Susquehanna downgrades Semi Capital Equipment stocks on lower spending
Susquehanna analyst Mehdi Hosseini downgraded Applied Materials (AMAT), ASML (ASML) and Lam Research (LRCX) to Neutral from Positive after channel checks suggested a more challenging Enterprise/Cloud demand environment. The analyst cut his price target for Applied Materials to $38 from $60, for ASML to $200 from $240 and for Lam to $165 from $225. The analyst says that despite an average stock decline of 30% since the peak of 2018, he now believes there is further downside risk. While Lam and ASML already called for a bottoming in quarterly revenue and shipments following the September quarter reports, there is further downside risk as memory budgets are continuing to be revised lower, particularly given that Cloud/Enterprise spending is expected to be lower than prior expectations, Hosseini tells investors in a research note, citing his channel work. These stocks may off a better risk/reward profile in early 2019 when we have improved visibility on equipment shipment plans for the second half of the year, contends the analyst.

B. Riley FBR downgrades three to Neutral on memory spending concerns
B. Riley FBR analyst Craig Ellis downgraded to Neutral from Buy shares of Axcelis Technologies (ACLS), Applied Materials (AMAT) and Lam Research (LRCX). The analyst recommends trimming Semiconductor exposure on increased fears over memory spending. The analyst sees rising concerns that a chip inventory correction is underway, plus he has "some new NAND spending risks." Further, "ample demand crosscurrents and elevated supply chain inventory" could be further exacerbated if U.S. and China trade friction rises, Ellis tells investors in a research note.

Applied Materials price target lowered to $63 ahead of earnings at Stifel
Stifel analyst Patrick Ho lowered his price target on Applied Materials to $63 from $70 ahead of the company's earnings report this Thursday after making modest revisions to his FY19 and calendar 2019 estimates. He now believes his prior estimates for WFE growth were too high and his current WFE outlook is flat to up 4% for 2019, which he notes is "much more in line." Ho added that he still expects Applied to outperform overall WFE trends and he is not expecting "many major surprises" in terms of its Q4 report. Ho maintains a Buy rating on Applied Materials shares.
