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 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)."
