(A Top Pick Oct 01/20, Up 113.2%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with AMAT continues to progress well. We now recommend trailing up the stop (from $54.50) to $112.00. This would all but guarantee a return on investment over 54%, including the recommendation to cover 50% of the holding previously.

Really likes it. 22x earnings for a 13-15% growth rate, not bad at all. Equipment maker to make semiconductor chips. In the right place. Be careful if it's swept up again in a tech selloff if yields start moving up again. The most cyclical area in tech is the semi area.

The semi shortage is getting worse. AMAT has an analyst meeting tomorrow where he expects them to explain the status of the production of capital equipment (to make semis). He thinks semis rallied today in anticipation of this meeting.

Semis are the basic building block of the modern economy. The most economically sensitive area. The group has gone through a correction. Highly doubts the rally is over. Huge shortage of chips. TER, LRCX, and AMAT all look attractive. Demand will be quite strong going forward.

Likes the name. World's largest manufacturer of equipment used to make semis. Very cyclical, so doing well now. Benefiting from OLET displays. Higher beta at 1.4, so be careful. If you hold it, keep an eye on it. Use a stop loss.

It's taken a hit because of the semiconductor chip shortage, but things are good enough to keep climbing as Pres. Biden recognizes the scale of this shortage.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly The semi-conductor space has benefitted from the stay at home trend to drive devices we are all using. Recent earnings for AMAT of $1.06 beat analyst expectations of $0.95. Revenues have grown over 23% to $4.4 billion over the year. Management raised guidance on EPS for Q4, showing they have confidence going forward. The US Commerce Department created uncertainty for the company by threatening to put constraints on semiconductor exports as a warning to China. This has already been factored into the share price we feel. We would trade this with a $46 stop-loss and an initial upside target of $75. Yield 1.48% (Analysts’ price target is $76.16)

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.

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.
