Can the major indexes reclaim key support? Can Apple hold its 200-day? Will the 10-year Treasury yield top 3%? And is Twitter a better stock than Facebook or Google-parent Alphabet?
For some years now, there has been a tension between the world’s largest tech companies—Alphabet, Amazon.com, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Baidu, and Alibaba Group Holding—and the chip companies they rely on, especially Intel and Nvidia. While the giants buy massive quantities of Intel’s (INTC) microprocessors, and Nvidia’s (NVDA) graphics chips, or GPUs, to power their data centers, they are also in an arms race to have the best artificial-intelligence-based machine-learning functions. Because of this, there was always the possibility the giants might decide to buy fewer off-the-shelf parts and make their own custom chips to get an edge on one another.

The movement by large tech companies to design their own in-house processors continues, with a report today by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Ian King, and Sarah Frier stating that Facebook (FB) is “building a team to design its own semiconductors,” citing multiple unnamed sources. The report claims Facebook might use such chips for a variety of things, including hardware devices but also data center servers. Alphabet's (GOOGL) Google has built its own parts for machine learning, the “TPU,” which the company claims can do some work in machine learning better than Intel’s (INTC) microprocessor, or Nvidia’s (NVDA) GPUs.
Intel staged a low-volume breakout Wednesday. Fellow Dow stocks Apple, Microsoft, UnitedHealth and Visa just below buy points. These blue chips' relative strength lines are already hitting new highs, a bullish signal.
Here are some things going on today in the world of tech: Chip equipment makers tank Shares of chip-equipment stocks are under pressure, with ASML (ASML) down $5.81, or 3%, at $206.89, and Lam Research (LRCX) down $11.21, or 5.3%, at $201.12, despite both of them beating expectations. Juniper’s painful shift Shares of Juniper Networks (JNPR) are down 96 cents, almost 4%, at $24.45, after Goldman Sachs’ Rod Hall this morning cut the stock to Sell and cut his price target to $21 from $26, after concluding the company’s much-discussed change to its product lineup is going to cost it business.
In this series, we’ve learned that Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has strong growth prospects, but its poor financial health makes it a risky bet because it doesn’t have the capability to withstand a downturn without reporting losses. Hence, AMD has been a favorite of options traders and short-term investors looking to see quick capital gains from the stock’s volatility. Over the last year, AMD stock has underperformed the S&P 500 Index (SPY) and its peers.
