The semiconductor chip shortage has led to a number of companies both rise and fall over the past few months. Now, memory-related chips are starting to see a strong rally, even holding its own as other tech stocks have dipped in the past few days.
The move higher may continue, as analysts are starting to upgrade these companies on their strong potential in the next few quarters as well.
One potential winner in the space is Micron (MU). The memory chip maker has just been upgraded thanks to rising demand for memory chips.
- The Hidden Trap Most Investors Don't Even Know They're In
The past 12 years have been a great time to be an investor. Unfortunately, the same forces that helped propel the market upwards, have also placed investors in a hidden wealth-destroying trap.
The sad part is most investors don't even realize the situation they're in...leaving their portfolios vulnerable to a market plunge that could wipe out years of hard work.
That's why I've put together a critical presentation detailing everything you need to know about this quiet "trap" - and how you can protect yourself against its destructive aftermath.
The recent rally has finally brought the share return in-line with the S&P 500 index over the next year. With the company growing earnings at 175 percent over the past year and revenue up 37 percent, it’s likely that shares can continue to move far higher.
Action to take: Shares yield a paltry 0.1 percent, so investors may want to pick up shares in anticipation of a move higher, not for any current or future income.
With shares starting to move higher in recent sessions, traders may want to consider a short-term call option trade. The January $90 calls, last going for about $4.10, offer a leveraged upside to a further rally in shares.
