After weathering the chip slump, STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM) is set up to be a leader in the Internet of Things.Source: Michael Vi / Shutterstock.com The Internet of Things combines sensors, analysis software and communications. It brings previously inanimate devices under computer control.Self-driving cars are the best-known IoT niche. STM lists Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Intel's (NASDAQ:INTC) Mobileye unit among its top 10 customers. But traffic lights, sewers, phone networks, and even biological processes, can be constantly monitored and controlled using STM microcontrollers.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Exciting Stocks to Buy for Aggressive Investors A poor first half of 2019 at STM was followed by a strong second half. This sent the shares up 85% over the last six months. At its Feb. 14 opening price of $31.29 per share, STM has a market cap of $28.5 billion against revenues of about $9.5 billion. Its price to earnings ratio of 28 is close to that of Taiwan Semiconductor (NYSE:TSM). STM Business and EarningsA valuation like that of TSM makes sense because STM both designs and makes its own chips. Many are made using obscure processes like Fully Depleted Silicon on Insulator (FD-SOI), Radio Frequency Silicon on Insulator (RF-SOI) and Vertical Intelligent Power (VIPower).For its fourth quarter, announced in January, STM beat analyst estimates with earnings of $392 million, 43 cents per share fully diluted, and revenue of $2.75 billion. Management is projecting 2020 revenues of $12 billion and what it calls "solid, sustainable growth."Most people have never heard of STM because its brand name is hidden inside other companies' products. Its chips go into sub-assemblies, programmed to collect data and communicate it over fixed or variable distances. Still, the company claims about 18,500 patents and filed for 590 more last year.One example of what STM does is its new LoRA SOC. This enables long-range transmission of data for creating smart devices that are managed remotely. The company manufactures in both France and Italy, as well as Singapore, with assembly and testing facilities in Asia and Morocco. Waiting for the PunchI began writing about IoT technology in the early 2000s, calling it the "World of Always On." I now prefer to call it "the Machine Internet," and it's a focus for growth in the new decade. Growth has been slowed by a lack of standards, by questions of security, and by privacy worries. STM works, with groups like the Zigbee Alliance on standards aimed at making microcontroller communication invisible.Some of the technical hurdles are now being crossed and niches like self-driving cars are heating up. Analysts expect STM to earn $1.45 per share this year, compared with $1.14 per share last year. Zacks recently profiled it as "an incredible growth stock," because earnings estimates have been steadily rising. The Bottom LineThe biggest risks for STM stock right now would be a manufacturing slowdown caused by the coronavirus and growing international tension slowing trade.If that happens, bigger profits will be delayed, but only for a time. The productivity benefits from radio-controlled sensors are impossible to deny. STM also has over $2.7 billion in cash on the balance sheet to weather any storm, against long term debt of $1.9 billion. That's a strong capital position for a manufacturer.A big year for STM will also mean a big year for its customers, and thus for the global economy. Products that sense and manage their own condition can be fixed before they break. They're managed remotely and increase productivity.For people who grew up at the dawn of the computer age, what STM products allow may be indistinguishable from magic. But your grandkids take it for granted.Dana Blankenhorn has been a financial and technology journalist since 1978.

