Smartphone apps processor revenue surges in quarter two

The global smartphone applications processor (AP) market once again defied the COVID-19 pandemic and grew 20% in revenue terms to $5.8 billion in quarter two (Q2) of 2020, according to Strategy Analytics’ Handset Component Technologies (HCT) service report.

The research group says that Qualcomm, HiSilicon, Apple, MediaTek, and Samsung LSI captured the top-five revenue share spots in the global smartphone applications processor (AP) market in the quarter. Qualcomm maintained its lead of the smartphone AP market with a 32% revenue share, followed by HiSilicon with 22% and Apple with 19%.

Strategy Analytics estimates that smartphone AP shipments declined 16 percent year-on-year in Q2 2020, driven by COVID-19-led weakness. However, increased mix of higher-priced 5G APs more than offset this weakness and helped the AP market to register 20 percent year-on-year revenue growth.

Smartphone APs with on-device artificial intelligence (AI) registered strong growth even as the total market declined and accounted

Samsung got a big boost in operating profit during the third quarter.


James Martin/CNET

The slowdown in tech doesn’t appear to be weighing on Samsung as much as it has in the past.

The company on Wednesday predicted its operating profit for the third quarter would come in around 12.3 trillion won ($10.6 billion), an increase of 58% compared with the year-ago period. It also said its revenue increased by nearly 5% to 66 trillion won ($57 billion).

The quarter represents a rebound of sorts for the Korean electronics giant, which in the year-ago period reported a 56% decline in operating profit.

Samsung didn’t say what impacted its results, but it likely received a boost in demand for its chips as more people are forced to work from

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20201006005031/en/

Micron Technology: Good Quarter, Soft Outlook (NASDAQ:MU)

My coverage on Micron Technology (MU) has been lacking so far in 2020 as the year was and continues to be dominated by Covid-19. In fact, the last update dates back late December as I concluded that a recovery was priced into the shares at $55 at the time.

Shares have fallen by another $10 to $45 due to the impact of Covid-19; yet unlike many semiconductor plays, Micron has not been enjoying the same momentum in its operating business. I like the valuation here, yet am not chasing shares here yet, although I am inclined to buy a further dip.

What Happened?

Over the past decade, Micron has been riding the wave of increased demand for its products for all the obvious reasons and megatrends, which have been underlining the increase in demand. While its business is typically somewhat of a commodity business (certainly in the past) on a
