Does the May share price for Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX) reflect what it's really worth? Today, we will estimate the...
Xilinx announced the industry’s first 20-nanometer (nm) space-grade FPGA for satellite and space applications.
The best 5G stocks to invest in will change over time. The consumer smartphone market will evolve into broader 5G wireless enterprise opportunities. Apple's 5G iPhone launch is one key.
Xilinx, Inc. announced that it has priced its offering of $750 million aggregate principal amount of its 2.375% Senior Notes due 2030
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") assigned an A3 senior unsecured rating to Xilinx, Inc.'s proposed debt offering. Xilinx's credit profile reflects its leading position in the $6 billion programmable logic device (PLD) market where Xilinx has over 55% market share and competes mostly with just one other company (Altera, owned by Intel). Xilinx has generated positive free cash flow each year for more than a decade, and we expect ongoing strong credit metrics even in the currently challenging macro environment.
Xilinx, Inc. announced it is establishing Xilinx® Adaptive Compute Clusters (XACC) at four of the world’s most prestigious universities.
Xilinx's (NASDAQ: XLNX) fiscal fourth-quarter results turned out to be a mixed bag. The chipmaker beat Wall Street's revenue expectations by a small margin and met earnings estimates, but its guidance played spoilsport. Xilinx forecast $660 million to $720 million in revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, the mid-point of which is going to fall well short of the consensus estimate of $738.8 million.
5G is here. The new digital wireless technology first started to make waves in 2017, with connectivity tests in Argentina, Norway, and Poland. By late 2018, active 5G networks were starting to appear on a limited basis in various urban areas, and in 2019 the first nationwide networks went into operation in the US and China. As 2020 matures, industry analysts expect to see these networks expand, as providers move into the mid- and high-frequency bands.The new network rollout brings with it a slew of opportunities, as does any new technology. Original equipment manufacturers will need new components. The new networks will require a denser network of towers and transmitters, which in turn will require their own hardware. Semiconductor chip makers especially are looking forward to increased sales as the new equipment brings with it needs for updated and upgraded chips.To this end, we pulled up TipRanks’ database to learn more about two exciting plays in the 5G space. According to the Street, both of the Buy-rated stocks could win big as this new technology trend takes over. Let’s jump right in.Resonant Inc. (RESN)Operating on an IP licensing model, Resonant designs filters for radio frequency and front-ends for mobile devices. With the company expected to be a major beneficiary of the 5G rollout as the adoption of XBAR architectures in the mobile handset space ramps up, now could be the right time to pull the trigger.This is the stance taken by Needham’s Rajvindra Gill. The five-star analyst recently hosted a Zoom investor call with CEO George Holmes, and the analyst walked away more confident that the Chinese smartphone market is rebounding. Back in February, China handset shipments declined by 50% year-over-year, but consumer demand is on the rise once again. While not a full recovery as shipments in March 2020 are still down 20% year-over-year, the rate of decline is slowing, demonstrating that the situation is improving. This is significant as the company relies on China for a significant portion of its revenue.Expounding on the importance of the market recovery in China, Gill stated, “Through its partnership with Murata, the largest filter manufacturer in the world, RESN's XBAR technology is largely targeted towards Chinese handset OEMs and the Chinese handset market.” He added, “Moreover, RESN indicated that Tier-1 handset OEMs in China have not made any changes to their 5G handset roadmaps and still are on track to roll-out several 5G models.”Also encouraging, despite a slight deceleration in Europe, statements from base-station equipment vendors imply that globally, 5G infrastructure deployment is on track. This leaves the door open for RESN, according to Gill. “We view XBAR technology as critical for 5G mobile applications and well-positioned to handle the key 5G requirements of higher bandwidths, rejection of unwanted signals/ noise, and increases in antennas,” he commented.Based on all of the above, Gill’s bullish thesis remains very much intact. He kept both his Buy recommendation and $3 price target as is. This conveys his confidence in RESN’s ability to surge 20% in the next twelve months. (To watch Gill’s track record, click here)What does the rest of the Street think about RESN’s long-term growth prospects? It turns out that other analysts agree with Gill. The stock received 4 Buys in the last three months compared to no Holds or Sells, making the consensus rating a Strong Buy. At $2.74, the average price target brings the upside potential to 9%. (See Resonant stock analysis on TipRanks)Xilinx Inc. (XLNX)As for the second stock on our list, Xilinx is the leading supplier of programmable logic devices (PLDs), a rapidly expanding segment of the semiconductor industry. Given the current economic landscape, one analyst thinks that its standing sets it apart from other players in the space and positions it for success.Writing for Baird, five-star analyst Tristan Gerra argued, “Xilinx is very well positioned given the current macro environment given its lack of exposure to supply chain disruptions, fabless model not impacted by utilization rate fluctuations, and high infrastructure exposure with notably 5G infrastructure and video streaming which we see as beneficiaries of work-at-home trends.”While acknowledging that there has been some concern surrounding the level in which XLNX is participating in 5G infrastructure buildouts, Gerra cites its large-scale Samsung win for second-generation 5G as demonstrating the company’s focus on this part of the business. “We continue to believe FPGA opportunities in radioheads will remain long-lasting, while management continues to see 5G as a meaningfully larger opportunity than 4G,” he noted.Specifically looking at 5G as a growth driver for the company, XLNX is expected to participate in almost 40% of China Mobile's recent $5.3 billion tender. On top of this, next year, the company will grow its Versal lineup into a much broader product family. Gerra believes this underscores its market share gains.Even though the company’s fiscal Q1 2021 guidance calls for revenue and GAAP gross margin that comes in below Gerra’s forecasts, the analyst sees XLNX emerging as a long-term winner.As a result, Gerra stayed with the bulls, reiterating an Outperform rating and $105 price target. Should this target be met, a twelve-month gain of 16% could be in store. (To watch Gerra’s track record, click here)Looking at the consensus breakdown, other analysts’ opinions are more varied. 8 Buys, 8 Holds and 1 Sell add up to a Moderate Buy consensus rating. Additionally, the $94.88 average price target implies modest upside potential of 4%.

