12 High Growth Semiconductor Stocks that are Profitable

In this piece, we will take a look at the 12 high growth semiconductor stocks that are profitable. For more semiconductor stocks, head on over to 5 High Growth Semiconductor Stocks that are Profitable.

The semiconductor industry is the backbone of the technological world. This is simply due to the principles of computer science, as any gadget, whether it is a small smoke detector or a mega supercomputer, must have a processor or semiconductor to perform the required functions. Therefore, as long as there is technology, the chip sector will be present to power all the devices out there.

However, while on the surface the industry appears to make only chips, the reality is that there a countless different firms that contribute to the manufacturing process. Broadly speaking, the chip sector is divided into several categories such as design equipment manufacturers, product designers, equipment providers, manufacturers, and front end firms that package the final product into usable forms. Together, these make up an ecosystem responsible for transforming sand into a high end processor.

In terms of market value, the semiconductor industry was worth $556 billion in 2021 according to DigiTimes Research, and from then until 2030, it is slated to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7% to sit a $1 trillion by the end of the forecast period. Out of this estimate, the biggest portion will be for communications and computing devices, according to the research firm. These are products that are used in computers, smartphones, and other products and cover chips such as central processing units (CPUs), graphics processing units (GPUs), and modems. Within the market, the communications sector will grow slower when compared to the broader market through a 6% CAGR to $318 billion, with the computing sector also exhibiting a similar CAGR and sitting at $360 billion by 2030. However, the current gold rush in the electric vehicle segment and the increasing use of electronics will lend the automotive sector a faster than the average growth rate. DigiTimes estimates that this industry will have a whopping 12% CAGR and grow to $145 billion.

Technologically, there are several emerging trends in the industry right now. For instance, the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM) is currently engaged in mass producing chips on the 3-nanometer node - which is the most advanced chip making process in the world. At its heels is the chip giant Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), who, according to statements by its chief executive officer Mr. Patrick Gelsinger, aims to catch up to TSMC in less than two years. On the backend side of things, both Intel and TSMC along with other chipmakers are in a rush to procure the latest chipmaking machines from ASML Holding N.V. (NASDAQ:ASML) before they become short. ASML is the only company capable of making machines used in fabricating advanced chips, and the new equipment, called High-NA, is capable of producing crisper chip designs.

Today, we'll look at the top profitable semiconductor firms, and those that stand out are Monolithic Power Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MPWR), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (NYSE:TSM), and Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADI).

Our Methodology

We used the Finviz stock screener to pick out which chip firms are highly profitable. The firms are selected based on a net profit margin that is greater than 15%. The net profit margin divides the firm's net income by its overall sales, and those with a higher percentage earn more cents on each dollar of sales. They were then further sifted through based on a quarterly revenue growth greater than 15%. Finally, the companies' income statement was analyzed to confirm that the net income is not influenced by a one off event, such as a business unit sale. The final candidates are ranked through their sequential sales growth.
