The White House’s restriction on Chinese company Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. has resulted in skidding of the U.S. Stocks. Hitting a considerable low on the charts, this move has raised concerns over the tartness of trade relations between China and the US.
After having been added to the trade blacklist, several companies have started bailing off the business terms with Huawei. The world’s biggest Android concomitant company, Google, has stopped providing access to their apps and services. Another stake holder, Lumentum Holding Inc, has supposedly stopped sending mobile phone parts to Huawei.
According to a Bloomberg report, various other chip-making companies including Intel Corp, Qualcomm and Broadcom Inc have been decisive on not supplying the company with any of their products or parts.
The impact due to Huawei’s fallout has been severe with the stocks tumbling down to their record lows. Qualcomm, Broadcom and Micron Technology Inc, which supply parts to Huawei reside under The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index has affected with a substantial drop of 4% which is the lowest in the two months.
The biggest hole in Wall Street’s indexes was caused with the 3.1% drop in Apple’s share doing the damage. The shares were further affected after HSBC gave a fair warning about the higher pricing of products affecting the demands of the products. The new tariffs implemented resulted in an overall higher price of the products.
