Broadcom CEO says the semiconductor sector has hit bottom

semiconductor stocks
From Jeremy C. Owens: Semiconductor stocks were collectively trading about 3.5% higher Friday morning, after Broadcom Inc. AVGO, +10.09% results calmed some fears about the sector and the company's chief executive said that a downturn had reached its bottom. The PHLX Semiconductor Index SOX, +3.09% rose 3.5% in the first hour of trading and all 30 components were trading higher, led by Broadcom, which was up more than 11%. After Broadcom released earnings that were slightly better than expected Thursday after markets closed, Chief Executive Hock Tan said in a conference call, "We expect our semiconductor business to bottom in the second fiscal quarter driven almost entirely by the seasonal drop in Wireless. But looking to H2, we are confident the semiconductor business will resume very meaningful growth." That sentiment mirrors what other executives have said about a current down cycle for chip sales, including Microchip Technology Inc.MCHP, +2.31% CEO Steve Sanghi, who called a bottom last week and has a history of correctly predicting swings in the semiconductor sector. Besides Broadcom, chip-equipment stocks were hot, with Lam Research Corp.LRCX, +4.47% MKS Instruments Inc. MKSI, +7.77% ASML Holdings NVASML, +4.44% and Applied Materials Inc. AMAT, +3.85% increasing more than 4% Friday morning. The PHLX Semiconductor Index has declined 5% in the past year amid concerns about the chip sector, as the S&P 500 index SPX, +0.41% has gained 2.2%.

Semiconductor ETF sees large Inflow

money flowing bills
From ETF Channel: Exchange traded funds (ETFs) trade just like stocks, but instead of ''shares'' investors are actually buying and selling ''units''. These ''units'' can be traded back and forth just like stocks, but can also be created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. Each week we monitor the week-over-week change in shares outstanding data, to keep a lookout for those ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed). Creation of new units will mean the underlying holdings of the ETF need to be purchased, while destruction of units involves selling underlying holdings, so large flows can also impact the individual components held within ETFs.
