AMD, Nvidia have surged in part from ethereum miners, Bloomberg says

Some investors are likening the chip makers Nvidia (NVDA) and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) to sellers of pickaxes and shovels during California's Gold Rush, says Bloomberg. The chips are used in computers to mine ethereum, a cryptocurrency "that can be used to buy computing power over the internet," added the report. According to the Bloomberg report, Michael McConnell, an analyst at Pacific Crest Securities wrote in a recent note, "The sharp increase in demand from cryptocurrency miners has rapidly depleted excess channel inventory" for Nvidia and AMD graphics cards. Surging demand from cryptocurrency miners in China and Eastern Europe since early May" will boost quarterly unit sales by as much as 20%." Reference Link

JPMorgan raises semiconductor market forecasts after strong May

AMD could see better than expected 2H revenues, says Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Vijay Rakesh said AMD could see better than expected second half 2017 revenues due to better PC demand, gaming console seasonality, new Ryzen/Vega product ramps, and Bitcoin related shortages in GPUs for mining. The analyst raised AMD's price target to $15 from $14 and reiterates his Buy rating.

Intel downgraded to Underperform from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis downgraded Intel (INTC) to Underperform, his firm's equivalent of a sell rating, and cut his price target for the shares to $29 from $38. Intel closed Friday up 25c to $33.88. The chipmaker's Xeon/Xeon PHI platform is disadvantaged versus Nvidia (NVDA) in emerging parallel workloads like deep neural networking, Lipacis tells investors in a research note. He believes Intel, as the incumbent with dominant share, has the most to lose as the industry undergoes a "tectonic shift in computing toward a parallel model." Intel is losing share in datacenter to Nvidia while chip competition from AMD (AMD), Cavium (CAVM) and Xilinx (XLNX) is increasing, the Lipacis argues.

Nvidia reiterated as a top pick at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Vivek Arya said a proprietary update of the PC GPU market reinforced his positive view on Nvidia (NVDA) given material tailwinds from new title launches and the rise of eSports, combined with second half seasonal strength in the secularly growing gaming market. The analyst's key takeaways from the update are: stream data indicates a significant upgrade opportunity for Pascal and upcoming next-gen Volra GPU, ecommerce survey work indicates Nvidia maintains 100% share of top selling GPU cars, with ASPs up 23% month-over-month, Nintendo Switch demand remains an incremental growth driver, and gaming strength is still underappreciated. Arya reiterates Nvidia as a Buy rating and a top pick, with a $185 price target.

Nvidia upgraded on ability to beat estimates, increase multiple at SunTrust
As noted earlier, SunTrust upgraded Nvidia to Buy from Hold. Analyst William Stein upgraded the stock as he thinks that most of the company's segments can deliver stronger than expected financial results. He is especially upbeat on its datacenter for AI applications. Additionally, he thinks that the company's P/E multiple will rise because few large-cap semi companies offer structural growth, Target to $177 from $124.

IBM price target lowered to $125 from $135 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst James Kisner lowered his price target for IBM (IBM) to $125 and reiterates an Underperform rating on the shares. While channel checks indicate IBM's Watson platform remains one of the most complete cognitive platforms available in the marketplace today, the "hefty services" component of many artificial intelligence deployments will be a hindrance to adoption, Kisner tells investors in a research note titled "Creating Shareholder Value with AI? Not so Elementary, My Dear Watson." The analyst also believes IBM looks "outgunned in the war" for AI talent and will likely see increasing competition. Kisner adds that his firm believes Nvidia (NVDA) is the biggest beneficiary of ramping AI adoption. He lists Pure Storage (PSTG) and Mellanox (MLNX) as other beneficiaries.
