President Trump declared a national emergency last week -- and if you think that had something to do with global warming, terrorism, or even immigration policy, you may not have been paying close enough attention.No, this one has to do with competition in the tech sector, and specifically, competition from Huawei to lead the development of new 5G wireless technology around the world. Supported by generous state subsidies, and probably not a little state-sponsored espionage, Huawei has made great strides in developing the tech need to build a 5G infrastructure in China, in Europe, in Africa, and potentially, in the United States itself. However, as a company presumed to be under the influence of China's state security apparatus, the Trump Administration views Huawei as a clear and present danger -- if not necessarily to national security, then certainly to the peace of mind of U.S. tech firms that must compete with it.Thus, to stymie Huawei's growing influence, last week the President empowered the U.S. Secretary of Commerce to effectively "blacklist" Huawei and prevent U.S. companies from doing business with the Chinese tech giant. This order cuts off Huawei from access to microchips and other tech components essential to the manufacture of much of its 5G equipment -- everything from handsets to base stations.It also, however, prevents many U.S. companies from making sales to Huawei. And in so doing, it's hitting the business of U.S. tech giants from California -- Qualcomm (QCOM) and Broadcom (AVGO) to North Carolina -- Qorvo (QRVO) and Cree (CREE) to Massachusetts where Skyworks (SWKS) resides. Qorvo in particular looks at risk, with analysts estimating the company derives as much as 15% of its revenue from sales to Huawei (versus, for example, Broadcom, which does "de minimis" business with the Chinese company).Conversely, the Trump Administration blacklist effectively cripples Huawei's business, which depends on electronic components such as radio frequency modules, antenna tuners and other components, supplied by these American tech firms and essential to Huawei's manufacture of its 4G handsets today. Without them, the company may not live to invent the 5G tech of tomorrow. Even if the company does survive, though, Huawei's 5G tech is believed to depend on such U.S.-supplied components as "GaN power transistors" needed to build RF power amplifiers, and "silicon carbide (SiC) wafers" on which those transistors are housed, as explained in a note this week from Charter Equity Research analyst Edward Snyder.For the time being, Huawei is drawing down stockpiles of such essential components, amassed in anticipation of a ban on trade with the company. Once these supplies run out, however, Snyder warns that the company could be in something of a bind.Snyder identifies Japan's Murata Manufacturing as one potential alternative supplier of "diversity receive" (DRX) radio frequency modules -- albeit a distant second to main supplier Skyworks -- and Japan's TDK is a potential source of filters. Then again, China isn't exactly on the best of terms with Japan right now, either. (The two countries are continually feuding over ownership of certain islands in the East China Sea). Further complicating matters, TDK has a joint venture with Qualcomm, and therefore may find itself subject to the same ban restricting Qualcomm's selling to Huawei.By and large, therefore, it's Snyder's assessment that "there are no other suppliers, Chinese or otherwise, capable of filling the void left by the ban on U.S. components," and this blacklisting is likely to "devastate Huawei's phone business," at least in the 4G realm, while its development of 5G tech will "slow considerably." Conversely, in the analyst's opinion, the Trump Administration's ban on sales to Huawei is likely to accrue to the benefit of rivals like Korea's Samsung, and to Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi in China.At least, until the Trump Administration decides to blacklist those companies, as well.Read more: * A Look at Qualcomm (QCOM)-FTC Outcome and Its Impact on Apple (AAPL) * Will Qualcomm (QCOM) Stock Price Get Back to $60-65? * Qualcomm (QCOM) Stock Is a Buy Despite Huawei Saga, Says Analyst More recent articles from Smarter Analyst: * Micron's (MU) Tech Roadmap Highlights Flattening Cost Curve, Says Analyst; Reiterates Neutral on the Stock * Time to Cash Out on Cannabis Stock Canopy Growth (CGC) * GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH) Stock Could Run Much Higher Over Time * Trade Tensions Bring Micron (MU) Stock Down, But Cascend Remains Bullish

While the sector has been one of the biggest casualties of the escalation of trade tensions between the U.S. and China, news on Monday that some Huawei Technologies Co. suppliers are said to have halted shipments to the Chinese company sent chipmakers plummeting. The Philadelphia Semiconductor index fell as much as 3.3% in New York, its biggest drop in a week, while in Europe, the Stoxx 600 Technology Index slid 3%. The company said in a statement that it cannot predict when shipments will resume.
The Trump administration's decision to restrict all U.S. technology sales to Chinese telecommunications powerhouse Huawei for national security reasons doesn't just up the ante in the China trade war.
While the Nasdaq was up nearly 1% Thursday, the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index was down 1.4% after the Commerce Department announced it plans to put Huawei and 70 affiliates on an "entity list" that prevents it from buying components from U.S. suppliers without U.S. government approval. , both of which are estimated by Mizuho Securities to get over 10% of their sales from Huawei, were each down over 6%. , which both supplies Huawei and is in a patent-licensing dispute with the company, was down 4%.
