11:42 EDTTXN, INTC, MU, AMD, BRCMAMD plummets after profit miss, analyst downgrades
Shares of semiconductor manufacturer Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) are sinking after the company’s second quarter profit trailed analysts’ consensus estimates. It also received several analyst downgrades. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Advanced Micro Devices reported second quarter adjusted EPS of 2c and revenue of $1.44B, compared to analysts’ consensus estimates of 3c and $1.44B. Q2 gross margin was 35%. WHAT’S NOTABLE: For the third quarter, AMD expects revenue to increase 2%, plus or minus 3%, sequentially, compared to consensus of $1.57B. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was mixed. FBR Capital downgraded AMD to Market Perform from Outperform citing a lack of earnings visibility following the company's weaker than expected Q3 outlook. The firm lowered its price target for the shares to $4.50 from $6. Another firm, BofA/Merrill, also downgraded AMD to Underperform from Neutral. The firm downgraded shares and lowered estimates to reflect weak guidance and lack of visibility. It lowered its price target to $4 from $4.50. Conversely, Wedbush said AMD’s fundamentals remain intact. After AMD reported lower than expected Q2 pro forma EPS, Wedbush says that Q2 was the fourth consecutive quarter for which the company demonstrated profitability, tight OpEx controls, and continued product execution. It thinks these trends are significantly positive and kept an Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, AMD fell 81c, or about 17.6%, to $3.77 on nearly three times its average daily trading volume. Including today’s pull back, the stock has lost approximately 19% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the semiconductor space include Intel (INTC), Broadcom (BRCM), Micron Technology (MU), and Texas Instruments (TXN).

08:13 EDTTXN, AMDJefferies ups view on Semis to Positive from Negative
Jefferies upped its view on the Semiconductors space to Positive from Negative after hosting a dozen companies at its annual conference in Miami. The firm notes that most companies noted an "OK" demand environment, which it views as supporting its thesis that the recent inventory correction and lower capex has created a "great opportunity" to add to Semi positions. After meeting with management, Jefferies has increased conviction that NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) will soon sell its HPRF business and return to its stock buyback program before most expect. It has Buy ratings on AMD (AMD), Microchip (MCHP), NXP and Texas Instruments (TXN).

ISS and Glass, Lewis & Co, two influential proxy advisory firms, are recommended Intel (INTC) investors vote against the reelection of eBay (EBAY) CEO John Donahoe to the company's board, The Wall Street Journal reports. Citing what it characterized as a poor attendance record, Glass Lewis commented "We view this as a failure by this director to fulfill a fundamental responsibility to represent shareholders at such meetings," while ISS said Donahoe "lacked a valid excuse" for attending less than 75% of the meetings held by the Intel board and committees he serves on in 2014. Intel's annual shareholders meeting is scheduled for May 21. Reference Link
