NVIDIA and Marvell Technology Turn to New Revenue Drivers

The Paragon Report Provides Equity Research on NVIDIA Corporation and Marvell Technology

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 15, 2011) - The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Semiconductor Industry and provides equity research on NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) and Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL). Access to the full company reports can be found at:

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. Earlier this month the Semiconductor Industry Association said that the three-month moving average of sales to the Americas fell 1.4 percent from the April-to-June period; sales to Europe fell 2.4 percent, and sales to Asia Pacific fell 0.4 percent. The lone upside in the report was that Japan saw an increase of 4.9 percent in the month of July.

Bruce Diesen, an analyst at Carnegie Group, argues that the PC chip market is probably affected due to high inventories at Acer and HP, while market for semiconductors used in low-end handsets and automotive were likely among the more robust sectors.

With old revenue drivers such as PCs on the downswing, chipmakers such as NVIDIA and Marvell are making attempts to reinvent themselves.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2012, Marvell Technologies announced an impressive 13 percent sequential revenue jump in its storage end market. The company mainly attributed the boost to share gains at Hitachi Mobile Drive, which is now in demand, as well as strong seasonal demand. Marvell also posted a staggering 18 percent sequential improvement in its mobile and wireless end market.

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.
