NVIDIA and Intel Dominating the Mobile Chip Market

The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on NVIDIA & Intel Corporation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - Shares of companies focused on the manufacturing of chips used in various products including PCs and smartphones have fallen dramatically in recent months as weakened consumer confidence has affected chip demand. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Semiconductor Industry and provides equity research on NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) and Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC).

Research company Gartner Inc. said that semiconductor sales worldwide will decline 0.1 percent this year to $299 billion, reversing a previous forecast that revenue would rise 5.1 percent. The research company said on Sept. 8 that global personal-computer shipments will increase less than predicted this year and next as consumers scale back spending. Semiconductor companies' third-quarter forecasts have been "well below seasonal averages," reports Bryan Lewis, research vice president at Stamford, Connecticut-based Gartner.

One positive development is the growing sales of smartphones and tablets, especially Apple's iPad. That has helped make NAND flash memory and data processing ASICs the fastest-growing areas in 2011, with about a 20% growth, according to Gartner.

With old revenue drivers such as PCs on the downswing, several chipmakers including Intel are moving to growth prospects such as tablets and smartphones. Intel is looking at aggressively promoting its "Ultrabook" at this year's Intel Developer Forum (IDF), which begins this week in San Francisco. According to IDG News Service, Intel is also planning to display ultrabooks and tablets running Windows 8 at both IDF and Microsoft's BUILD conference.

NVIDIA has taken steps in recent quarters to become a leader in the mobile chip market. The company's Tegra applications processor has netted many key design wins, including devices from Samsung Electronics and Motorola Mobility Holdings.
