Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of ON Semiconductor
So what: All three stocks saw their ratings cut due to concerns over spending trends in the auto, PC, and consumer electronics markets, Forbes reports. ON, in particular, was cut from buy to neutral as UBS shaved its target price from $15 to $11 a share.
Now what: Should investors be concerned? Maybe, but with the sell-off the stocks now trades for a sharp discount to its long-term projected earnings growth rate, resulting in a 0.61 PEG ratio. My guess is whatever legit pessimism that exists has already been priced in. Do you agree? Disagree? Weigh in using the comments box below.