Stocks go up and stocks go down. But when it comes to the broad and volatile semiconductor sector, variability can even see both happen at the same time. Working to validate that track record are three popular semi stocks indicating investors should be ready to diversify long and short within this important group.It generally remains a smart approach to follow or invest alongside the broader averages. Over longer time frames and during more meaningful market cycles, most listed companies go along, up or down, with the S&P 500 or other broad-based indices. That's common knowledge. It's also why trading with the trend is popular, particularly in rising stock markets like today.In our estimation the current market environment is inviting investors to trade the market long. But as I've recently stressed here at InvestorPlace, trading selectively from the short side is making increasing sense.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 30 Consumer Stocks to Buy Once the Coronavirus Pandemic Passes Given this observation, as well as semi stocks' reputation for mixing it up in bull and bear markets, the following analysis takes a dive into two names to buy and one company whose shares are set up for shorting. * Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) * Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) * Xilinx (NASDAQ:XLNX)It's also true that within the market, semi stocks have a history of often testing bullish investors wherewithal. Even when the overall investing environment appears healthy, smaller business cycles, competition and near constant product innovation mean today's hot semiconductor company can quickly become tomorrow's bear, and vice versa. Semi Stocks to Trade: Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Source: Charts by TradingViewSemi stock Advanced Micro Devices is our first company to trade. And this semiconductor is a buy. The past few years have taken a company on life support with small chance for recovery and transformed it into the S&P 500's best performing stock. Shares have rocketed from around $2 in 2015 to a current market price near $55 that's just removed from all-time-highs.Bulls that rode shares higher can largely thank the smart leadership and execution of CEO Lisa Su. Over this period Advanced Micro Devices has successfully taken market share away from the likes of Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) with a myriad of competitive products across sub-markets in the industry. AMD isn't done either. Right now the price chart is indicating there's more to come.Technically, shares of AMD are forming a corrective three month long cup-shaped base within the stock's larger uptrend. It's bullish and looks more compelling as the price pattern has developed around the semi stock's prior all-time-high from 2000. Along with stochastics ready to reinforce Advanced Micro Devices' price tenacity upon signaling a bullish crossover and an earnings catalyst early next week, this semi stock is ready for upside action and new highs. I'm long, but smartly hedged and invite other investors to consider doing the same. Micron Technology (MU) Source: Charts by TradingViewThe next name on our list of semi stocks to trade are shares of Micron Technology. Investors can consider MU stock the epitome of price volatility. The outfit's memory markets have a history of erratic behavior on fast shifting supply and demand variables.That characteristic has been tamed somewhat in our ever-connected world. Still, MU remains one the more visible movers-and-shakers within the semiconductor industry. And in today's stock market, some nearby shaking to the downside is increasingly evident on the price chart.Technically, Micron stock has gone from a promising corrective cup-shaped basing pattern that began nearly two years ago to confirming a double top formation. * 30 Consumer Stocks to Buy Once the Coronavirus Pandemic Passes The monthly view of this MU stock seen above illustrates our concern. With the cup failure also occurring on a bearish trade-thru of MU's key 50% retracement level and stochastics pointing lower just out of overbought territory, the downside looks like unfinished business. Xilinx (XLNX) Source: Charts by TradingViewThe final stock on our list of semi stocks to trade is programmable chip manufacturer Xilinx. This less-talked about large-cap just released mixed quarterly results and reduced guidance going forward.That sounds less-than-inspirational. But companies have been known to sandbag. And given the novel coronavirus, my guess is Xilinx could be attempting to set investors up for future bullish surprises rather than more disappointment. The price chart agrees.Technically, shares of XLNX have established a meaningful corrective low on the monthly chart. April's rally has confirmed a bullish hammer candlestick which found long-term price support in-between the stock's 50% - 62% retracement levels tied to the 2008 financial crisis. The situation appears bullish, but there's more to Xilinx as well.The monthly price action has also tested Xilinx's lower Bollinger Band. That's good news. What's more, the volatile bottoming candle has successfully straddled a four-year long uptrend line after failing a shorter uptrend as shares corrected. Now, with earnings out of the way and stochastics successfully bottoming to support a low in shares, there's even more reasons to see this as a semi stock to buy.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management own positions in Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Micron (MU) shares and derivatives, but no other securities mentioned in this article.

Xilinx's (XLNX) fourth-quarter fiscal 2020 results witness a decline in the wired and wireless business and coronavirus-related disruptions.
The pandemic has ripped through the semiconductor industry, with lockdown orders interrupting operations and supply chains, even though many plants were eventually allowed to remain open. "I don't think anybody has a roadmap for where we are today," Chief Executive Officer Victor Peng told Reuters in an interview. Xilinx plans to be more conservative with buyback activity as it focuses on preserving capital and improving its liquidity position, Peng said on a call with analysts.
Xilinx (XLNX) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of 2.63% and 0.29%, respectively, for the quarter ended March 2020. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?
Xilinx Inc. shares declined in the extended session Wednesday after the chip maker's quarterly results topped Wall Street estimates but offered an outlook that did not. Xilinx shares declined 4% after hours, following a 5% rise in the regular session to close at $90.60.
