14:00 EDTALTR, XLNX, INTC, TSMIntel, Altera advance after announcing semiconductor pact
Intel (INTC) and Altera (ALTR) are climbing after the two companies last night announced that Altera had agreed to use Intel's 14 nanometer tri-gate transistor technology to develop its programmable semiconductors. Altera's semiconductors target ultra high-performance systems for military, wireline communications, cloud networking, and compute and storage applications, the companies stated. "Next-generation products from Altera require the highest performance and most power-efficient technology available, and Intel is well positioned to provide the most advanced offerings," Intel COO Brian Krzanich stated. In a note to investors earlier today, Citigroup analyst Glen Young wrote that the deal is positive for both Intel and Altera. Intel obtained its first deal to develop semiconductors for another company at healthy margins, while Altera gained access to differentiating technology, Young believes. Intel's tri-gate technology is expected to deliver a 50% decrease in active power consumption, a 10x reduction in idle power consumption, and/or a 37% improvement in chip performance, the analyst explained. Meanwhile, the deal may carry margins as high as the mid-50s percentage range for Intel, added Young. One company that may not look favorably upon the deal is Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSM). The latter company has dominated semiconductor development and develops semiconductors for Altera, Stifel Nicolaus analyst Patrick Ho wrote in a note to investors earlier today. If Intel chooses to enter full force into the business of developing semiconductors for other companies, TSM would lose its edge in this business, Ho believes. In mid-afternoon trading, Intel climbed 2.70% to $20.80, Altera rose 2.8% to $36, and Taiwan Semiconductor fell 2.5% to $17.75. Meanwhile, Xilinx (XLNX), which also develops programmable semiconductors, lost 2% to $36.60.
