10:29 EDTIRF, MSCC, AMD, INTC, NXPI, MXIM, FSL, INVN, AVGOGoldman 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.

Citi lowered its estimates for Maxim Integrated to reflect what it believes to be slowing demand for Samsung's Galaxy S6 smartphone. Maxim derives around 8% of its 2015 revenue from the Galaxy S6, the firm points out. The estimate cuts come after Citi's Samsung analyst lowered his 2015 Galaxy S6 shipment estimate by 14% due to weaker demand in Q2. The firm points out its checks also indicate Maxim could lose content in the next generation Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone in 2016. It keeps a Neutral rating on the stock with a $35 price target.