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. bagged a significant smartphone shipment jump in China last month as the world’s largest consumer electronics market heads into its holiday season, official data indicate.The iPhone maker’s shipments in China grew 18.7% year on year in December to roughly 3.18 million units, according to Bloomberg calculations based on government data on overall and Android device shipments. The increase marked an acceleration from the prior months, which were buoyed by the iPhone 11’s release in September. The numbers come from the China Academy of Information and Communication Technology, a government think tank.Shares in Apple suppliers AMS AG, Infineon Technologies AG, STMicroelectronics NV and Dialog Semiconductor Plc climbed in early European trade, buoyed by an overall tech-sector rally. The improvement in December iPhone sales in China despite a lack of 5G readiness was “quite positive” for Apple and its suppliers, analysts at Oddo wrote in a note Thursday.Read more: Tech Stocks Reclaim June 2001 Highs as Apple Suppliers RallyApple made major strides in increasing battery life in its iPhone 11 and 11 Pro devices while lowering the starting price by $50. After years of stagnation in cameras, the company also overhauled the iPhone’s image quality in 2019, catching up to category leaders Google and Huawei Technologies Co. This approach drew an overwhelmingly positive reception from critics.The latest data affirms expectations that the iPhone 11 is selling more strongly than its predecessor, particularly in a market that’s second only to the U.S. in its importance to Apple’s bottom line. The surge in shipments gives reason for optimism around Apple’s smartphone sales in the buildup to the Chinese New Year, which falls in late January. China’s overall smartphone shipments in December fell short of 30 million units, a 13.7% decrease compared to the same period in 2018, according to CAICT.Still, the Cupertino, California-based company is fighting an uphill battle against a group of local vendors led by Huawei, which gained a dominant position in 2019 despite facing sanctions and struggles abroad. As the year progresses, Apple’s lack of 5G-enabled devices and inability to get its full range of online services past Chinese censors will make sustaining this initial shipment improvement an uncertain task.(Updates with shares from the third paragraph)To contact Bloomberg News staff for this story: Gao Yuan in Beijing at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Edwin Chan at email@example.com, Vlad Savov, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- For Paul Boudre, U.S. President Donald Trump’s push against Chinese telecommunications companies is less about espionage than the race for technological supremacy.Boudre, the chief executive officer of Soitec, a French maker of semiconductor materials that go into 5G equipment, automobiles, cloud computing and IT infrastructure, says Trump’s actions are aimed primarily at allowing American firms to catch up.“Trump’s kick in the pants for companies is to wake them up and to catch up,” Boudre said in an interview Tuesday in Paris. “Trump is the emissary saying that if nothing is done, we’ll be blown away. That’s why he’s been trying to put a brake on the advances that China has made.”With the “everything-connected” era well under way, the race for a technological edge is intensifying. Trump has repeated railed against China and its companies, including Huawei Technologies Co., citing industrial espionage and intellectual property theft. He has limited their access to the U.S. market and to American suppliers, while also pressing allies from Japan to The Netherlands to review policies toward the Asian giant.The executive push and the infrastructure policy are driving U.S. companies like Cisco, Qorvo Inc., Skyworks Solutions to accelerate their research, a move that could allow American players to get new 5G technologies rolling out potentially in 2021, Boudre said.“Technology has become political today,” he said.Supply ChainsThe U.S. pushed to block the sale of chip manufacturer ASML’s technology to China by sharing a classified intelligence report with the Dutch government, Reuters reported on Monday, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter.Soitec, which has factories and licenses for producing the substrate for handsets and infrastructure in France, Singapore and China, can provide “China Free” material if requested, Boudre said, adding that no such demands have been made by its clients.“What’s happened with Trump is a modification of supply chains,” he said. “Huawei won’t rely exclusively anymore on Qorvo, Skyworks, Qualcomm, because there is a risk. So they’ve developed relations with Murata, STMicro and others.”Developments in the U.S. 5G market this year and next will be a test of whether Trump’s policies were fruitful, Boudre said.“Clearly, two technologies are now being implemented,” with China’s 5G building on 4G, while the U.S.’s 5G that’s more of a new development called “millimeter wave.” The U.S. technology may hit the broad market in 2021, Boudre said, with Cisco driving the innovation. Qualcomm’s modem chip using millimeter wave technology is likely to hit the market in 2020.Soitec RisingWhile Trump’s moves have roiled trade and supply chains for companies building 5G and other technologies, Soitec has been spared, the executive said.The company, whose material goes into almost every smartphone in the world, plans to double sales in the next three years, reaching $1 billion in its fiscal year 2022, and sees revenue tripling in the next five years or so.Founded in the early 1990s in the French Alps, Soitec, which now employs 1,500 people, sits at the heart of the revolution that’s made possible everything from mobile phones, personal assistants like Amazon.com Inc.’s Alexa and Google’s Nest, to 5G antennas and connected devices in cars.In the automotive sector, where Europe has an edge, Soitec is working with Robert Bosch GmbH, Audi AG, STMicroelectronics NV and others to define future components, Boudre said. In artificial intelligence, he sees a shift of computing power from the cloud to devices lifting demand for Soitec’s materials, which allow chipmakers to combine computing, memory and connectivity on a single chip.The extent of all that growth will be evident when the company discusses its long-term plans in June, Boudre said.Soitec’s stock rose 85% in 2019, making it among the top 10 performers of the benchmark SBF120 index.\--With assistance from Caroline Connan and Francine Lacqua.To contact the reporters on this story: Helene Fouquet in Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org;Rudy Ruitenberg in Paris at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Giles Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org, Vidya RootFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
