Top 5 Companies in the Semiconductors Industry With the Lowest Projected Earnings Growth (POWI, MCHP, SWKS, INTC, QRVO)

By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Semiconductors industry with the lowest projected earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (current fiscal year estimated vs. last year actual) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Power Integratio ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 2.7%. Microchip Tech is next with a projected earnings growth of 8.8%. Skyworks Solutio ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 10.4%.

Intel Corp follows with a projected earnings growth of 11.3%, and Qorvo Inc rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 12.0%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Intel Corp on April 26th, 2019 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $52.31. Since that call, shares of Intel Corp have fallen 13.6%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
