Since its all-time high above $200 last year, Skyline Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS) has failed to replicate gains. At press time, the stock was trading at $102, down 35.99% year-to-date. The decline in the year is only slightly lower than a minus 39.44% return for a full year. Here is some reason why weakness has heightened this year.
Skyworks belongs to the semiconductor sector, which, up to date, continues to experience high demand and low supply. Strong demand for chips during the pandemic boosted semiconductors’ stocks, including Skyworks. Nonetheless, this year has brought a new set of challenges.
One of the challenges that have hit Skyline and other semiconductors, in general, is market skepticism. After the strong year 2021, investors were cautious that the bubble could finally burst for semiconductor names. As a result, investors turned to defensive names, which are also good at countering the current inflation.
Macro-economic tides have also been blamed. Supply chain challenges have hit the chip makers and their clients similarly, if not equally. Chip buyers such as Tesla have likewise been affected by Covid-19 outbreaks in China.
Macro-economic troubles were evident in Skyworks Q3 2022 guidance. Despite reporting above-estimated second-quarter earnings, declines are expected in the third quarter. A non-GAAP EPS of $2.36 in Q3 was short of the $2.63 reported in Q2. The guidance also missed estimates of $2.55. Since then, the stock has been falling and is now in the oversold region.

Skyworks could fall further amid the macro-economic troubles. The next support is $93, but investors should wait further before buying.
