Will the stocks of semiconductor producers rebound soon?

2021-06-17 • Updated

The amount of problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic is huge. One of them is the global shortage of computer chips that started a year ago. At first, it looked like a temporary delay in supplies after factories faced first lockdowns. As the economies reopened, a boom in demand for new electronic devices, games consoles, and TVs was growing so fast it could not meet the supply. As a result, such big names as Apple, Sony, and Samsung had to raise prices for their products. Samsung even delayed the launch of its new Galaxy Note smartphone because of disruption in supplies.

The global chip shortage added pressure to the stocks of the semiconductor producers. However, after the storm comes sunny weather, according to the CFRA Research. The company sees this delay as a temporary one and expects good results from several companies operating in this sector. The main reason behind this possible stabilization lies in the development of artificial intelligence (AI).

The AI development and integration will create the strongest trend that ever existed in the semiconductor industry. CFRA Research forecasts the number of semiconductors per unit to show a 13% yearly increase in the next five years.  Given these facts, which companies should you start to track before it’s too late?
