Q2 2022 Earnings Context
Intel and the rest of the semiconductor stocks are currently in focus as the US Senate's version of the CHIPS Bill has now been approved by the US Congress. The House passed the $280 billion CHIPS+ Bill in a 243-to-187 vote, with strong bipartisan support. As a refresher, the Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors for America (CHIPS) Act aims to unlock around $52 billion in federal investments for the domestic semiconductor research, design, and manufacturing provisions as laid out in the US Innovation and Competition Act (USICA). The CHIPS+ bill also includes around $100 billion in authorizations over a five-year period for programs such as expanding the National Science Foundation’s work and establishing regional technology hubs to support start-ups in peripheral areas of the country.
Bear in mind that Intel had refused to move forward on its $20 billion US fab initiative until the legislation is passed.
PC demand has waned recently, prompting a cautious tone from Intel's executives and a slew of downgrades from analysts.
Intel is also reportedly cutting the prices of its Alder Lake CPUs as orders for H2 remain weak, and AMD's Ryzen chips maintain their lead.
