3 Semiconductor Stocks Outperforming NVIDIA in 2021

In 2020, massive demand for technology-related products and services drove semiconductor stocks higher. Nvidia Inc. (NVDA), a leading chipmaker, benefited handsomely from the surge in chip demand.

Thus, we think investors seeking better semiconductor stocks should consider Intel (INTC), Micron (MU), and Skyworks Solutions (SWKS). These are companies with resilient business models and robust fundamentals, and we believe they have the potential to outshine NVDA through the remainder of 2021.

4 Semiconductor Stocks Outperforming NVIDIA in 2021

The semiconductor industry has benefitted from a favorable backdrop since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, which precipitated a massive increase in the demand for technology-related products and services.
