Shares of chipmakers fell Monday in premarket action, dragging down major averages as Wall Street investors digested the fallout from President Trump’s blacklisting Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies.

Trump’s decision last week to deny Huawei access to U.S. technology is expected to cause U.S. companies to cut ties with the world’s No. 2 smartphone maker. Google, for example, is reportedly halting some services for the Huawei.


Meanwhile, Qualcomm suspended shipments to Huawei of its computer chips and told its employees not to communicate with the Shenzhen, China-based corporation.
