RBC says Applied Materials, Lam Research to benefit from continued memory capex
RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani, in analyzing the read-throughs from Micron's (MU) earnings report to others in the semiconductors sector, said he believes continued DRAM and NAND capital spending will benefit Applied Materials (AMAT) and Lam Research (LRCX) the most, adding that he sees Ichor Holdings (ICHR) as likely to be an indirect beneficiary as well given that those two account for the far majority of Ichor's sales.

KLA-Tencor named top 2018 Semiconductor Equipment pick at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Harlan Sur calls KLA-Tencor (KLAC) his top Semiconductor Equipment pick for 2018. The analyst believes 2018 will be another growth year for wafer fab equipment spending, broad based across memory and foundry/logic. Along with KLA-Tencor, the analyst has Overweight ratings on Applied Materials (AMAT), Lam Research (LRCX) and Orbotech (ORBK). He believes valuations still look attractive in the space.

Citi 'getting more nervous' on semiconductors after Asia trip
Following a trip last week to Asia meeting with companies across the technology supply chain, Citi analyst Christopher Danely says he's "getting more nervous" on the semiconductor sector. While demand from the PC end market remains strong, the NAND market remains weak and data points on Apple's (AAPL) iPhone were mixed, Danely tells investors in a research note. The analyst saw signs of an inventory build and believes upside to consensus estimates is declining. He feels momentum is slowing in the semiconductor space. Danely's top pick is Microchip (MCHP) and he's also Buy-rated on Texas Instruments (TXN), Applied Materials (AMAT), Nvidia (NVDA), Skyworks (SWKS), ON Semiconductor (ON) and Micron (MU). The analyst's checks indicate slower than expected iPhone X and 8 demand but stronger iPhone 7 demand. He views this as bad for Skyworks and Qorvo (QRVO) and good for Analog Devices (ADI).
