Experts agree that the semiconductor sector is showing strong growth due to the increasing demand for chips and the rise of AI technology. However, there is caution around the high valuation and potential for a market correction. Long-term investment is seen as favorable, but short-term entry points should be approached with caution.


Seeing strong outperformance due to chips and AI. Bellwether is NVDA, followed by AMD, MU and (to a lesser extent) INTC. Just getting started on the AI movement. Chips will continue to be a major part of that. Great long-term investment for diverse exposure; could buy today and still make money.

But for a short-term trade, be cautious on entry point, as many of the names have run up. Always have to be cautious when buying something that's moved significantly to the upside already.


Likes the general strength in sector. However, high valuation a worry for investors. Would recommend selling on strength. Wait for price weakness before investing. Overall, good fundamentals, but would advise investors to be careful before investing. 


Significant growth in sector will power results of this ETF. However, would classify as option with a high valuation. Make sure risk management allows for protection from a correction. Overall.. trend is strong though. 


A lot of the tech stocks are approaching their price targets, so what's an investor to do? He always recommends writing some calls, actively managing them. You can do this on ETFs over the counter.

Runway for SOXX is probably longer than that of the ZQQ.


Don't sell on recent strength.
Expecting further growth.
Would advise a stop loss - market could fall with upcoming recession fears.
If large position in portfolio - suggest selling a little bit. 


A few weeks ago, it got 3 standard deviations above its 50-day moving average, which triggered him to take profits. It's a short-term trade.


Both have had very good runs. He'd take a third off the table. If it goes up, you still have two thirds. If it goes down, pat yourself on the back for being so smart. Then you can figure out if the trend is there to go lower. For both he'd trim a bit, and either way you'll feel good about yourself. :)


Semiconductors run everything around us. When he participates in these ETFs, he always does it by thirds, both on the way in and on the way out.


Semis are overbought, a legacy of the pandemic, but inventories are starting to normalize and even a few shortages in places. We're overdue for a decline. A trader can play this, but this is not a long-term buy.

Timely. It's a US semis index, including Texas Instruments and Broadcom as the biggest holdings. It charges an MER of 0.43%. For Canadians, it's worth looking at CHPS, which holds global semi stocks, including Taiwan and Broadcom. Note that Warren Buffett has just invested in semis, and he rarely invests in tech.
SOXX vs. ZQQ He doesn't pick ETFs. Mixed messages out of semiconductor industry. Demand issues. Cyclical industry. Trend for semis is degrading, not accelerating. Buying now is a risk. Wait for the semi market to bottom, perhaps in Q4.
Largest semi ETF. Better to buy the single stocks. For example, its biggest holding is CSCO, which doesn't really fit. See his various suggestions and comments today.
Hasn't been following it, and he should have. Semis are huge. Tech got beaten up in January. It might be time to buy. He's not as negative on the tech giants as many are. A lot of the surprise on the downside has perhaps already happened. Increase in rates will diminish valuations, but everybody already knows that. He wouldn't be negative on the semiconductor market at all.
SOXX vs. QQQ vs. TDOC QQQ and SOXX, he has no idea where the market's going to be next month, next quarter, or this year. All he knows is that there's going to be a lot of volatility. So it's an environment of less investing, more trading. Have to be nimble, active. SOXX charts very well, it's the DOW modern day Transport Index, so you need to watch it. He was in TDOC a year ago, and backed away. Healthcare and biotech have had a difficult time.
Are semiconductors a solid bet for the next 5 years? He doesn't look at it that way. He'd rather look at the indices themselves for strategy. This is a new ETF, founded in June, and contains big names like Qualcomm. That's fine. The sector is hurt of supply chain issues. It's okay as a sector trade.
