    [$$] Japan eyes ban on government use of Huawei and ZTE equipment

    Japan is considering banning government ministries from procuring equipment from China’s Huawei and ZTE as part of its intensifying cyber security measures, according to people familiar with the plan. The move comes a day after Canadian officials revealed that Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer and the daughter of chief executive Ren Zhengfei, had been arrested following a US extradition request over allegations that the company had violated sanctions against Iran.

    Chinese officials find 'evidence' of anti-competitive behavior by Micron, Samsung, SK Hynix

    Regulators in China said they found "massive evidence" of anti-competitive behavior by Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. , SK Hynix Inc. and U.S-based Micron Technology Inc. , the FT reported Tuesday. Beijing officials said they made "important progress" into a price-fixing probe, and some say Micron's inclusion could be used as a negotiating weapon by Beijing when it comes to U.S. trade talks. The probe follows a U.S. lawsuit in April that alleges the three chipmakers colluded to boost prices of DRAM. The three companies declined to comment to the FT.

    Applied Materials, Lam Research stocks downgraded to neutral at B. Riley

    B. Riley analyst Craig Ellis downgraded Applied Materials Inc. and Lam Research Corp. to neutral from buy on Monday, citing concerns about the memory industry. Applied Materials' NAND and display businesses are overexposed to the smartphone market, he said, "an attribute we should have reflected earlier this year in our ratings stance." He expects that the company's Nov. 15 earnings report could be similar to other recent ones from semiconductor-equipment companies "with solid [second-half] quarterly revenue and margin execution but a meaningful cut to 2019 [semiconductor] EPS." On Lam, he believes that SK Hynix Inc. became "materially more tentative" with its 2019 capital-expenditure commitments over the past week, and he's also worried about Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.'s recent commentary on memory spending, particularly when it comes to NAND. "While quite impressed with Lam Research's C3Q margin and share repurchase execution which helped sustain a buy at the time, we now believe NAND spending overhang creates a cloud of uncertainty for shares," he wrote. Applied Materials shares are up 0.4% in Monday morning trading, underperforming the S&P 500 and PHLX Semiconductor Index, while Lam shares are up 1.8%, slightly ahead of both benchmarks. Lam shares have slipped 32% over the past 12 months, as Applied Materials shares have fallen 43% and the S&P 500 has gained 4.4%.

    SK Hynix warns of more chip price falls, capex cut as trade tensions bite

    SK Hynix offered a downbeat outlook for semiconductors on Thursday, warning prices of flash memory chips will fall further until early next year from over two-year lows, hit by waning smartphone sales and weaker Chinese demand. The South Korean firm, a key Apple Inc supplier and the world's No.2 memory chipmaker by sales, also forecast lower capital spending for next year, as escalating Sino-U.S. trade tensions make it tough to predict demand. SK Hynix shares fell as much as 5.2 percent on Thursday to their lowest level since August 2017 despite the company posting record quarterly operating profit and sales.

    SK Hynix Inc. -- Moody's upgrades SK Hynix's rating to Baa2; outlook stable

    Moody's Investors Service has upgraded SK Hynix Inc.'s issuer rating to Baa2 from Baa3. "The upgrade reflects SK Hynix's improving business profile, as well as our expectation that SK Hynix will maintain robust profitability and strong financial metrics through the industry cycles," says Sean Hwang, a Moody's Analyst. Moody's expects SK Hynix to gradually enhance its competitiveness in the NAND flash business over the next 1-2 years, as it accelerates its migration to high-density 3D NAND products and increase its presence in high-end product categories, such as solid state drives for enterprise customers.

    Focus: Asian firms shuffle production around the region as China tariffs hit

    SEOUL/TOKYO (Reuters) - A growing number of Asian manufacturers of products ranging from memory chips to machines tools are moving to shift production from China to other factories in the region in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump's tariffs on Chinese imports. Companies including SK Hynix of South Korea and Mitsubishi Electric, Toshiba Machine Co. and Komatsu of Japan began plotting production moves since July, when the first tariffs hit, and the shifts are now under way, company representatives and others with knowledge of the plans told Reuters. Others, such as Taiwanese computer-maker Compal Electronics and South Korea's LG Electronics, are making contingency plans in case the trade war continues or deepens.

    SK Hynix plans $1.6 billion share buyback, new chip plant

    SK Hynix Inc announced a $1.6 billion share buyback and said it would invest $3.1 billion to build a new semiconductor plant in South Korea, sending shares in the world's No.2 DRAM memory chipmaker up as much as 3.5 percent. The investment plan comes even as prices of some memory chips are falling rapidly due to oversupply and slower sales to the smartphone industry. The $121 billion global memory chip industry has enjoyed an unprecedented boom since late 2016, with profits surging to record highs and margins rising above 70 percent thanks to disciplined production after years of consolidation.

    Chipmaker SK Hynix positive on DRAM sales as second quarter profit soars

    South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix Inc said global demand for cloud computing should underpin DRAM chip sales for the rest of the year, as it posted record second-quarter profit on Thursday despite worries over the weak flash memory market. The world's No. 2 memory chipmaker said American and Chinese internet data center providers would drive DRAM revenue in the months ahead, supporting earnings amid a broader slowdown in the chip industry following two years of strong profit growth. "DRAM supply in the second half will not be enough to ease the supply shortage," Myoung Young Lee, SK Hynix's executive vice president, told an earnings conference call.
