    Nvidia stock rises after analysts praise automotive opportunities

    Nvidia Corp. shares are up 2% in Tuesday morning trading after a pair of analysts expressed their optimism about the company. "Despite our view that 2018 will be a year of growing pains for semis, Nvidia's strength in AI today, and autonomous driving in the future, make it the king of this jungle in our view," wrote SunTrust Robinson Humphrey analyst William Stein. He's impressed with the company's recently announced partnerships with companies in the automotive space, including Volkswagen and Uber. "While autonomous driving technology was the hottest topic at the [CES] event, we also noticed that much of the discussion centered around co-pilot technology, including the Nvidia-powered Volkswagen ID Buzz," Stein wrote. He also likes the in-car infotainment system that Nvidia designed for Mercedes, as well as the company's discussion of its first Drive Xavier processors. Separately, analysts at Mizuho raised their price target on shares to $240 from $225, also citing automotive opportunities. Nvidia shares have gained 119% in the past 12 months, compared with a 23% rise for the S&P 500 Index and a 45% gain for the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Qualcomm stock rises after Instinet upgrades to buy

    Shares of Qualcomm Inc. rose 2.9% in Tuesday morning trading after analysts at Instinet upgraded the stock to buy from neutral. The analysts, led by Romit Shah, believe that Broadcom Ltd.'s attempt at a hostile takeover will light a fire under a management team they consider having been "unassertive" at times. "We expect the company to more aggressively focus on driving shareholder value in order to remain a standalone franchise," Shah wrote, including by closing the acquisition of NXP Semiconductors . He added that, while "not necessarily an immediate catalyst," Qualcomm might also consider settling its legal battle with Apple Inc. . "This would likely come as the strongest counter to Broadcom's attempt to buy the company," Shah wrote. Qualcomm also gave an overview of its 2017 financials in a filing released Tuesday. The company said it generated $23.2 billion in non-GAAP revenue for the year, above the FactSet consensus estimate of $22.8 billion. The company also sent a letter to shareholders asking them to reject Broadcom's takeover bid. Qualcomm shares have gained 4.6% so far this year, compared with a 4.9% rise for the S&P 500 Index and a 6.8% gain for the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index .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.

    Micron stock rises after analyst calls it a 'favored' name for 2018

    Shares of Micron Technology Inc. rose 1% in premarket trading Wednesday after analysts at Susquehanna Financial Group named the company one of their "favored" memory picks for 2018. "Cloud demand is expected to remain a key secular trend in '18 with ripple effects across the entire storage/memory supply chain," wrote the analysts, led by Mehdi Hosseini. "Data growth, and rapid migration of workloads from on-prem environments to public cloud, is not expected to abate, and we favor Micron and Western Digital Corp. as our top component names expected to benefit from cloud demand." Hosseini added that Facebook Inc. has announced plans to nearly double its capital expenditures for next year and Amazon.com continues to bring AWS to new regions. He's also upbeat about memory demand given increased interest in smartphone content. Micron shares have gained 91% so far in 2017, while WDC's stock is up 20%.

    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.

    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.
