    Lam, Applied Materials stocks fall, but Stifel remains upbeat despite memory push-out concerns

    Shares of Lam Research Corp. and Applied Materials Inc. are down in premarket trading, though Stifel analyst Patrick Ho reiterated his long-term optimism about the names following recent reports of memory shipment push-outs. "We believe these are attributable to Samsung, and primarily on the 3D NAND front," Ho wrote. "We remind investors that Samsung has been Lam's largest customer for many years now (going back to the early 2000s when the company began working aggressively with Samsung)." Ho remains upbeat in his long-term view of Lam, which he rates a buy, and the industry in general.

    Lam Research stock gains after J.P. Morgan defends bullish rating

    Shares of Lam Research Corp. are up 0.7% in premarket trading Tuesday after J.P. Morgan analyst Harlan Sur defended the stock amid concerns about Lam's shipment outlook. "On overweight-rated Lam Research, we don't disagree that there is some downside risk to estimates in C2H18, but given our recent research efforts, we believe the services business (recurring revenue) that is 25% of their overall business and deferred revenue backlog of $1.1 billion translate to minimal downside in 2H revenues and earnings and continued growth in CY19," Sur wrote.

    Applied Materials Breakthrough Accelerates Chip Performance in the Big Data and AI Era

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Applied Materials, Inc. today announced a breakthrough in materials engineering that accelerates chip performance in the big data and AI era. In the past, classic Moore’s Law scaling of a small number of easy-to-integrate materials simultaneously improved chip performance, power and area/cost (PPAC).
