TSMC Stock Forecast: Why You Should Bet on TSMC

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s stock is down -22.78% from its 52-week high. TSM has upside potential from its big lead in semiconductor production process nodes.
  • The protracted delay of Intel’s 10-nanometer and 7-nanometer process nodes is a tailwind for TSMC.
  • TSMC is currently 7-nanometer node process foundry. It can command a higher contract price on any firm who wants to sell 7-nm processors.
  • TSMC has a small tailwind from IBM’s 7-nm datacenter chip. If this deal goes well, other ARM-based server builders might also hire TSMC as their exclusive foundry partner.
  • Intel’s difficulty in upgrading its factories to build 10-nm x86 processors could inspire AMD to request TSMC TO fast-track production of its 7-nm Ryzen processors with TSMC.

Micron Stock Analysis: Micron Has A Tailwind From Growing Mobile DRAM Revenue

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Ignore the noise/anxiety over China’s threat to file anti-trust charges against DRAM leaders like Micron. It is just China making retaliatory threats against Trump’s trade war words.
  • Better focus on the fact that mobile DRAM sales continue to surge. Growing mobile DRAM demand can offset declining prices of PC DRAM products.
  • Apple’s choice of Micron DRAM for its latest iPhones is a solid tailwind for Micron. Apple’s track record showed it can sell more than 50 million new iPhones per year.
  • Micron’s mass production of 10-nm 12GB LPDDR4X mobile DRAM should keep Apple as a customer for a long time.
  • MU has obvious notable upside potential because its valuation is way below than that of its peers in the semiconductor industry.

Microsoft Stock Forecast: Why On-Premise Office 2019 Is Still Important For Microsoft

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • I will upgrade my Office 2016 to the new 2019 version once Microsoft launches the home version. Office 2019 is currently only available for business users.
  • There are hundreds of millions like me who prefer the offline version of Microsoft’s productivity suite.
  • Microsoft will keep on updating its on premise Office suite because Office 365 is not going to reach 300 million active users anytime soon.
  • As of October 2018, there are only more than 135 million active commercial users of Office 365. This is in spite of its platform-agnostic design.
  • Businesses and ordinary Office users who do not rely too much on online collaboration will find it smarter to just a perpetual license for Office 2019.

Nvidia Stock Prediction: Buy Nvidia – Growing Gaming Revenue Can Easily Offset Cryptocurrency-Mining’s Decline

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Nvidia’s dropped almost 17% during the after-hours trading after its earnings report on November 15. This was mainly attributed to the demise of crypto-mining boom.
  • Nvidia’s Q3 non-GAAP EPS is $1.84, beats by $0.13. GAAP EPS was $1.97, beats by $0.26. Unfortunately, Nvidia’s Q3 revenue of $3.18 billion missed estimates by $60 million.
  • Q3’s GPU revenue from OEM was weaker than expected due to the absence of demand from crypto-currency mining. However, Gaming segment’s revenue of $1.3 billion was still up by 13% Y/Y.
  • My takeaway is that Nvidia is still worth betting on. The continuing growth in gaming revenue can make up for the lack of demand from crypto-currency mining.
  • AMD is still unable to reduce the more than 63% market share of Nvidia on discrete graphics processors. The best-selling computer graphics cards at Amazon are all using Nvidia GPU.
