Analyst calls 'bottom' of IC downturn
November 07, 2011 // Dylan McGrath
The semiconductor industry downturn has hit bottom, and "phase one" of an upturn for chips has begun, according to a Wall Street analyst.
"We now believe we are in Phase I of the semiconductor upturnorders stabilizing," Danely wrote.
Danely reiterated JP Morgan's positive stance on the semiconductor sector and advised continued buying of chip stocks. He cited increased signs of a fundamental bottom and increasing likelihood of revisions to Wall Street estimates for chip firms during the first half of 2012.
Danely said that over the past few weeks, several chip companies and distributors, including Fairchild Semiconductor International Inc., Texas Instruments Inc., and Arrow Electronics Inc., have stated that they are experiencing a bottom in order rates. Arrow expects semiconductor manufacturers should see orders improve in the first quarter of 2012 and could strengthen further in the second quarter of 2012, Danely said.
Chip sales data from the Semiconductor Industry Association combined with fourth quarter guidance from chip firms indicates that semiconductor units should be flat to down during the second half of 2011, far below the expected 15 percent unit growth for PCs and 8 percent unit growth for handsets, according to Danely. He said JP Morgan analysts believe this is "hard evidence" that semiconductors are under-shipping end demand. This should lead to increased order rates in the first quarter of 2012, after end demand stabilizes due to inventory replenishment, Danely said.All news
