The SMH is a useless ‘TELL’. Freaking Intel and some other old semi stocks like Applied Materials just count too much. My bad. The world has changed and I have been a tad lazy lately scouring for new ideas.
At least I own nVidia (NVDA). That’s our semiconductor bellweather now. If you own a fund and it owns Intel, fire the fund. Same for Microsoft. You have a lazy manager.
The gaming cycle is the real cycle and it’s just too big and strong and wide to stop. Home entertainment is not far behind, but it’s too convoluted and crowded with the big players.
I did own SIGM and we Wallstripped it back in November , but seeing that I counted is at a component play, I sold too early. The stock is hitting more all-time highs. Good.
Elsewhere in chipland, I am eyeballing WFR – also Wallstripped last week. It has quickly recovered most of it’s losses from the sub-prime swoon (like that can stop the solar move) and looks like a leader. Shoulda, coulda…
Also eyeballing MPWR (thanks ERIC) – lord knows what the hell it is they are doing, but it’s poised at all-time high land. I will likely take down a few shares for shits and giggles as it does.
Chips are also powering all the freaking unmanned warplanes and drones raining hell on our enemies. I have not done that much work in the space, but one look at UIC (thanks ERIC) which makes the drones makes me want to delve . I need more time…or some good feedback from you.
Screw the old time SOX index, there is massive strength in selected chips. Tech should be going higher over the medium term.
Disclosure- Long nVidia
