Company Overview and News
Technology is the future. Analog devices (ADI) understood that concept a long time ago. While beginning in 1965, its history is full of innovative concepts that are still useful today in many aspects of our tech-filled lives. After finalizing its acquisition of Linear Technology Corporation in 2017, ADI is now aggressively pursuing the semiconductor industry. The company’s success doesn’t rely solely on innovation.
It’s been an outstanding run for technology, especially semiconductors. Given the important role the industry plays in our economy, it probably has legs. With that in mind, after a multiyear run, it’s smart for investors to be very selective when putting down their bets, especially in the chip arena.

If there is any industry for which red flags are starting to fly above most Wall Street firms, it’s semiconductors, and with good reason. Semiconductor stocks have produced blistering results over the past few years, and experienced investors are well aware of the cyclical nature of that industry. Without using the dreaded “It’s different this time,” it should be noted that demand in many new areas has skyrocketed and is expected to remain.

All great cycles come to an end, or at the minimum, slow down to more normal growth, and in the case of the semiconductors, it has been the kind of run that few tech sectors have seen in years. While the future remains bright, it may not be the white-hot bright of the past five years that produced outsized gains for investors.

While Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is a dominant technology player, it also tends to have peaks and valleys in its various business lines, which can expose vendors to inconsistent orders and earnings. Plus, the company announced recently it is planning to use its own chips in Macintosh computers starting in 2020. So for technology investors looking to stay on what has been a very hot semiconductor ride, it may make sense to focus on companies with little or no exposure to Apple.

With Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN) getting hit from right left and center these days, investors pretty much keep their focus on the FAANG. When we think of tech stocks, we often imagine a bunch of geeks typing on their computer with 3 screens in front of them. We also imagine young, hip and fast-moving companies with great potential to bring triple digit returns in our portfolio.

When economic conditions are unsure, and there is any sort of worry around, both companies and consumers are generally reluctant to spend money, and with good reason. Who wants to put their capital at risk if there is a potential for an economic downturn like a recession? That’s when excess cash goes into the bank for the proverbial rainy day.
