    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.

    Micron's stock tumbles to kick off just 3rd official 'pullback' during 1 1/2-year long bull market

    Micron Technology Inc.'s stock tumbled 7.3%, as it headed for a third-straight loss since closing at a 17-year high on Friday, amid some near-term concerns over memory chip pricing. KeyBanc Capital analyst Weston Twigg reiterated his sector weight rating on Micron ahead Thursday's release of November monthly contract data pricing for dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) and NAND memory chips. "Despite good long-term memory trends, we see neutral to negative dynamics in the near- to midterm for NAND, and neutral dynamics for DRAM," Twigg wrote in a note to clients. The stock has shed 10.5% this week, which puts it on track to record just its third pullback since its current bull market began in May 2016. Many on Wall Street view a decline of 10% or more from a significant peak as an official pullback, while declines of at least 20% are bear markets. Micron's other pullbacks were the 15.4% drop from June 26, 2017 to Aug. 10, and the 16.5% decline from June 23, 2016 to July 6, 2016. From the May 13, 2016 bear market bottom of $9.56, the stock had rocketed more than five-fold to Friday's record close of $49.68. Over the past three months, Micron's stock was still up 41%, while the PHLX Semiconductor Index has climbed 17% and the S&P 500 has gained 7.4%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
