5G Stock #1 in Semiconductor Category: Xilinx

Xilinx is the leader in FPGAs by market share. Its chips are critical in the performance of various devices in the communications, data processing, industrial, consumer, and automotive markets. Xilinx designs and sells chips, but it outsources manufacturing to third-party chip foundries such as TSMC.

Xilinx Bulls Say…

FPGAs have taken and are poised to continue to take market share away from ASICs, and also that as FPGAs could provide Xilinx with future nontraditional growth opportunities.

Xilinx Bears Say…

Intel acquired rival Altera, giving the latter access substantial resources, which could allow Altera to close the performance gap with Xilinx in the future.

Although FPGAs are expected to grow at a faster pace Xilinx’s revenue growth has been lumpy.

5G Stock #4 in Semiconductor Category: Skyworks

Much smaller than the other ones, Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) also deserves to be on the list. This is a key smartphone and consumer electronics supplier, the company has used its connectivity know-how to enter other markets, including smart home devices, connected industrial equipment, and medical devices. It has also developed some of the basic components that power the next-gen 5G network.

Skyworks specialty Radiofrequency (RF)

Skyworks Bulls Say…

  • Though it’s the smallest chipmaker on this list, Skyworks has a healthy balance sheet to promote further growth as the next wave of connectivity services comes online.
  • As more and more devices become connected to the Internet via cellular networks, Skyworks may continue to find new industries that may require additional RF chip content.

Skyworks Bears Say…

  • large customers like Apple and Samsung wield significant pricing power and could exert pricing pressure on vendors like Skyworks over time.
  • Skyworks has significant customer concentration with Apple, and if Apple were to ever switch to another vendor, it would be a damaging blow.

5G Stock #5 in Semiconductor Category: Qorvo

Qorvo is a leader in radio frequency chips sold to smartphone makers and infrastructure and defense customers. Much smaller than its peer Skyworks with only 12.6B in market cap. Doesn’t pay a dividend and its earning is around the same time as the other ones in this category.

Qorvo Bulls Say…

As wireless technologies shift to more advanced 5G networks, smartphones will require greater RF content per device, which should provide a nice runway for further growth at Qorvo.

Qorvo Bears Say…

The company has significant customer concentration with Apple, and it would be a damaging blow if Apple were ever to switch to another vendor or suffer a severe slowdown in iPhone sales.
