Applied Optoelectronics Inc (NASDAQ:AAOI) has been a very troubled name. AAOI stock popped up on our radar when shares soared from sub-$10 in mid-2016 to more than $100 just 12 months later.

This is KLA’s biggest-ever dividend increase, notes Ellis, and it signals the health in the industry, and bodes well for capital returns, he thinks, "kicking off a wave of broader sector excess cash return moves we expect can be followed by LRCX and AMAT but with a differing stock repurchase and/or dividend increase allocations." The move from 2.3% current yield on KLA’s dividend to 2.9% is a big deal, 1.2 points ahead of the S&P 500’s average 1.8% And there’s more to come next year, he thinks: The further and essential context is the dividend was hiked just six months ago from $0.54 to $0.59 which means a +39% Y/Y increase when paid this June. Indeed, even with the dividend increase baked in, cash could rise $400-$600M per year in the next few years absent share buy-backs or a follow-on hike or both, so we suspect balanced cash return is a card KLAC can continue to play, as it has decade to date even as it leaves abundant wiggle room for substantial increases in early 2019.

With semiconductor equipment companies not getting their due in terms of stock valuations, it may be time to consider having private equity firms do leveraged buyouts, write Credit Suisse analysts Farhan Ahmad and John Pitzer. Worries about declines in NAND memory chip pricing, in particular, are hurting Lam and others that supply memory-chip makers Micron Technology (MU) and its competitors. “Consensus view is that it is not worth buying Semicap/Memory stocks when NAND pricing is going down and DRAM pricing could potentially decline in C2H18,” note Ahmad and Pitzer.
