16:22 EDTINTCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street had a bit of a see-saw trading day, but ended the session in the red once again. The Nasdaq took the brunt of the losses, falling over 2%, while the Dow's slide erased its gains for the year. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the import price index fell 0.5% in September, versus expectations for a 0.7% decline. Oil slumped to a four-year low during the session, as brent crude touched $88.11 intra-day, its lowest level since December 2010. COMPANY NEWS: The semiconductor sector was weak across the board after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector has entered a correction. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it does business with over 80,000 customers and that it built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future.” Microchip, which also pre-announced weaker than expected second quarter revenue, dropped $5.58, or 12.26%, to $39.96. Intel (INTC) fell $1.71, or 5.09%, to $31.91, Avago (AVGO) declined $9.24, or 11.46%, to $71.36, Texas Instruments (TXN) slipped $3.28, or 7.13%, to $42.74 and Micron (MU) dropped $2.71, or 8.86%, to $27.93. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exact Sciences (EXAS), which rallied $6.48, or 35.76%, to $24.60 after the company announced last night that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, had agreed to cover the company's colorectal cancer and pre-cancer test through Medicare. Also higher was Dave & Buster (PLAY), which gained $1.28 to $17.28 after commencing trading on the Nasdaq following its initial public offering. Among the noteworthy losers was Procera Networks (PKT), which was downgraded by at least four research firms and plunged $2.85, or 33.33%, to $5.70 after the company warned its Q3 revenue will miss expectations. Also lower were shares of Caesars (CZR), which dropped $1.92, or 17.36%, to $9.14 after disclosing in a regulatory filing that its Chief Accounting Officer resigned to accept a position with another company. INDEXES: The Dow fell 115.15, or 0.69%, to 16,544.10, the Nasdaq plunged 102.10, or 2.33%, to 4,276.24, and the S&P 500 dropped 22.08, or 1.15%, to 1,906.13.

13:08 EDTINTCOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and saw several swings throughout the morning. Near midday the averages were mixed, with the Dow a bit higher and the Nasdaq weighed down by weakness across the semiconductor sector. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the import price index fell 0.5% in September, versus expectations for a 0.7% decline. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of semiconductor makers, including industry giant Intel (INTC), were sharply lower after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector has entered a correction. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it does business with over 80,000 customers and that it built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future.” Near noon, Microchip dropped 11%, Intel fell almost 4%, Texas Instruments (TXN) slipped over 6%, Micron (MU) dropped 6% and Fairchild (FCS) declined 12%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exact Sciences (EXAS), which rallied 35% after the company announced last night that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, had agreed to cover the company's colorectal cancer and pre-cancer test through Medicare. Among the noteworthy losers were a number of companies that, similarly to Microchip, warned that their quarterly results will likely miss expectations, including Procera Networks (PKT), which plunged 34%, Manitowoc (MTW), which fell 9%, and Sizmek (SZMK), which dropped 21%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 38.02, or 0.23%, to 16,697.27, the Nasdaq was down 35.89, or 0.82%, to 4,342.45, and the S&P 500 was up 0.42, or 0.02%, to 1,928.63.
10:29 EDTINTCMicrochip CEO warning on industry correction sinks semiconductors
Shares of a number of semiconductor makers are falling sharply after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector had entered a correction. In a note to investors today, research firm FBR Capital said Microchip's comments "could be worrisome, " and the firm responded by taking a more defensive stance on the space. WHAT'S NEW: Microchip, which develops microcontroller and analog semiconductors, estimated that its second quarter revenue would come in at $546.2M, versus its previous guidance of $560.0M-$575.9M and analysts' consensus estimate of $568M. The company said that it had experienced a number of negative trends during the quarter, including a weaker than usual September, weakness in China, and significant inventory builds at its distributor customers. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it reports sales from distribution on a sell-through basis and built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter and that it does business with over 80,000 customers. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future.” ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, FBR Capital analyst Christopher Rolland said that Microchip's statements come in the wake of other negative signs for the sector. In August and September, lead times for the sector fell versus the month before, the analyst stated. Additionally, revenue trends at Taiwanese chip makers weakened in August, Rolland stated. The analyst said that Microchip's statements pushed him over the fence, causing him to take a more defensive stance on the sector. He removed ON Semiconductor (ONNN) from FBR's Top Picks list but kept an Outperform rating on the stock, as he believes that its valuation is "very reasonable." Rolland maintained Market Perform ratings on Atmel (ATML), Texas Instruments (TXN), Fairchild (FCS), AMD (AMD), and Applied Micro Circuits (AMCC). Sterne Agee also attributed weakness in the sector to Microchip's warnings, but the firm recommended buying NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), Avago (AVGO), and Skyworks (SWKS) due to their strong product cycles with EMV and upcoming iPhone-iPad launches from Apple (AAPL). In addition, the firm said it would buy Micron (MU) and SanDisk (SNDK) given tight supply, below normal inventory levels, and tailwinds from China. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Microchip dropped nearly 14% to $39.29, Intel (INTC) fell almost 6% to $31.67, On Semiconductor slid 10% to $7.53, Atmel tumbled 11.5% to $6.61, Texas Instruments slipped 8% to $42.16, Fairchild slumped 10.6% to $12.95, AMD dropped 6% to $2.77, Applied Micro declined 10% to $6.19, and NXP Semiconductors was 14% lower to $55.27.
