BUZZ-Chipmakers in 2019: "Stay cautious, bottom not in sight" - MS

Wed 19th December, 2018 12:30pm
** "It's going to get worse before it gets better" for
chipmakers globally in 2019, says Morgan Stanley, as weaker end
demand and inventory reductions lead to lowered estimates
    ** Since August nearly every key market, except wireless
infrastructure, has taken a turn for the worse, the brokerage
says, noting a slowdown in data center and industrial,
production cuts in auto and misses in smartphones
    ** Brokerage expects chipmaker revenue to decline 4.7 pct in
2019 – vs. prior view of a 1 pct drop – driven mostly by memory
declines, i.e. a 14 pct drop in NAND and 21 pct drop in DRAM rev
    ** Also notes a lack of valuation support, saying while
sentiment is negative and stocks are well off highs, they are
still up significantly over past few years with "no signs of
capitulation" even as estimates could come down
    ** MS 'cautious' on U.S. semi stocks, and 'in line' on U.S.
semicaps; turns 'cautious' on China on smartphone weakness;
'cautious' on Korea due to worsening memory business, but stays
'in line' on Japan semis
