Trade talks

According to Larry Kudlow, the White House economic adviser, the US and China are working to close a trade deal this week. The news about a trade deal boosted the broader market and pushed up the major market indexes, semiconductor ETFs, and chip stocks that rely heavily on China for revenues.

According to a CNBC report, the top S&P 500 companies including Qualcomm (QCOM), Micron, Qorvo (QRVO), Broadcom (AVGO), and Texas Instruments (TXN) are mainly impacted by the trade deal resolution. They have significant exposure to China. The companies generate ~40%–60% of their revenues in China (FXI).
