Citi 'getting more nervous' on semiconductors after Asia trip
Following a trip last week to Asia meeting with companies across the technology supply chain, Citi analyst Christopher Danely says he's "getting more nervous" on the semiconductor sector. While demand from the PC end market remains strong, the NAND market remains weak and data points on Apple's (AAPL) iPhone were mixed, Danely tells investors in a research note. The analyst saw signs of an inventory build and believes upside to consensus estimates is declining. He feels momentum is slowing in the semiconductor space. Danely's top pick is Microchip (MCHP) and he's also Buy-rated on Texas Instruments (TXN), Applied Materials (AMAT), Nvidia (NVDA), Skyworks (SWKS), ON Semiconductor (ON) and Micron (MU). The analyst's checks indicate slower than expected iPhone X and 8 demand but stronger iPhone 7 demand. He views this as bad for Skyworks and Qorvo (QRVO) and good for Analog Devices (ADI).
