With the worldwide shortage, likes that there's a big impetus to own semiconductor stocks. QCOM is not his top choice. He'd rather look at TSM or NVDA, with higher growth profiles.

Their chips are in every smartphone, so they enjoy good market share. This will take off as 5G comes onboard when the network is built. The Apple lawsuit is now behind them. For a tech stock, this pays a nice yield. Expect growth in coming quarters.

Semiconductors is a fast-moving sector with high valuations. Go with the 5G players. QCOM, which he owns, goes to the top of the list on valuation and potential growth. AMD has done exceptionally well, though valuation is a bit extreme. Not a bad way to play is through the SMH ETF. Nvidia has had the highest growth, but valuation also extreme. He wouldn't chase INTC, even though it's cheap.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Latest earnings reported by QCOM show revenue growth of 60% on the year and are estimated for another 25% next year. Trading at 20x earnings, compared to peers at 32x, it is good value here. The company is a proven leader in semiconductors and pays a good dividend backed by a payout ratio right around 45% of cashflow. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $105, looking to achieve $172 -- upside potential of 29%. Yield 2.01% (Analysts’ price target is $172.16)

He never thought this'd fall $145, and here it's down to $123. At 16x earnings QCOM is not expensive, so this shouldn't be impaired by higher interest rates. He likes this now.

There's a chip shortage right now, so stocks are incredibly expensive. QCOM continues to be very cyclical. Not cheap, but it's a trade here and not without risk. You have to be very careful of fund flows.

Excellent earnings, yet stock sold off. A company that can grow all the metrics like revenue, cashflow, earnings in the mid-high teens for the foreseeable future. The absolute best place to be for the 5G revolution. Patents and licensing, plus chip operations. Yield is 1.80%. (Analysts’ price target is $172.70)

Likes it and has recommended it before, but they'll be in the penalty box for a full quarter because they are held hostage by the chip shortage.

Hardware side of AI and machine learning. Price target of $168. Leadership position in 5G, which will give them strong margins. Recent acquisition gives them a great venue into autonomous driving. Yield is 1.58%. (Analysts’ price target is $165.89)

A way to participate in 5G. 17x earnings doesn't seem unreasonable. If there's a name that you really like, but you think it's too expensive, buy a partial position. It's either going up or down. Nothing wrong with averaging up. If you wait too long, it's psychologically hard to step in.

It is on her watch list. Their outstanding litigation issues have been resolved and they just signed an agreement with AAPL-Q for modems. They are well positioned for 5G. It just pulled back on some negative news. She found other opportunities for growth stocks in other areas that are more attractive, but this one should have some nice growth over the next couple of years.
