    Chip pricing trends could boost AMD, Nvidia and Micron results: analyst

    Chip pricing trends remain strong, according to Mizuho analyst Vijay Rakesh, and he thinks that could bode well for Advanced Micro Devices Inc. , Nvidia Corp. , Micron Technology Inc. and Western Digital Corp. in the first half of the year. Sold-state drive (SSD) pricing looks "robust," Rakesh wrote, and "should be a tailwind for Micron and WDC." Meanwhile, regarding graphics processing unit (GPU) pricing, Rakesh thinks the trends continue to suggest "tight inventory and availability." Accordingly, he sees upside potential for Nvidia's and AMD's GPU segments for the December and March quarters. "We believe it is key to understand that pricing reflects more of a stronger GPU demand and tight GPU inventory than a pricing tailwind," he added. Nvidia shares are up 113% over the last 12 months, while AMD's stock is up 28%. The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index has risen 49% in that time, compared with a 24% gain for the S&P 500 .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    AMD stock jumps after Macquarie upgrade

    Shares of Advanced Micro Devices rose 4.7% in Monday morning trading after analysts at Macquarie Research upgraded the stock to neutral from underperform. While the analysts, led by Srini Pajjuri, see "headwinds" in the cryptocurrency market and predict only moderate share gains in both PCs and graphics processing units (GPUs), they're more upbeat about other aspects of the business, including the opportunity for growth in average selling prices [ASP] and a recent partnership with Intel Corp. . The firm predicts "further ASP tailwinds in GPUs driven by Apple iMac Pro win and the recent Intel partnership (for gaming notebooks)." The analysts also see potential for AMD's server business, thanks to "encouraging" arrangements with Microsoft Inc. , Baidu Inc. , and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. , though they caution that share gains will take time. They raised their price target on shares to $11, from $10.

    Nvidia crypto mining opportunities likely to persist in 2018: analyst

    Analysts at RBC Capital Markets think that Nvidia Corp. will continue to benefit from the mining of cryptocurrencies in 2018, even if the Ethereum blockchain moves past the use of graphics-processing units as Bitcoin has. The analysts pointed out that there are plenty of newer cryptocurrencies for which miners could use GPUs, including monero, bitcoin gold and ethereum classic. "The near-term dynamics remain positive and without a material change to the algorithm we find it highly unlikely the opportunity goes to zero next year," they wrote in a note to clients Tuesday. "Importantly, even if the algorithms change to proof of stake long term, we believe that the need to build out a decentralized world computer will command material compute power benefiting companies such as Nvidia," they added. Susquehanna analyst Chris Rolland made a similar point about Nvidia and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. in a Tuesday note, pointing out that Ethereum joining Bitcoin as an ASIC-driven mining task would be a "modest negative" for those two companies. Nvidia shares have gained 75% so far this year, while the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index is up 36% and the S&P 500 is up 19%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    AMD, Nvidia stocks fall as analyst says AI will need different chips in 2018

    Shares of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Nvidia Corp. fell 1.7% and 1.3%, respectively, in Tuesday morning trading, after analysts at Susquehanna suggested that application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) could become more important than graphics processing units (GPUs) for 2018. "Nvidia was in the right place at the right time," wrote the analysts, led by Christoper Rolland, as its GPUs made for gaming purposes proved useful for complex artificial-intelligence tasks as well. "However, our discussions with numerous thought leaders in the industry suggest ASICs may replace much of today's GPU infrastructure over time," he added. Plus, GPUs could become less useful for the mining of cryptocurrencies in 2018, according to Rolland. AMD shares have fallen 12% so far in 2017, compared with an 80% gain for Nvidia shares. The S&P 500 is up 19% this year, while the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index has gained 37%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Nvidia benefits from rising cryptocurrency prices, analyst says

    A "notable shift" higher in cryptocurrency prices should be good for chip maker Nvidia Corp. , RBC Capital Markets analyst Mitch Steves said in a note Friday. A sharp rise for digital currency like ether, Monero, zCash and bitcoin gold in the past three weeks has helped bring down the time gap between mining these currencies and getting paid, Steves contends, which should at least maintain demand for Nvidia graphics processing units miners are using. "For illustrative purposes, when the price of Ethereum was at $300 the payback period was ~9.4 months; today, it is now ~5.6 months--a change we view as material," Steves wrote. Nvidia, as well as rival Advanced Micro Devices Corp. , have received a boost this year from sales to cryptocurrency miners, who use their GPUs to help create the digital currency. Nvidia shares have more than doubled this year and AMD shares are up 0.2% while the S&P 500 index has gained 16%. RBC has a buy rating and $250 price target on Nvidia stock, which was trading about 0.8% higher Friday. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Nvidia stock options traders brace for some post-earnings volatility

    Traders of Nvidia Corp.'s stock options are anticipating a little more than average volatility in the stock after the graphics chip maker reports fiscal third-quarter results Thursday, after the closing bell. An options strategy known as a "straddle," which involves the simultaneous buying of bullish call and bearish put options at the same price, is pricing in a one-day post-earnings move of 7.5% in either direction on Friday. That compares with an average move of 7.3% over the past eight years. Over the past 32 quarters, the stock rose the day after earnings 20 times and fell 12 times. The average move for the stock on an up day was 8.8% while the average decline has been 4.8%, according to an analysis of FactSet data and SEC filings. The day after rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc. reported third-quarter results, after the Oct. 24 close, its stock had tumbled 13.5%. On Tuesday, Nvidia's stock was up 1.1% in afternoon trade. It has run up 23% over the past three months, while the PHLX Semiconductor Index has climbed 20% and the S&P 500 has gained 4.3%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    AMD's stock tumbles after 'meh' gross margin outlook offsets 'solid' earnings beat

    Shares of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. tumbled 9.8% in very active premarket trade, as the chip maker's better-than-expected results and outlook weren't quite good enough to support recent sharp gains. Volume bulged to over over 3.9 million shares a little over an hour before the open, making the stock the most actively traded in the premarket. Stifel Nicolaus analyst Kevin Cassidy said the third-quarter beat was "solid," but gross margin expansion was just "meh." He reiterated his hold rating, saying the lack of sequential gross margin expansion "has us questioning" how customers are valuing AMD's new products, or whether market acceptance is slower than anticipated. Susquehanna's Christopher Rolland kept his rating at neutral, saying he was also disappointed in the gross margin outlook. He said that although the overall fourth-quarter outlook beat expectations, he was disappointed that it indicated AMD's core business was decelerating, and suggested a "marked slowdown" in cryptocurrency-related sales. The stock has run up 26% year to date through Tuesday, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 has rallied 25% and the S&P 500 has gained 15%.
