Craig Johnson, CFA, CMT, returns to Real Vision with a skeptical outlook on the stock market. Despite his hesitation over the broader market's direction, he sees light in the semiconductor space. He explains why, and lays out a trade on Micron in particular, in this interview with Jake Merl. Filmed on July 24, 2019.

    Haha, Texas constructive earnings. They guided down even with starting to resell to Huawei. Inventory overhang is huge.

    Good interview. Not sure about semis in general. A substantive trade deal that benefits the U.S. is a literal impossibility before the election. I suppose it's possible a cosmetic deal comes together in next 6 months and would allow both sides to declare victory to an unquestioning press. The market would look through a superficial deal like that fairly quickly

    I hit the thumbs down not because I did not like the content but because I disagree about the 10% correction- it will cascade much lower IMO. I also think semis is a bad trade as the inventory has built up - much like autos- and this will really impact any significant process. Semis can go stale and with large inventorys, on hand I would be concerned about obsolescence. And, I would not be surprised if it turns out I am very wrong, have hat in hand ready to eat.
