In this piece, we will take a look at the ten semiconductor stocks to buy today according to Peter Rathjens, Bruce Clark, and John Campbell's Arroswtreet Capital. If you want to skip the details about the hedge fund and its founders and want to jump ahead to the top five stocks in this list, then head on over to 5 Semiconductor Stocks To Buy Today According To Peter Rathjens, Bruce Clark and John Campbell's Arrowstreet Capital.

Arrowstreet Capital is an investment firm based out of Boston, Massachusetts, United States. The firm is known for taking a quantitative approach to investment and keeping a low profile.

Arrowstreet Capital was founded in 1999 by Harvard professor John Campbell, Mr. Peter Rathjens, and Mr. Bruce Clarke. The trio is still in charge of crucial positions at the investment firm, with each responsible for key areas that suit his profile. Starting from Mr. Campbell, the professor and hedge fund executive is responsible for managing the research division of his hedge fund. Alongside this, he continues to teach at Harvard.

Moving on to Mr. Clarke, he holds the senior most position at Arrowstreet, as he is currently serving as the firm's chairman. He became the hedge fund's chairman at the time of its founding and held the role of its chief executive officer as well until December 2014, when he stepped down from the role. After this, he went on to become a managing member at another financial firm, while continuing his role as Arrowstreet's chairman. Finally, the hedge fund's final founding member is Mr. Peter Rathjens, who is its chief investment officer and has held this position since 1999.

Arrowstreet Capital describes itself as a firm that uses quantitative tools and proprietary research to make investment decisions. It provides products such as pension plans, endowments, and investment funds to its customers. Some of the strategies that the firm employs include long/short, long only, and alpha extension. For the uninitiated, the alpha refers to the return that a fund generates in excess of a market. The firm also evaluates and selects the firms that it invests in by taking a look at their fundamentals and market performance metrics. These are then factored into a quantitative model that factors in metrics such as variance.

As of the fourth quarter of last year, Arrowstreet Capital has a portfolio worth $81 billion, making the company one of the largest in the world. A cursory look at the holdings reveals that they are concentrated in the information technology industry. In this piece, we will further zoom in on this sector and sift out Arrowstreet's ten best semiconductor holdings. Out of these, the fund's largest holdings are in the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (NYSE:TSM), ASML Holding N.V. (NASDAQ:ASML), and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA).

Investors are also looking forward to the closing of the previously announced merger with a semiconductor manufacturer that is another one of the portfolio’s holdings. The merger will increase AMD’s capabilities in the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) chip space, and the combined company should possess the potential to win additional market share in the datacenter chip market.”

Third Point Management mentioned Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) in its fourth quarter 2021 investor letter. Here is what the fund said:

“2021 was a highly productive year for Intel‘s new CEO, Pat Gelsinger. Despite the stock’s tepid results, we see a compelling, underappreciated fundamental story. Intel’s “brain drain” – a key part of our thesis when we first sought to help the company confront its long-time underperformance – appears to be reversing. Since joining Intel, Mr. Gelsinger has not only brought back prominent Intel former employees but has also attracted talents from competitors such as AMD, Nvidia, Apple, and, most recently, Micron’s stellar Chief Financial Officer, David Zinsner.

We are encouraged by Intel’s aggressive investment plan, including a recently announced fabrication plant in Ohio and acquisition of Tower Semiconductors. We knew from the start that Intel’s turnaround would be complex and lengthy, and we have been pleased to see Mr. Gelsinger sacrifice near-term earnings for long-term growth.

Finally, after a series of blunders across its PC and Server product lines, Intel is finally receiving good reviews for one of its upcoming processors: Alder Lake. Tom’s Hardware, a preeminent hardware publication, called Alder Lake “a cataclysmic shift in Intel’s battle against AMD’s potent Ryzen 5000 chips.” While this is just one product across a broad lineup, and given it will take time to achieve leadership across them all, we are encouraged by these tangible signs of progress under Mr. Gelsinger’s leadership. With talent returning, an improving product suite, and a willingness to invest for growth, we believe Intel’s prospects have turned the corner. We expect that the company’s upcoming analyst day will be an ideal time for Mr. Gelsinger to articulate the progress he has made and begin to reset expectations for the company.”

6. Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT)

Percentage of Arrowstreet Capital’s 13F Portfolio: 0.3%

“Compare Rivian to Applied Materials (AMAT), a semiconductor equipment supply company that specializes in the “frontend” (primarily patterning) of the semiconductor manufacturing process. The company makes products that are critical to making modern computer chips. It has a market cap of approximately $145 billion dollars. It, also, generated $0 from selling EVs over its lifetime. However, Applied Materials generated $21 billion in revenue and $5.1 billion in net income over the past twelve months alone in its semiconductor equipment business. Since a company that sells no EVs is worth $150 billion, then Applied Materials semiconductor business is being valued at a negative $5 billion dollars…”
