    Why China Is Banning Some of Micron Technology’s Products

    A Chinese court has barred Micron Technology (MU) from selling some of its products in China for the time being, according to a July 4 Wall Street Journal report. This decision comes as the trade war is intensifying between the United States and China.

    Why Micron Stock Rose 2.64% Despite China’s Ban on Sales

    Micron Technology (MU) stock has been on a roller coaster ride since US-China trade tensions escalated. On Tuesday, July 3, the stock fell 5.5% after the announcement that a Chinese court has temporarily banned Micron’s chip sales in China in a patent infringement lawsuit. Micron estimates that the ban won’t hurt its quarterly revenue more than 1% of its annual sales, which brought a sigh of relief to Micron investors and was reflected in the stock price.

    Micron in the Middle: Rising Tensions in China Could Put Pressure on DRAM Prices

    has been caught in the middle of the U.S.-China trade war, what does the escalation of tensions between Chinese and U.S. chip makers mean for DRAM prices? said the Fujian province court issued a preliminary injunction against Micron preventing the sale of a number of solid state drives and memory sticks, according to a press release on July 3. Given the market position of Micron, which supplies nearly a quarter of global DRAM, a permanent injunction against its products in China could easily spike DRAM prices.

    Micron says China ban unfair but won't hurt revenue

    The firm's estimate that the ban imposed by a Chinese court in a patent infringement lawsuit would weaken quarterly revenue by just 1 percent drove its shares as much as 3.6 percent higher and lifted stocks of other U.S. chipmakers. Shares in the sector had been shaken on Tuesday by the first reports of the ruling, which added to a growing list of intellectual property disputes between Washington and China in the technology sector. Micron said the ruling by a Fuzhou Court in a lawsuit filed by rivals United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) and Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co temporarily bans it from selling some memory chips and solid state drives in China.

The price-to-earnings multiple of Micron (NASDAQ:MU), the Boise-based maker of memory chips, fell to 5.16 on July 3 after a Chinese court, playing jiu-jitsu on intellectual property, ruled that it stole designs from a Chinese rival seen as a conduit into China for its own patents.

    Micron Rallies as It Says Injunction in China Won't Affect Its Quarter

    The Street is mulling the disclosure Tuesday that Micron Technology's (MU)  chips have temporarily been banned in China. Micron a short while ago provided a statement about the matter, stating that two of its subsidiaries in China were notified by the Fuzhou Intermediate People's Court, Fujian Province, that the court "has granted a preliminary injunction against those entities in patent infringement cases filed by United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) and Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co. (Jinhua)." Micron has been in a legal battle with Taiwan-based, United Microelectronics since December, when Micron sued United, alleging theft of secrets, following which UMC sued Micron for patent infringement.

    Micron's stock bounces; analyst says China-related weakness could be a 'buying opportunity'

    Shares of Micron Technology Inc. (mu) slipped 0.5% in active premarket trade Thursday, but pared earlier sharp losses, after Stifel Nicolaus analyst Kevin Cassidy said China's blocking of sales of the company's memory-chip products could be a buying opportunity. Micron's stock had tumbled 5.5% on Tuesday, after Taiwan's United Microelectronics Corp. (umc) said China's Fuzhou Intermediate People’s Court issued a preliminary injunction against Micron's Chinese subsidiaries blocking sales of "PRC 26 DRAM and NAND-related items." Cassidy said the lack of details of the injunction--what patents were infringed, what are the injunction terms, which Micron devices and what percent of Micron's China revenue--suggests China's goal may be to push Micron toward partnering with China semiconductor foundries.
