11:46 EDTKLAC, AIXG, INTC, QCOM, TSM, ASMLSemiconductor makers rally after earnings from TSMC, ASML
Taiwan Semi, also known as TSMC, reported Q4 earnings of 28c per ADR unit, matching consensus estimates, on revenue of NT$131.31B. Lora Ho, SVP and CFO of TSMC, said, “In the fourth quarter, demand for our products was higher than we expected three months ago, resulting in above-guidance revenue and profit margins. We now expect the supply chain inventory DOI to decline only slightly in the first quarter, and our revenue will also decline only slightly in the first quarter from the previous quarter." TSMC guided to Q1 revenue between NT$127B-NT$129B and an operating profit margin of 31.5%-33.5%. ASML also reported before today's opening bell, announcing Q4 adjusted EPS of EUR0.73, which was up from EUR0.67 in the prior quarter. ASML's Q4 revenue declined to EUR1.02B from EUR1.21B in the same quarter of last year. ASML also forecast its Q1 revenue to decline, but added it sees "a slow Q1 start, recovering in Q2 and a relatively large second half" in 2013. Also, shares of ASML were upgraded by research firm Bank of America Merrill Lynch this morning to Buy from Neutral. In late morning trading, shares of ASML rose about 7.6% to $68.70, while TSMC advanced over 2% to $18.18. Some other names rising in the semiconductors space included KLA-Tencor (KLAC), up 6.6% to $51.72, and Aixtron (AIXG), up 6% to $13.74. Shares of the largest players in the industry were higher as well, with Intel (INTC) up over 1% ahead of its earnings report, due out after the bell tonight, and Qualcomm (QCOM) up about 0.5% to $65.10.

Goldman downgraded the Semiconductors sector to Cautious given signs the cycle is turning based on expectations for a slowdown in semiconductor revenue growth, above trend semi unit shipments that should normalize, and stretching lead times. As a result, the analyst sees risk to Q4 estimates and sees further downside of 10%-25% for the SOX (SOX) and downgraded NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) to Sell from Neutral, InvenSense (INVN) to Neutral from Buy, and removed Maxim Integrated (MXIM) from the Conviction Buy List.
