10:29 EDTAMD, INTC, IRF, MSCC, FSL, INVN, AVGO, NXPI, MXIMGoldman cuts sector view on semiconductors to Cautious
Goldman Sachs downgraded its rating on the semiconductor sector to Cautious from Neutral amid concerns that chips sales could weaken. WHAT'S NEW: In a number of key end markets, the growth of revenue from semiconductors is surpassing the growth of the markets themselves, Goldman analyst James Covello reported. In the automobile sector for example, semiconductor revenue growth has been 12% higher than the increase in the number of automobiles sold, the analyst reported. Moreover, the number of overall chips shipped was 5% over normalized demand levels this quarter, warned Covello. Consequently, the risk of semiconductor companies missing fourth quarter consensus estimates has increased, according to the analyst. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Covello downgraded his rating on two companies in the sector, lowering NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) to Sell from Neutral and cutting InvenSense (INVN) to Neutral from Buy. He removed Maxim Integrated (MXIM) from the firm's Conviction List but kept a Buy rating on the shares. In addition to Maxim, Covello also has relatively upbeat outlooks on Avago (AVGO), Freescale (FSL), and Microsemi (MSCC). He kept Sell ratings on Intel (INTC), AMD (AMD) and International Rectifier (IRF). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, NXP Semiconductors fell 4% to $61 and InvenSense dropped 2.5% to $24.40. Avago and Freescale fell slightly, while Microsemi, Intel, AMD, and International Rectifier rose slightly.
