2 Under the Radar Chip Stocks to Buy Right Now

NASDAQ: MRAM | Everspin Technologies, Inc. News, Ratings, and Charts

MRAM – The increasing need for low-cost, small-size, and power-efficient random-access memory technology amid the fast-paced digitalization is propelling the growth of the magnetoresistive random-access memory (MRAM) industry. So, it could be wise to bet on these two under-the-radar MRAM stocks, Everspin (MRAM) and NVE (NVEC), which have solid upside potential.

The adoption of magnetoresistive random-access memory (MRAM), a type of solid-state storage circuit, has increased significantly amid the fast-paced digitalization thanks to its “ideal memory” characteristics. MRAMs permit data and programs to be retained in local memory. They offer almost 600% higher speed than the conventional RAMs.

The growing need for low-cost, small-size, and power-efficient random-access memory technology, rising investment in electronic devices, and the development of smart robots should fuel the MRAM industry’s growth. The MRAM market is expected to register a CAGR of 62.1% by 2026.

Given this backdrop, fundamentally sound MRAM stocks NVE Corporation (NVEC) and Everspin Technologies, Inc. (MRAM) could be solid bets now.
