10:34 EDTSSNLFSamsung confirms plans to exit LED lamps, Lighting says
Samsung (SSNLF) confirmed that it is exiting the global LED lamps business, according to industry site Lighting. The publication quotes the company as issuing the following statement: “We have decided to discontinue our LED lamp business in all markets, except Korea, so that we can focus more resources on our core business areas. We will remain active in the LED industry through our LED component business, and continue to provide high-quality products and services to our customers.” Philips’ (PHG) recent decision to split off its lighting division has been blamed, at least in part, on the commoditized nature of the consumer LED lamp market, Lighting added. Shares of Cree (CREE), whose products consist of both LED and traditional lighting systems, are up 1% in early trading following the news of Samsung's plans. Reference Link

10:10 EDTSTMChip makers rise following Skyworks positive preannouncement
Shares of a number of semiconductor makers are climbing after one of the companies in the sector, Skyworks (SWKS), preannounced stronger than expected results. WHAT'S NEW: Skyworks, which develops chips for cell phones, raised its fourth quarter earnings per share outlook to $1.08 from $1.00. Analysts' consensus estimate was $1.01. The chip maker increased its Q4 revenue guidance to $718M from $680M. Analysts' consensus estimate was $679.5M. "Skyworks’ upwardly revised outlook demonstrates the broad-based strength of our business and our ability to capitalize on positive underlying market trends to connect everyone and everything, all the time,” said Skyworks CEO David Aldrich. "These multi-year technology trends are setting the stage for us to outperform the broader semiconductor industry in the December quarter and for the foreseeable future," the CEO added. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Skyworks' positive report comes less than a week after another semiconductor maker, Microchip (MCHP), preannounced lower than expected revenue and said it thought the sector had entered a correction. Semiconductor stocks have sold off sharply since Microchip's preannouncement and pessimistic comments. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Skyworks surged 6.4% to $48.24, Intel (INTC) rose 1.5% to $31.94, NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) rose 1.2% to $54.55, STMicroelectronics (STM) advanced 2% to $6.82, and Avago Technologies (AVG) gained fractionally to $69.30.
