3 Smaller, Large-Cap Chip Stocks Expected to Move Higher

In the investment world the definition of a large-cap stock is any company that has a market cap over $10 billion. That leaves a lot of room between $10 billion and the $1 trillion market cap we now have for a few stocks. Combing Tickeron’s list of A.I. Trend Predictions from January 14, I couldn’t help but notice three semiconductor companies with smaller, but still large-cap, stocks that received bullish signals with high probabilities of success.

All three stocks get a “strong buy” rating from Tickeron’s scorecard and the signals all had confidence levels of 88%-89%. The three companies are ON Semiconductor (ON), Qorvo (QRVO), and Teradyne (TER). All three have market caps below $25 billion and they score very well on the fundamental and technical screener.

All three stocks get one negative score on their fundamental analysis, but it’s a different indicator in each case. Teradyne gets four positive readings from the fundamentals, Qorvo gets three positives, and ON Semiconductor gets two positive readings. The only area where all three score really well is in the Profit vs. Risk ratings. Teradyne and Qorvo both get great marks in the Price Growth Ratings.

The companies do even better on the technical analysis screener. All three stocks get four bullish signals. Teradyne doesn’t get any bearish signals while Qorvo and ON Semiconductor each get one bearish signal.

One of the more interesting observations was that the four bullish signals were the same for all three stocks. The signals came from the Aroon Indicator, the MACD indicators, the Momentum indicators, and the Moving Average indicators. The bearish signals for Qorvo and ON Semiconductor were both from the Bollinger Bands.

All three of these stocks have rallied tremendously since their March lows. ON Semiconductor is up nearly 350%, Teradyne is up over 200%, and Qorvo is up over 150%. The rallies have put all three stocks in overbought territory based on their 10-week RSIs and their weekly stochastic indicators. But as the saying goes, “overbought can always become more overbought.”

Looking at the sentiment indicators for the three stocks, something else caught my attention. The short interest ratios for both ON Semiconductor and for Teradyne are extremely high. Teradyne’s is 7.41 and ON’s is 8.04. The average short interest ratio is around 3.0. What the high short interest ratios suggest is that there is considerable bearish sentiment building toward the stocks.

From a contrarian perspective, a high short interest ratio is a good sign because it means, if the stock continues to rally, the short sellers can add buying pressure if they have to cover.

The complete comparison of the three stocks from Tickeron appears below. It shows how the stocks compare to one another and how they stack up against other stocks.
