A Review Of How Our 11 Semiconductor And AI Portfolios Performed In June


What Is the Semiconductor Value Chain?

The semiconductor value chain refers to the 6 stages involved in the production and distribution of semiconductor devices that involves multiple companies, each with their own specialized roles.

Below are summaries of 6 articles I had posted on TalkMarkets over the past week on the major pure-play stocks in each segment. They are presented in descending order as to their performances in June, and YTD along with their focus, number of constituents in each portfolio, a hyperlink to each article and their pageviews, as follows:

  1. Pure-Play Assembly, Test and Packaging Companies Portfolio:
  2. Pure-Play Semiconductor Foundries Portfolio:
    • UP 14.4% in June (UP 33.8% YTD)
    • Segment Focus: concentrates all its efforts in the manufacturing of chips based on designs provided by other semiconductor companies which allows it to specialize in manufacturing processes and technologies