President Trump's move to curb Chinese firm Huawei's access to U.S. technology drove down shares in several U.S. tech firms, including NeoPhotonics, Lumentum, Xilinx, and other suppliers.
Stocks put together another strong rebound on Thursday, as the S&P 500 hurdled a few key short-term levels. Can the rally continue? Let's look at a few top stock trades going into Friday. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 1: A. O. Smith Click to EnlargeA. O. Smith (NYSE:AOS) is actually a dividend stud, not that you'd suspect it based on Thursday's action. Shares are down more than 7% after a negative report about the company's exposure to China.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsYikes. While the stock has rebounded nicely from the session lows, it's still down big. On Wednesday, the stock was teetering on $48 support, a key level that also happened to be near the stock's 200-week moving average. * 5 Low-Priced, High-Potential Tech Stocks to Buy Thursday's plunge causes major concerns on the chart now, with a potential drop down to $41 in the cards. On a rebound, see how it handles $48. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 2: Skyworks Solutions Click to EnlargeSkyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) was also hit hard on the day, down about 5.5%.The real tell came on Wednesday though, with this week's action painting quite the picture. On Monday, shares gapped down from $82.50, closing below the key $80 level and breaking below the 200-week moving average. On Wednesday it tried to push back through the 200-day, but was rejected. That was our sign that SWKS was in trouble.Below this week's low and SWKS doesn't look too healthy. On the plus side, the stock filled its February gap, but it's still searching for support. A close above $75 improves the technical situation a bit and adds to the probability of a 200-day retest. Below $75 though and $70 is on the table. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 3: Qorvo Click to EnlargeQorvo (NASDAQ:QRVO) was also hit, falling more than 5.5% on the day. The 50-day and 20-day moving averages weren't able to hold up as support, although $68 did provide a nice bounce.Below Thursday's low and the 200-day moving average and $64.50 level are in sight. Below $64 and QRVO will be flirting with a fall into no man's land. Should the stock bounce from current levels first, watch to see how it does with the 20-day and 50-day moving averages. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 4: The Trade Desk Click to EnlargeThe Trade Desk (NASDAQ:TTD) is a name we love for the long term, but it's been volatile in the short term. Shares fell to $173.60 after earnings, falling about 25% in a matter of days. A market rebound coupled with the CEO's appearance on Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" show was enough to ignite the stock back over $200.Not bad, but now it's running into trouble.Shares ran to $210 on Thursday. Not only was this a prior resistance zone, but the 50-day and 20-day moving averages converged at $204 and helped to act as resistance.From here, a retest of TTD's range lows near $180 wouldn't be a surprise, particularly if we get some selling pressure in the broader market. A rally over $210 could spring TTD back up to $230 or more. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 5: Pinterest Click to EnlargeShares of Pinterest (NYSE:PINS) are ripping higher on Thursday, up more than 6% -- and still climbing! There's just one issue and that's earnings, which are due up after the close.Given the volatility over the past few weeks, PINS has held up pretty well. Shares were mostly bouncing between $28 and $30, with the exception of a break down to $26.39. However, the stock pushed through short-term downtrend resistance (blue line) and climbed above $30 range resistance.It will be interesting to see how it trades from here. Will the report be like Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT) and sack the newly public company or will it be enough to propel it back to its highs near $35? * 7 Stocks to Buy that Lost 10% Last Week The best case scenario for bulls? A report that highlights a solid underlying business and price action that maintains support. Be it at prior resistance near $30, the 8-day moving average at $29 or range support at $28.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

Semiconductor Stocks Fall as Trump Imposes Ban on HuaweiTrump imposes a ban on Huawei Semiconductor stocks fell once again as President Trump played another card in the United States’ trade war with China. Trump declared a national emergency,
The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index was down 1% at 12:45 p.m. in New York after paring a drop of as much as 2.3%. The rebound was squelched after the White House barred companies deemed a national security threat from selling to the U.S. and threatened to blacklist Huawei from buying essential components. Cowen analyst Chris Krueger, in a research note, called the threat a “massive escalation” in the trade tensions between the two countries.
Shares of several communication chipmakers fell sharply Thursday following the news that the U.S. Commerce Department was adding Huawei Technologies and dozens of its affiliates to an "Entity List" that would greatly restrict its ability to buy components from U.S. companies. , another communications chipmaker that got about 14% of its revenues from Huawei in 2018, according to Stifel, was trading down more than 13%. appeared to get a boost from the news, however, with Nokia trading up more than 4% on the New York Stock Exchange and Ericsson up around 2% on Nasdaq.
