Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) and Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD) are engaged it what might be the fiercest corporate competition around. In May, I predicted that NVDA stock would hit $200 before AMD stock hit $16. In mid-August with the two stocks in a neck-and-neck race, I recommended investors forget about Advanced Micro Devices and buy SPDR S&P Semiconductor (ETF)(NYSEARCA:XSD) instead.
QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM) is as divisive a name as you’ll find in today’s markets. QCOM stock is essentially too big to fail according to annalists on one side of the debate. In my last write-up about Qualcomm stock, I took encouragement from its technical setup. Up until a few days ago, QCOM stock held steady around the $51 range.

What I do know is that in one of my recent articles about AMD stock, I predicted that Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) would hit $200 before Advanced Micro Devices hit $16.
With two of its biggest holdings dropping at a double-digit clip, it’s easy to understand why the SPDR S&P Semiconductor ETF (XSD) fell to the bottom of the ETF universe. While all eyes were fixed on Apple’s ...
A digital currency fund was the big performance winner in May, while semiconductor ETFs also outperformed the S&P 500 by a wide margin.
Despite posting first quarter earnings and revenue beats yesterday, shares of chipmaker Texas Instruments (TXN) are down on Wednesday. Now, with Intel (INTC) set to report its first-quarter earnings tomorrow, should investors worry that one of the biggest chipmakers in the world could see similar stagnation?
Todd Rosenbluth is director of ETF and mutual fund research at CFRA. As earnings season kicks off, investors will be closely watching the U.S. technology sector. Expectations for strong results are high. However, ETF investors will want to understand the industry-exposure differences of products they own or are considering owning, since not all tech companies have the same fundamentals.
With its top components near 52-week highs, the SPDR Semiconductor ETF is showing stalwart leadership among exchange traded funds.
The technology sector outperformed the S&P 1500 Index in 2016, driven in part by the strength of semiconductor and semi equipment industry. While software and internet stocks lagged the broader market, semiconductors (up 26%) and semiconductor equipment (42%) were among the sector’s bright spots. CFRA remains bullish on many semi securities, which helps support our view on a variety of related ETFs.
Semiconductor ETFs slumped on Wednesday as leading chipmaker Nvidia finally toppled after a relentless 10-day run of gains.
