    Chip equipment getting hammered

    OK let's review. I posted 3 days ago that Barclay's was downgrading LRCX & KLAC. The downgrades were before the open on Monday (7/25). Now that both companies have reported here is the closing values for each. (Can't use AH trading numbers as they can change in a fraction of a second.)

    Monday KLAC Open $348.54...close Thursday $369.98 (up $21.44 or +6.15%)
    Monday LRCX Open $450.26...Close Thursday $484.94 (up $34.68 or +7.70%)

    The Nasdaq was up 3.14% during this 4 day period.

    So if you listened to Barclay's you got shafted. This is a perfect example of why you should NEVER listen to the analyst upgrades and downgrades. They are often telling the retail investor to do one thing while doing the opposite for their clients. there should be a law against doing that......but there isn't. GLTA.

    It will be up tomorrow or soon thereafter. CHIPS bill signed and once signed by you know who it should once again go higher. Equipment is needed regardless of who’s building what.

    So Barclays comes out this week and lowers the price targets for LRCX and KLA. This is earnings week for both companies and we expect passage of the Chips For America package this week. By Friday we will know if Barclays is trying to spread FUD. I believe it will be a good week for the chip equipment companies. Can't wait to see.

    Great earnings report and now down in the after-hours. It's annoying when that happens.

    Beats and raises by quite a bit. The street is so clueless

    It's really amazing that we saw a 10% drop from Monday's high to Tuesday's low, then a 9% gain from the Tuesday low to the Friday high. All in one week. This all happened on NO specific company news. This is why they say invest......don't trade. An entire YEARLY return can vanish and reappear in a period of one week.

    KLAC is well positioned to take advantage of the inflationary environment. KLAC will easily beat their 2nd quarter earnings after today's close!!! Good luck to all longs!!! GO KLAC GO!!!

    A guest-analyst on cnbc recommended this stock a couple weeks ago at $320, or thereabouts. Buying opportunity?

    KLA Corporation Hosts Investor Day; Announces $6 Billion Share Repurchase Program and 24% Increase to Quarterly Dividend; Affirms June 2022 Guidance

    Interesting that there was a news release today (6/24) that KLA was initiating their $3B "Accelerated Share Repurchase" thru CitiBank and GS but the daily average trading volume was just normal. That shows that these firm have some very sophisticated trading tools (options, etc....) that they use to gather the shares without driving the daily price exploding higher as that would be picked up by the average/novice investor.

    The stock will "eventually" move higher as the $3B repurchase plan is expected to be completed in 3-6 months (per KLA Investor Relations).

    Buying back 15% of shares. That is a huge buyback

    Amazing that LRCX is down $100 in a week and KLAC increased divi. I think LRCX ASML,AMAT AND KLAC are a fire sale

    OK.....so the big volume DID come on the close. Nice volume! One trade at the close was for 417,662 shares. Gotta believe that was part of the $3B accelerated buyback.

    That is REALLY great news today on KLAC doing a $6B buyback with $3B of it on an accelerated plan in the next 3-6 months PLUS increasing the dividend by 24%!!! That's what I call confidence.

    '8/3/2022----UPDATE on the Barclay's downgrade of KLAC & LRCX.

    KLAC is now $396 up from $348 last Monday when Barclay's downgraded it. (+13.8%)
    LRCX is now $525 up from $450 last Monday when Barclay's downgraded it. (+16.7%)

    Just goes to show you what kind of games are being played by these large brokerage houses. I feel bad for the novice investors who get trapped by these thieves.
