In what seems like a series of warnings out of Morgan Stanley, the bank has put out another today on a critical sector. MS says that the market darling chip sector, often referred to as semi-conductors, are in for a rough road. The bank says the sector has the poorest risk-reward ratio in years. “Cyclical indicators are flashing red … Elevated inventory and stretched lead times leave no margin for error as any lead time adjustment or demand slowdown could drive a meaningful correction”, says the bank.
FINSUM: Gains of semiconductors have greatly outpaced the market over the last three years, and MS thinks it is all about to come crashing down.
