    Applied Materials Keeps Rising on Wednesday

    The stock rose 0.6% to $34.96 at market close on Wednesday, building on a 4% gain on Tuesday, indicating the early stages of growth after losing double digits so far this year. As a classic cyclical stock, concerns over the cycle and worries over macro factors may be taking a back seat to fundamentals and demand indicators. Some investors are confident in a recovery in share prices across the semiconductor sector as fear over tariffs and memory pricing have prematurely pushed prices down.

    Chart of the Day: Applied Materials Selling Stops as Signs of Recovery Emerge

    According to FactSet data, institutions, and in particular active investors, have been selling the California-based semiconductor equipment stock in droves since late 2017, but have recently tempered off and changed gears. Growth investors in particular are warming to the shares, according to FactSet, alongside index providers and "growth-at-a-reasonable-price" investors. Investors interested in a turnaround at Applied Materials will likely want to hedge their risk, given the possibility of a serious price cut at the chipmaker.

    Pricing Pressures on Memory Aren't Diminishing for Applied Materials

    The semiconductor equipment company's shares are rising shortly after noon, up 1.38% to $35.24 as of 12:45 p.m. ET, but there is room for concern in the months ahead as inventory and pricing pressures on memory chips increase. According DRAMeXchange, a technology market intelligence provider, both NAND and DRAM prices will remain under siege. "DRAMeXchange expects the quotations of DRAM products to decline by 5% or more quarter over quarter in the fourth quarter 2018, terminating the super cycle of price growth for nine consecutive quarters," the report reads.

    Applied Materials Is Still Bearish, Looks Headed Lower in the Months Ahead

    Tomorrow is another day but right now I am questioning the 'breakout.'" With the benefit of 20/20 hindsight we can see that not following the upside breakout in AMAT some seven or eight months ago was the right strategy. In the daily bar chart of AMAT, below, we can see that from the peak in March the share price of AMAT slides lower and lower. The daily On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line did not move up to a new high with prices back in March but it did not decisively turn lower until the middle of August.

    Tech is getting wrecked — three experts weigh in on whether the turmoil will continue

    Technology is the second-worst-performing sector in the S&P 500 in the last week, with names such as Applied Materials AMAT , Nvidia NVDA , Adobe ADBE and PayPal PYPL among the group's biggest losers in that time. Timothy Lesko, principal and partner at Granite Investment Advisors, said the recent downside isn't all due to rising interest rates and that older legacy technology names may be better buys at this juncture. "I think technology companies aren't unique in their sensitivity to interest rates, it's just simply a lot of the go-go-growth companies have been living off a period of really low interest rates.

    Applied Materials, Lam Research stocks fall after Deutsche Bank downgrade

    Deutsche Bank analyst Sidney Ho downgraded shares of Applied Materials Inc. and Lam Research Corp. to hold from buy on Monday, writing that he sees risk for additional capital-expenditure push-outs in the first half of 2019. Shares of semiconductor-equipment companies have been pressured in recent months amid concerns that memory makers were delaying equipment purchases and general fears that the memory cycle has peaked. "We believe investors' fears will remain as long as the memory market stays weak," Ho wrote. "While we acknowledge that some capex cuts are already priced in and that stock valuation looks attractive, we also believe the absence of positive catalysts as we continue to search for the bottom of the cycle will likely keep semi-cap stocks range-bound in the near term." Also on Monday, Mizuho downgraded Lam's stock to neutral from buy. Lam shares are down 1.3% in Monday afternoon trading, while Applied Materials' stock is off 0.9%. Lam's stock is down 19% over the past 12 months, while Applied Materials shares are down 26%. The S&P 500 has risen 16% over that time.
