He likes this and it pays a decent dividend. Holding for the long term, this is a good holding. The semi-conductor space is looking a little suspect right now. With the trade pressures, Asia as a big consumer, concerns him entering right now. A better entry would be in the mid-$30s.

Very cyclical. Earnings cycle turning down, so looks like earnings could fall significantly over the next year or two. Wait on this.

It has a strong balance sheet and the equipment is needed to make semi-conductor chips. They were hurt by the failed US-China trade negotiations. His expectation is that a slowing economy will result in lower Q1 earnings and he thinks it will drop in price. A good buy around the low $30s.

He would wait to add to any position -- look for it retest the lows of December. It is a cyclical, so you want to make sure you buy them cheap enough. He is in a trader frame of mind, so he would target a buy at $30 and sell at $46.

(A Top Pick Jan 25/18, Down 37%) Sold it in August around $43. The cycle has suddenly changed; semis have gotten hit. AMAT isn't a semi company, but a semi equipment one. But there's weak demand of this product now and US restrictions on selling chips to China doesn't help. This could rally if there's a US-China deal.

They make semiconductor equipment, but not semiconductors. He thinks an inventory drag will get worked out in the second quarter. It is a good buying opportunity.

Trump has slowed down growth of China's semi-conductor industry. He'd buy below $31. Good balance sheet and track record. The semi industry is increasing, but we'll still see more of a pullback. Watch for now.

This is an equipment supplier in the semi-conductor space. He sees better valuations with other competitors at this time, who are trading at under 10 times earnings.

A semi-conductor equipment company, selling parts for the semis' production lines. Semis are being used in more and more applications in, say, cars and data centres as A.I. grows. AMAT is a big player in producing semis. But there are
concerns about cyclicality, but overall this business is attractive.

He's been short semis which has cyclical earnings, and this cycle has run its course. He wouldn't play this sector now. It has peaked. This is not a bad holding though.

He is not into the computer equipment space. He does not buy into the high inventory levels at a peak margins – a classic red flag – in his opinion. He is concerned they will not be able to grow into the current valuation.

They make equipment for the semiconductor industry. She rarely invests in this sector. The sector is very volatile and recently, pricing across the industry has come down. She won’t consider investing in this until she sees stability in their end customers and the pricing environment that those customers face.

He's owned this on and off and made some money. The key driver was China's semi-conductor industry, which Trump kieboshed when he went after ZTE. Wait 2-3 months. Don't buy now. There's more downside to come.

Semiconductors are doing their own thing. This is old tech. Model price is $85 with a 100% upside. But it is a cyclical. Over the last three years it has been on a tear and is pausing here. He would e a buyer here – a small amount.
