Semiconductor stocks are getting a lift from Biden's big spending plan

7:03 am ET April 1, 2021 (MarketWatch)

By Philip van Doorn

The president wants to set aside money for chip and electric-vehicle companies.

The news about President Biden's massive spending plans highlights infrastructure. But U.S. semiconductor companies may see a big benefit, and stocks in the sector are already starting to perk up.

The iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF (SOXX) was up 2.4% on March 31, with all 30 its components showing gains for the session. SOXX tracks the PHLX Semiconductor Index . Among the 30 stocks, 15 are down at least 10% from Feb. 16, when SOXX hit its all-time high.

Biden's spending plan

In February, the Semiconductor Industry Association's (SIA) board of directors, which includes CEOs or senior executives of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD), Nvidia Corp. (NVDA), Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM), Intel Corp. (INTC), Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN) and others, sent a letter to Biden.

They wrote that the U.S. market share of global computer chip manufacturing had "steadily declined" to 12% from 37% in 1990. The SIA board said the loss of market share was largely the result of significant government investment in the semiconductor industry in other countries, while there was none in the U.S. (You can read the entire letter here (https://www.semiconductors.org/semiconductor-industry-leaders-urge-president-biden-to-prioritize-funding-for-semiconductor-manufacturing-research/).)

And now the president is trying to give the U.S. semiconductor industry what it wants. SIA CEO John Neuffer said in a statement on March 31 that Biden's spending program "would invest ambitiously in U.S. semiconductor workers, manufacturing and innovation -- three cornerstones of America's strength and its future."

Investment strategists at Bank of America included chip makers in their list (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/here-are-the-stocks-that-could-benefit-from-4-trillion-of-infrastructure-spending-according-to-bank-of-america-11617187558?mod=home-page) of companies that could benefit from the Biden plan.

The spending package would include $50 billion (https://www.wsj.com/articles/biden-urges-50-billion-to-boost-chip-manufacturing-in-u-s-11617211570) for the American semiconductor industry amid a worldwide shortage of chips. In addition, $174 billion would be set aside to help the U.S. "win (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/biden-infrastructure-plan-includes-pitch-for-electric-vehicle-rebates-tesla-gm-nikola-shares-gain-11617202889?mod=home-page)" the worldwide competition for dominance in the electric-car industry. This would obviously help Tesla Inc. (TSLA), but it would also support manufacturers of the myriad computer chips used in the vehicles.
