5G smartphones with in-house developed processors tend to use RF parts from Skyworks and Qorvo.
5G smartphones with Qualcomm processors and modems tend to use Qualcomm RF parts. Qualcomm has been boasting about its RF front end design wins. That shows the importance of Huawei and Samsung to Skyworks and Qorvo, since these two Asian giants design their own processors and modems.

QRVO, SWKS slide as analyst sees Huawei losses
Sep. 26, 2019 10:38 AM ET|About: Qorvo, Inc. (QRVO)|By: Brandy Betz, SA News Editor

Susquehanna analyst Christopher Rolland writes that Huawei has found alternatives to most U.S. RF suppliers, citing a visit to China and discussions with Huawei.

Rolland says volumes are unlikely to return to pre-ban levels even if the ban is lifted. The purchasing levels could return to only 50% of the prior levels.

Susquehanna cuts Qorvo ( QRVO -1.2%) from $74 to $70 and Skyworks ( SWKS -0.8%) from $78 to $74.

Of course Huawei would find alternatives. There are plenty of Japanese and European alternatives to these two US companies.

Qorvo, Skyworks jump as Cowen upgrades on 2020 iPhone ramp
Oct. 10, 2019 10:29 AM ET|About: Qorvo, Inc. (QRVO)|By: Jason Aycock, SA News Editor

• Cowen has upgraded key Apple suppliers Qorvo ( QRVO +4.2%) and Skyworks ( SWKS +5%) to Outperform on potential strength from a 5G iPhone.

• Sentiment is low for this year's iPhone crop, analyst Karl Ackerman writes, ahead of anticipated 5G-enabled phones in the second half of 2020, which should provide a "strong C2020 ramp in handset revenues."

• He's raised his price target on Skyworks to $95 from $80, implying 12% upside, and raised the Qorvo target to $90 from $75, implying 18% upside.

• Qorvo derives 32% of revenue from Apple, Bloomberg notes, while Skyworks derives 30% of revenue from key Apple supplier Foxconn.

   of 1698 Skyworks, Qorvo Shares Climb as Cowen Chips in Upgrade to Outperform
By Rob Lenihan
Updated Oct 10, 2019 9:42 AM EDT

Shares of Skyworks Solutions (SWKS - Get Report) and Qorvo (QRVO - Get Report) were both climbing Thursday after an analyst at Cowen upgraded the semiconductor companies to outperform from market perform.

Skyworks Solutions rose 3.6% to $83.64 while Qorvo climbed 3% to $75.50.

Analyst Karl Ackerman also increased his price target on Qorvo to $90 from $75, saying in a note that the stock's risk-reward is skewed to the upside with $7.50 to $8 a share of earnings possible in 2021.

Although Qorvo's content is lower this iPhone (AAPL - Get Report) cycle, Ackerman sees unit upside ahead of higher radio-frequency content in a 5G-enabled phone in 2020.

He also said that while the U.S.-China trade war is not likely to end soon, a resolution over the next few quarters may add $500 million of revenue and $1 of earnings per share to 2020 estimates for the company.

Ackerman increased his target for Skyworks to $95 from $80. The company's content continues to ramp during the current iPhone cycle, he said, and, again, higher radio-frequency content in a 5G-enabled phone presents unit upside potential in 2020.

In addition, Chinese tech company Huawei is 90% discounted into 2020 estimates, which could drive $350 million in sales and 60 cents in EPS upside if the U.S. and China resolve their trade issues.

Ackerman also said WiFi 6m is "finally here," enabling Skyworks to dominate in smart-home applications.

Cellular-based Solution Certified by Global Carriers Including KDDI, NTT Docomo, SoftBank and Verizon

IoT manufacturers are quickly embracing cellular connectivity given its ability to deliver a secure, real-time device-to-cloud connection needed for remote monitoring, control, or management. This low-power, wide area network (LPWAN) capability is ideal for widely adopted consumer products such as smartwatches, wearables and asset trackers, as well as industrial and infrastructure applications such as gas, water and electric metering, machine monitoring, factory automation, supply chain and logistics oversight.

“With the emergence of 5G, IoT devices utilizing Skyworks’ carrier-certified solutions will go to market faster and be more cost-effective than implementing discrete architectures,” said John O’Neill, vice president of marketing for Skyworks. “Skyworks has established itself as a leader in developing breakthrough 5G platforms for mobile and has now combined this expertise with market leading modem technology to provide extremely power-efficient and unmatched integration for IoT innovations globally.”
