semiconductor Select Industry Index has returned a whopping 43.8% year to date, more than doubling the S&P 500's 21%.Even the slowing U.S. economy won't slow them down now. Below are seven semiconductor stocks to buy to satisfy your inner geek and your growth portfolio. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)Source: Shutterstock Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) looked like a goner a couple years ago.It was competing in two sectors that put it up against the biggest chipmakers out there, plus it was living on scraps from Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) in both the CPU and GPU markets.As the market began to transform with AI, cloud, and IoT gaining momentum, AMD looked like it was a bit lost. It still made quality products but was struggling to keep up. Lisa Su took over in 2015 and started to make changes, it was just a question of whether she could make them before it was too late.It's safe to say now, she has.AMD stock is making a comeback and competing again. It has also been beating earnings on a regular basis. AMD stock is up more than 90% year to date and doesn't show many signs of weakness. All of these factors make AMD one of the key semiconductor stocks to buy. Enphase Energy (ENPH)Enphase Energy (NASDAQ:ENPH) isn't technically a semiconductor stock, but it falls into the category since its niche doesn't really fit better anywhere else. At any rate, it's a great stock to buy.ENPH has become the leading builder of microinverter systems for the solar photovoltaic industry.Basically, when you get energy from solar panels (or most renewables), the electricity is DC (direct current). But the grid, residences, and offices operate on AC (alternating current).You have to convert that DC power to AC to make it useful. That's what inverters do.Prices are coming down as more solar is being deployed. ENPH is getting a lot of that new business. * 7 Under-the-Radar Retail Stocks to Buy Now What makes this one of the best semiconductor stocks ti buy is that it's already up around 70% year to date and this train just started running. Inphi (IPHI)Inphi Corp (NASDAQ:IPHI) is a small analog-to-digital chip maker company in a very high-growth space. Unfortunately, the trade war with China has hamstrung its ability to keep its rapid growth going.IPHI stock has bounced around the past few years but is really coming into its own over the past year.The stock is up 85% in the past year and 120% year to date. Its chips are focused in the server, communications and cloud sectors.Like all chip stocks, IPHI took a hit last year when the trade war started because it had big clients in China. The market for its products was growing quickly there as Chinese tech spread across Asia. As tensions ease, though, this is one of the semiconductor stocks to buy you want to keep your eye on. Lattice Semiconductor (LSCC)Source: Shutterstock Lattice Semiconductor (NASDAQ:LSCC) is back to focusing on its core technology - field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). These are semiconductors that have become very popular products for a variety of industries.For a while, LSCC was trying to diversify its product lines into various sectors of the tech space, which wasn't getting much traction. LSCC is now back to focusing on its core business.That's why over the past two years the stock flat-lined for the most part, until 2019 began.Another big part of it was the fact that LSCC has had historically close ties to the Chinese market, so the trade war was a big factor in its performance. But again, uncertainty was more the issue. * 7 Dividend Stocks That Could Struggle to Continue Payout Hikes By January, the trade war fallout was clear and resetting expectations boosted LSCC. The stock is up 180% year to date and looks well-positioned to get moving again. It's a stock to buy. Xilinx (XLNX)Xilinx (NASDAQ:XLNX) is one of the few semiconductor stocks to buy on this list that isn't rallying like crazy.The reason? One of its top customers happens to be Huawei, the massive Chinese telecom company.But there's no real reason to be alarmed. This company has a $30 billion market cap, is up 44% year to date, and sells at a trailing PE of 35.XLNX is a leading chipmaker in two of the hottest sectors right now: 5G telecom and data centers.There's little doubt that XLNX will continue to grow and maintain its position in lead-edge technologies. It might not be growing as quickly as smaller firms in the sector, but it's a solid, world-class player with a very bright future. Cirrus Logic (CRUS)Source: Hamish Irvine via FlickrCirrus Logic (NASDAQ:CRUS) is what's known as a "fabless" chipmaker, which essentially means it outsources production of its silicon wafers.From here, things get pretty technical, as its production slate includes codecs for analog-to-digital or digital-to-analog converters, smart codecs, boosted amplifiers and haptic drivers, among other integrated circuits (IC).Chances are these ICs are used in your laptop, smartwatch or even your virtual reality (VR) headset, especially if your device is an iPhone.Cirrus Logic's stock has outperformed in 2019, rising 100% year-to-date. The performance of CRUS is closely tied to sentiment around Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), up 30%-plus. * 7 AI Stocks to Buy to Profit from the Recent Tech Correction As demand for iPhones increases, so do Cirrus shares. Some see weakness in Cirrus Logic's lack of diversification, but if you're going to be tied down, there are not many companies that are better to be tied to than Apple. Mellanox Technologies (MLNX)Source: Shutterstock Mellanox Technologies (NASDAQ:MLNX) is an Israel-based chip firm that also produces a number of interconnect and switch systems.Its fundamental purpose is to build support systems that facilitate data transmission between servers, storage systems, telecom and other embedded equipment. This is a very important bridge technology that allows all the tech on one side to get its information to the other side.In March, NVDA announced it was buying MLNX for $6.9 billion. INTC had tried to buy it in January but was rebuffed. Other suitors included Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and XLNX. It's a very sought-after company.While the company sells for around $114 a share, that doesn't exactly equate to where the stock will eventually land.At this point, MLNX is a stock to buy and an interesting way to buy into NVDA. This is a key player in a very important sector of tech moving forward.
