(Bloomberg) -- Shares of semiconductor companies and other suppliers to Huawei Technologies Co. spiked on Monday, after President Donald Trump said he would delay trade restrictions against the China-based company, suggesting an easing to one of the biggest headwinds facing the group.The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index jumped as much as 5%, putting the industry benchmark on track for its highest close since early May, as well as its fourth straight positive session. While the index is still about 4.3% below record levels, it has surged more than 17% off a low from late May. Among notable gainers, Western Digital Corp. spiked as much as 7.4% in what was set to be its 10th positive session, its longest rally since a 10-day gain that ended in March 2018. WDC, which gets about 4.3% of its revenue from Huawei, according to supply chain data compiled by Bloomberg, has surged nearly 41% over the 10-day rally.Micron Technology jumped 8.1%. The company gets 13% of its revenue from Huawei.Chipmakers were broadly higher across the globe, supported after the U.S. and China declared a truce in their trade war over the weekend. The industry has been highly correlated to this issue, given that China is both a major market for companies, as well as a critical part of their supply chains.Separately, Lam Research was up 3%, and U.S.-listed shares of ASML Holding NV rose 3.6%. Applied Materials rose 5.9%; the company earlier announced it would buy Kokusai Electric from KKR & Co. in a deal worth about $2.2 billion.RBC Capital Markets analyst Mitch Steves wrote that he viewed the Huawei announcement “as a large positive for the semiconductor industry even though it is unclear if the lift will be permanent in nature.”He added that the implications of the announcement were “unclear for Nvidia, AMD and Analog Devices given that their products represent potential security risks.” Nevertheless, these names were were also among the day’s gainers.Nvidia rose 5.9%, Advanced Micro Devices climbed 5.5%, and Analog Devices gained 4.7%.Among other major Huawei suppliers, NeoPhotonics Corp. -- which gets nearly half its revenue from Huawei -- spiked nearly 22%. Lumentum Holdings jumped 9%; more than 18% of its revenue is derived from Huawei.Semiconductor stocks have performed well throughout the first half of 2019, despite waning optimism that they could see improvements in such key issues as demand, pricing and inventory levels over the remainder of the year.(Updates trading to market open throughout, adds chart.)To contact the reporter on this story: Ryan Vlastelica in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Catherine Larkin at email@example.com, Steven Fromm, Janet FreundFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- European technology stocks reached the highest level since June 2018 after the U.S. and China signaled a truce in the trade dispute, and the U.S. said it would permit some companies to do business with blacklisted Huawei Technologies Co.Chipmakers in Europe have taken a hit since the U.S. blacklisted China's Huawei and scores of its affiliates around the world in May. That decision also exacerbated trade tensions between the U.S. and China, hurting chipmakers since China is a key end market for their components. Two silicon wafer companies, the U.K.’s IQE Plc and Germany’s Siltronic AG, both warned last month about the impact of the ban, and the broader effect of the trade war on the semiconductor sector.The Stoxx 600 Technology sub-index rose as much as 2.5%, the most intraday since April 24, with semiconductor firms leading the charge. AMS AG, STMicroelectronics and Infineon Technologies AG all surged, as did chip equipment makers like ASML Holding NV and ASM International NV.Conversely, telecoms equipment groups Nokia Oyj and Ericsson AB have benefited from the blacklisting of Huawei as it removed a key competitor for contracts to build the next generation of 5G mobile networks. Those two were among the worst performers in a mostly green tech sector on Monday morning.Here’s what analysts are saying:CowenCurtailing restrictions on Huawei “could temporarily improve sentiment” on the semiconductor capital equipment group. Although most of these companies, such as ASML and Applied Materials Inc., don’t sell directly to Huawei, they’ve been affected by recent semiconductor supply chain disruptions, the analysts said.Morgan Stanley“A resumption in trade talks is a step in the right direction, although it will not cure the fundamental problem of weaker demand and excess inventory that continues to plague semis. A resolution on trade could provide an important catalyst to help demand, but as of right now it feels like status quo.”Oddo“The readacross is positive for the smartphone market and the semiconductor market as the U.S. and China converge toward a deal. The halt on additional tariffs should also bring some stability to the semiconductor market.”Liberum“These moves are positive for the entire tech industry, especially semiconductor suppliers. The semiconductor down cycle is currently at its trough” with a new up cycle expected to start from the second half of the year, the analysts said.“The removal of sanctions on Huawei and the holding off of additional tariffs is likely to strengthen the recovery in coming months.’’New Street“First of all, it is worth noting this is not a full lift; tensions will remain. Second, it means China will accelerate the development of alternative supply chains and ecosystems. It means investments will probably accelerate, to the benefit of the semicap equipment industry.’’“On the 5G front, it means things will get back into motion. Huawei will likely lose some market share in Europe, where operators will continue to buy from Huawei but reduce exposure to the vendor, while European players will likely lose ground in China in similar magnitude.’’Baader Helvea“The positive element certainly is Trump’s softened stance on Huawei, which has not been expected ahead of the meeting. This may raise hopes that a technology war can be averted. However, the Huawei issue will probably be part of any trade deal and may only be addressed at a later stage when other stumbling stones have been resolved.’’(Adds analyst comments.)To contact the reporters on this story: Sam Unsted in London at firstname.lastname@example.org;Kasper Viita in London at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Beth Mellor at firstname.lastname@example.org, Monica Houston-WaeschFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

The Santa Clara County Superior Court in California awarded ASML $845 million along with an injunction, ASML said. The Netherlands-based company said the judgment would be uncollectible as Xtal is in bankruptcy, but under a settlement arrangement ASML will end up owning most or all of Xtal's intellectual property through the bankruptcy process.
