Highlights:

  • NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) revenue surged 53% YoY in Q4, FY22.
  • Broadcom Inc. (NASDAQ: AVGO) revenue jumped 16% YoY in Q1, FY22.
  • The AMD stock returned over 35% gains in the past 12 months.

The semiconductor stocks are gaining traction, bolstered by limited supply and relentless demand. Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger has recently called on the government to subsidize efforts to boost domestic chip production and guard against the vulnerabilities of the global supply chain.

He stressed that semiconductor is the "new oil" in the technological age.

Like Gelsinger, Micron Technology CEO Sanjay Mehrotra and Lam Research President and CEO Tim Archer have urged the administration to subsidize up to US$52 billion for chip manufacturing, highlighting that China spends around US$100 billion to support the industry while the US dedicates only half of that amount.

The following are the top semiconductor stocks to explore in April.
