    • The worldwide semiconductor market will reach $401.4B this year, according to research firm Gartner.
    • The amount represents a 16.8% growth from the prior year and the first time the market has totaled more than $400B. 
    • Gartner research vice president Andrew Norwood attributes the growth to a memory shortage that has allowed vendors to increase DRAM and NAND pricing, which in turn increases revenue and margins. 
    • The expected 52% revenue growth in the memory market could push Samsung (OTC:SSNNF, OTC:SSNLF), the world’s largest memory provider, to the top of the market. Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) has held the top slot since 1992.

    • Investors should trade tech stocks ahead of a potential underperformance, warns Larry McDonald in his Bear Traps Report, per CNBC
    • "Getting out in front of the rotation is more important than valuation – as capital flows out of highly concentrated trades it has to go somewhere in a bull market. It's a growth into value tsunami," McDonald writes about tech stocks. 
    • The strategist also notes that the volatility measures for the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100 have spread to the largest difference since 2004, but the gap should close shortly.
    • McDonald attributes the gap to investors moving away from growth stocks in favor of value stocks.  
    • Tech stocks have experienced recent pullbacks including the high profile FAANG stocks: Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Alphabet (Google). 
    • Semiconductors took a rough hit but have started to rebound. The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index is up 2.13%

    • "I reiterate my sell call on Semi's and continue to see a test of 1,000 on the SOX (-8 percent) as the group continues to display the textbook signs of a reversal in trend and a technical symmetry with Bitcoin, which is down -9% overnight and poised for another -17% to 2,044," writes Ross.

    • A fancy valuation combined with industry growth set to peak in June was enough for Credit Suisse's John Pitzer to downgrade ON Semi, which was down as much as 7%, but has rebounded to a 4% loss.
    • Then here's Dialog Semiconductor which crumbled in German trade on worry it might lose a crucial supplier deal with Apple. That's leaking over into Cirrus Logic (CRUS -3.8%), where Apple accounted for about 85% of company revenue in a recent quarter.
    • Other sizable Apple vendors include Micron (MU -2.7%), Qualcomm (QCOM -2.2%), and Analog Devices (ADI -2.1%).
    • SOXX -1.3%
