Broadcom vs. Texas Instruments: Which Chip Stock is a Better Buy?

By Nimesh Jaiswal

Even though the ongoing global semiconductor shortage exacerbated by rising Covid-19 cases in China and the Russia-Ukraine war has impacted several industries, the semiconductor industry has been thriving due to the resultant increase in the prices of chips. In addition, Intel’s Pat Gelsinger expects the semiconductor industry to suffer supply shortages until 2024. Furthermore, the passage of the $52 billion CHIPS Act will likely strengthen domestic semiconductor manufacturing and research. According to BlueWeave consulting, the global semiconductor market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% between 2022 and 2028. Therefore, both Broadcom Inc. (AVGO) and Texas Instruments Incorporated (TXN) should benefit.

AVGO designs, develops, and supplies semiconductor infrastructure software solutions. It operates through two segments, Semiconductor Solutions; and Infrastructure Software. TXN designs, manufactures, and sells semiconductors to electronics designers and manufacturers worldwide. It operates in two segments, Analog; and Embedded Processing.

AVGO has gained 5.9% over the past six months, while TXN has delivered negative returns. Also, AVGO’s 20.6% gains over the past nine months compare to TXN’s negative returns. Moreover, AVGO is the clear winner with 33.3% gains versus TXN’s negative returns in terms of the past year’s performance.

But which of these two stocks is a better buy now? Let’s find out.

Latest Developments

On April 12, 2022, AVGO announced sample availability of its complete end-to-end chipset solutions for the Wi-Fi 7 ecosystem. Vijay Nagarajan, vice president of marketing for the Wireless Communications and Connectivity Division at AVGO, said, "Broadcom is once again leading the next generation of Wi-Fi with a full suite of Wi-Fi 7 ecosystem solutions. Our Wi-Fi 7 products and diverse customer partnerships continue the accelerated momentum created by the one billion Wi-Fi 6/6E chips that Broadcom has shipped over the past three years.”

On April 28, 2022, the board of directors of TXN declared a quarterly cash dividend of $1.15 per share of common stock, payable May 17, 2022, to stockholders of record on May 9, 2022.

Recent Financial Results

AVGO’s revenue increased 16% year-over-year to $7.71 billion for the fiscal first quarter ended January 30, 2022. The company’s adjusted EBITDA grew 22.3% year-over-year to $4.82 billion, while its non-GAAP net income came in at $3.74 billion, representing a 25.8% year-over-year increase.

Also, TXN’s EPS is expected to grow at a rate of 10% per annum over the next five years.

Profitability
