Semiconductor stocks aren’t doing so hot on Wednesday and there’s a few things investors need to know about that.

First up is Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) announcing it will cut memory chip production in 2023. This comes as demand in the PC market continues to dwindle, which is causing problems for several part manufacturers.

The company says it intends to decrease the production of DRAM bit supply and shrink the growth of NAND bit supply. It’s worth mentioning that MU was the first PC part company to warn of weakening chip demand earlier this year.

Investors also appear anxious as Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) prepares to release its latest earnings report later today. That report will come out after the markets close. Based on its current movement, investors don’t seem hopeful for good news today.

Let’s take a look at how these couple of pieces of news are affecting semiconductor stocks today below!

  • MU stock starts us off with the company’s shares sliding 5.9% as of Wednesday afternoon.
