TSMC, Samsung to compete for 5G modem orders, Digitimes reports

TSMC (TSM) and Samsung Foundry (SSNLF) have both provided updates on their EUV process technologies and are preparing for a pick-up in replacement demand for smartphones driven by 5G connectivity, Digitimes' Monica Chen and Jessie Shen report, citing the industry observers. TSMC has already secured orders from HiSilicon and MediaTek for their 5G modems and is believed to be competing with rival Samsung for Qualcomm's (QCOM) orders. Reference Link

AMD rallies after Cowen names a best idea for 2019
Shares of AMD (AMD) are moving higher after Cowen named the stock one of its best ideas for 2019. Despite some "well-known" graphics processing unit headwinds in the first half of 2019, AMD will see an "important revenue inflection" in the second half of the year as its fully refreshed lineup moves from 14nm to 7nm at TSMC (TSM), Cowen analyst Matthew Ramsay told investors earlier in a research note. He believes this will mark AMD's first manufacturing advantage versus competitor Intel (INTC). The analyst thinks Intel's Moore's Law advantages entering 2019 "have been largely eroded and should open opportunities" for AMD and other competitors on the 7nm node at TSMC. These opportunities could materialize across AMD's business and "re-shift investor focus toward the longer-term opportunity versus near-term GPU headwinds," contends Ramsay. The analyst has an Outperform rating on AMD with a $26 price target. The stock in morning trading is up 3%, or 54c, to $20.53.

TSMC downgraded to Underperform from Outperform at CLSA
CLSA downgraded TSMC to Underperform from Outperform and cut its price target on the stock to NT$211 from NT$240 after the company reported Q4 results and guided 2019 revenue to grow slightly, outperforming the semis industry. While the firm recommends owning TSMC for the long term, it said this downcycle keeps tracking worse than expected and said "no one is immune - not even TSMC."

Texas Instruments, TSMC, Lam among Citi's top global Semi picks for 2019
Citi's global top picks in Semiconductors are Texas Instruments (TXN), TSMC (TSM), Sony (SNE), Samsung (SSNLF), ASML (ASML), and Lam Research (LRCX), analysts led by Christopher Danely tell investors in a research note. Citi is "becoming more constructive as fundamentals are bottoming and semis are shipping below demand." The firm expects revenue for the Semiconductor sector in 2019 to decline 7% year-over-year, down from 15% year-over-year growth in 2018, due to the "memory crash dragging down overall sales." If China goes into recession, Citi believes semis will see "another big leg down." If not, the firm expects upside in the second half of 2019.

FormFactor price target raised to $21 from $18 at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Thomas Diffely raised his price target on FormFactor (FORM) to $21 and kept his Buy rating after meeting with its management at an investor event last week. The analyst says investors were "pleasantly surprised" by the stability of the company's "design driven model" during industry slowdowns, adding that he sees FormFactor's "unique business drivers" being "larger then expected". Diffely further cites a potential revenue recovery at Intel (INTC), continued revenue growth at TSMC (TSM), and ramping activity from 5G and photonic" markets in concluding that FormFactor's growth prospects look "increasingly bullish".

ASML price target raised to $225 from $195 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mitch Steves raised his price target on ASML (ASML) to $225 and kept his Outperform rating ahead of its March quarter earnings. The analyst expects the results to be "largely in-line" but also contain bullish commentary for the second half of 2019, which he sees as a "focal point given investor focus on Extreme UltraViolet, or EUV, ramps" to finish this year. Steves adds that he is positive on the EUV demand debate, with his checks suggesting that the 5nm products are "tracking to plan". The analyst further points to "recent news articles suggesting that Samsung (SSNLF) is ramping up EUV-related CapEx."

Apple iPhone inventory/demand remains stable, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh says his latest carrier checks indicate Apple (AAPL) iPhone inventories have stabilized in March with sell-through tracking largely in line with stores' expectation. Meanwhile, feedback on the Samsung (SSNLF) GS10 has been "overwhelmingly positive," as most stores believe the new features have been a factor in driving sales, and keeping inventories at healthy levels, he contends. Given stabilizing iPhone trends and better than expected GS10 demand, the analyst sees favorable risk/reward for the mobile supply chain. Vinh recommends investors buy Broadcom (AVGO) and Qorvo (QRVO).

Cowen says Pure Storage benefits from NAND oversupply, upgrades to Outperform
Cowen analyst Karl Ackerman upgraded Pure Storage to Outperform from Market Perform as he expects Samsung (SSNLF), which controls about 38% of the NAND market, to maximize share over profits, which he thinks should push NAND prices down at least 40% for calendar 2019. Pure Storage (PSTG) is the most significant beneficiary of this dynamic and a "pure play" on NAND oversupply, said Ackerman, who sees demand elasticity for all-flash arrays, most notably Pure Storage's all-flash array portfolio. He raised his price target on Pure Storage shares to $30 from $20, stating that he believes the company's transformation toward a Storage-As-A-Service model warrants a higher stock multiple.

DRAM monthly contract pricing declined sharply again in March, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Weston Twigg notes that inSpectrum released its March monthly memory contract pricing this morning, with price declines in line with expectations. The analyst anticipates DRAM price declines to continue through the second half of 2019, though the rate of decline will likely decelerate. Twigg also anticipates NAND bit supply growth to drop below 30% on a year over year basis in the second half of the year due to scaling inefficiencies and limited capacity expansion. Despite near-term demand headwinds in both DRAM and NAND, he continues to anticipate meaningful long-term demand growth as new demand drivers, such as 5G, hyperscale, and edge/endpoint devices, continue to expand. Further, the analyst views the DRAM market as likely healthier and more profitable than NAND over the long run given just three main producers - Micron (MU), Samsung (SSNLF), and SK Hynix -, strong long-term demand drivers, and rational capacity expansion. However, NAND pricing could stabilize sooner than DRAM, and NAND shortages may emerge as early as Q3, he adds.

Qualcomm upgraded to Outperform following Apple settlement at Evercore ISI
As previously reported, Evercore ISI upgraded Qualcomm (QCOM) to Outperform from In Line and raised its price target to $90 from $60 following the settlement with Apple (AAPL). Analyst C.J. Muse expects Qualcomm's earnings power to move "considerably higher" with incremental earnings of $2 from Apple and sees normalized earnings of $6.50-$7 into FY21 when including Huawei payments and buybacks. Muse said shares are "finally invertible again" now that the litigation is over combined with a clear path for the 5G ramp.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan and to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI. 2. Domino's Pizza (DPZ) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst John Glass saying he thinks the stock's current price reflects 2-3% blended global same store sales growth over the next two years, which he views as too bearish based on its track record as a "best in class operator." 3. TSYS (TSS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst James Schneider saying the company's new portfolios are driving revenue growth while improving margin expansion is driving earnings acceleration. 4. Omnicom (OMC) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays. 5. Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Jade Rahmani saying she sees an attractive entry point following the recent underperformance of the shares.
