  • Why Don't These Stocks Reflect the Risk?

    By Matthew Frankel - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: AMAT, ASML, KLAC

    The semiconductor industry can be cyclical and volatile, and as a result, can scare away a lot of investors. However, there are some companies in the sector that are still worthy of consideration. Applied Materials (NASDAQ: AMAT) is one of my favorite companies in the space as it is the leading manufacturer of equipment used to make semiconductors. In other words, it is the company that many semiconductor makers get more »

    By Shweta Dubey - June 26, 2013 | Tickers: ASML, ET, REGN, CRM

    Earnings per share, or EPS, shows the rate at which a company has grown its profitability. EPS growth is a good fundamental indicator of the future prospects of a company. Increased revenue and high profit margin drive the EPS growth of a company, and investors generally look for companies with higher EPS growth. Let’s delve into the strategies of three companies that are estimated to have more than 25 more »

  • Three Stocks Kicked by Ken Fisher

    By Madhukar Dubey - February 7, 2013 | Tickers: ASML, CYMI, PVH, PSSI, WRC

    I am a very enthusiastic reader of Ken Fisher’s Portfolio Strategy column.  Fisher's investment strategy focuses on knowing information that other market participants do not know, while prioritizing his analysis first with the macro level, then countries and sectors, and then in the end individual stock selection. In his recent blog, he wrote something that caught my attention. Here is an excerpt:

  • Strong Post-Earning Performers that Could Continue to Perform

    By Brian Nichols - January 18, 2013 | Tickers: ASML, BLK, FAST, NUS

    Citigroup, Bank of America, and eBay were the most highly anticipated earnings yesterday, but none of these was the most impressive -- there were several other companies that truly set themselves apart. In this article I am looking at several of these companies, and what it could mean for their stock.

  • Is Intel Broken?

    By Matthew DiLallo - October 28, 2012 | Tickers: AMD, AAPL, ARMH, ASML, INTC

    Over the past six months shares of technology giant Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) are down more than 20% as market worries about their ability to survive in an increasingly mobile world.  They’ve also reduced guidance for the year to reflect current economic weakness.  Once mighty Intel is now trading at less than 10 times earnings as the market ponders whether the company is on the wrong side of several key more »

  • Is Intel Now a Good Buy?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - September 10, 2012 | Tickers: AMD, AMAT, ARMH, ASML, INTC

    On September 7th, Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) reduced its internal estimates of revenue for the third quarter of the year. The announcement that revenue would be about 8% lower than previously expected caused the stock to drop about a dollar on the day, or 4%. On a quantitative basis, Intel appears to be getting close to value territory. Even with this negative news coming in, investors might consider buying the more »

  • Are You Ready for Some Football?

    By Cory Jez - September 4, 2012 | Tickers: AMGN, AAPL, ASML, CMG, CTXS, CMCSA, Z

    We are within a few days now of my favorite time of the year.  The leaves begin to change, the barbeques are being lit up, and football is about to dominate the forefront of ESPN for the next 6 months.  Around the country, men and women alike are preparing cheat sheets, player reports, strength of schedule matrices, and the like.  As I was preparing for my own fantasy draft this more »

  • Is the Semiconductor Industry Cycle About to Turn?

    By Lee Samaha - August 28, 2012 | Tickers: AMAT, ASML, INTC, KLAC, LRCX

    I confess that I’ve long been fascinated by the semiconductor industry cycle. It seems to be so early cyclical that it is almost counter cyclical! This year has proved rather frustrating for the industry. Many forecasters were predicting an upturn that hasn’t quite happened yet. I want to take a look and see what the chances are of a recovery. I’ll do this by focusing on industry more »

  • Semiconductor Stocks Stage a Rebound

    By Karen Rogers - July 25, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, AMAT, ASML, INTC, SNDK

    Investors leery of investing in the semiconductor sector can take heart. After being stunted by slowing global demand, this sector is undergoing a substantial rebound.  Digitimes Research forecasts that the global semiconductor sector will grow at an annual rate of 5%.

    By Tony Daltorio - July 16, 2012 | Tickers: ASML, INTC, NINOY.PK, TSM

It not long ago gave a rather upbeat forward assessment of its business (thanks to smartphones and tablets), and now more good news is flowing for ASML shareholders.

  • ASML Upbeat on Logic Chips

    By Tony Daltorio - April 20, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, ASML, INTC, QCOM, TSM

    If there is one fault that some technology investors have it is that they are too optimistic, extrapolating trends into the future indefinitely. For those tech investors who are more grounded and who want to have a bellwether for the industry, there is one company that fits the bill. And no, that company is not Intel (NASDAQ: INTC), but a company that provides it equipment. Intel recently reported flat revenues more »
