Buy The Chip Dip!

Read MoreHide Full Article

The semiconductor space is ripe for a buy after a recent market dip. This earnings season should generate some robust springboard price-action for the best-positioned chip stocks after the recent pulldown in the space. In fact, the leading semiconductor ETF (SMH - Free Report) dipped momentarily into bear market territory – (-20%) or more decline from recent highs – last Monday (1/24).

The S&P 500 is finally headed back towards its highs following a rate-fueled January correction, which appears to have bottomed last week. This leading large-cap index finally got a much-need growth bid following valuation-supporting fundamentals from the world's largest tech giants' Apple (AAPL - Free Report) and Microsoft (MSFT - Free Report) .

Demand for the latest technology is becoming as boundless as the prolific innovation that drives it. The commencing digital renaissance of the Roaring 20s will be a decade of outsized economic growth with semiconductors at the crux. Integrated chips (aka semiconductors) are at the core of every new technology, and their advancement is paramount to posterity.

The leaders of chip innovation like TSMC (TSM - Free Report) , NVIDIA (NVDA - Free Report) , & AMD (AMD - Free Report) have proven that the semiconductors sector is no longer bound by cyclical factors but can generate sustainable and consistent secular growth. Outsized chip demands are the reason for the global chip shortage, and this swelling demand isn't going anywhere.

It's time to get greedy on digital chip stocks this earnings season. AMD (AMD - Free Report) reports earnings after the closing bell Tuesday (2/1), and analysts are looking for record top and bottom-line results, touting the growth of 40% and 44%, respectively. If AMD can deliver solid results and guidance, it would drive a friendly innovation bid in the high-growth semiconductor space.
