    KLA-Tencor stock drops after Evercore downgrade

    Shares of KLA-Tencor Corp. are down 1.2% in premarket trading Monday after Evercore ISI analyst C.J. Muse downgraded the stock to in-line from outperform. He had upgraded the stock to outperform last month, but he now argues that KLA-Tencor will have the "largest peak-to-trough decline of the front-end equipment suppliers." Muse now expects that the March quarter will be the trough for equipment sales, given that his latest round of channel checks showed "an even more meaningful cut to KLAC's build than originally anticipated due to continuing memory weakness." Muse cut his price target to $100 from $140. His downgrade comes one day before fellow chip-equipment company Lam Research Corp. reports September-quarter earnings. Muse has an outperform rating on Lam shares. KLA-Tencor's stock has fallen 12% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 8.4%.

    3 Reasonably-Priced Chip Stocks That Pay Healthy Dividends

    As chip stocks have sold off, dividend yields for many companies in the group have risen considerably. Excluding data center REITs that are required to pay out at least 90% of their taxable income via dividends, chip stocks now appear to account for a majority of the tech companies sporting dividend yields north of 2%. , which carries a 5.4% yield but whose core hard drive business is getting hurt by solid-state drive (SSD) cannibalization -- many of the chip names that pay large dividends look well-positioned to deliver moderate growth over the next few years.

    Lam Research stock falls after Goldman downgrades on expectation for 'broad-based correction' in memory spending

    Shares of Lam Research Corp. are down 3.1% in premarket trading Wednesday after Goldman Sachs analyst Toshiya Hari downgraded the stock to neutral from buy and cut his rating on the semiconductor capital-equipment industry to neutral from attractive. "While there was initially hope that Samsung's decision to push out DRAM spending was specific to the company and was related to node transition issues as opposed to supply/demand issues, we now envision a more broad-based correction in memory capex in 2019, as memory manufacturers digest what we perceive to be excess capacity in NAND and to a lesser extent DRAM," he wrote. Shares of KLA-Tencor Corp. , ASML Holding NV , and Applied Materials Inc. are all down in premarket trading as well. Lam shares are down 9.5% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 16% and the PHLX Semiconductor Index has risen 22%.
