So why are chip stocks taking a beating? For one thing, the market is feeling it today as investors flee risking stocks with rising inflation. For another, Bitcoin (CCC:BTC-USD) dropped in price today, which can have a negative effect on computer part companies.

Of course, we also have to tackle the latest news from Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). The chipmaker is expanding its production capabilities with two new plants. Even more interesting is the fact these plants will be built in Ohio.

Keeping these factors in mind, let’s go over the latest chip stocks movement below!
