12:06 EDTAMD, INTC, NVDAAMD, Nvidia retreat after analyst downgrades shares
Shares of computer chip makers AMD (AMD) and Nvidia (NVDA) are falling after research firm Pacific Crest downgraded the stocks, saying that they will be hurt by weak PC sales. WHAT'S NEW: The number of computers sold is likely to drop 5%-10% next quarter, due to weak consumer demand and excess inventory, motherboard makers said, according to Pacific Crest analyst Michael McConnell. About 45% of AMD's chips are incorporated into consumer desktops, while less than 5% of them are used in corporate PCs, McConnell stated. Additionally, notebook manufacturers reported that AMD is losing share to Intel (INTC) in notebooks that cost less than $399, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Nvidia (NVDA) has significantly increased sales targets for its high end Quadro graphics processing units this quarter, even though the high-end desktop GPU market is oversupplied, McConnell reported. As a result, the inventories of Nvidia's customers may be too high at the end of this quarter, the analyst warned. He downgraded AMD and Nvidia to Underperform from Sector Perform and kept a $35 price target and Outperform rating on Intel. The latter company is better positioned as it has less exposure to desktop PCs and benefits more from strong corporate PC demand than AMD and Nvidia, the analyst explained. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, AMD sank 3.5% to $3.95 and Nvidia fell 1.8% to $18.59, while Intel shares were little changed at $30.17.
