  • Why AMAT’s Weak Guidance Alarmed Semiconductor Investors

    Why AMAT’s Weak Guidance Alarmed Semiconductor Investors

    What do AMAT’s earnings mean to the semiconductor industry? Applied Materials’ (AMAT) performance is an indicator of the overall semiconductor industry’s outlook, as it supplies chipmakers manufacturing equipment to build new capacity or upgrade semiconductor manufacturing technology. Semiconductor investors were already concerned that the weakness in smartphone demand and new technologies would encourage chipmakers to reduce their equipment purchases. The decline in NAND (negative AND) prices added to these concerns. AMAT’s weaker guidance for fiscal Q4 2018 fueled investors’ concerns that the chip industry’s two-year-long growth trend is beginning to slow.

    4 Nanotech Stocks to Watch for Explosive Innovation

    On a purely scientific level, nanotech involves any innovation conducted at the nanoscale, which is between one to 100 nanometers. Physicist Richard Feynman, during a lecture in December 1959, introduced the concept that future technologies would enable scientists to “manipulate and control individual atoms and molecules.” Over a decade later, professor Norio Taniguchi coined the term nanotechnology. A single sheet from a typical newspaper is approximately 100,000 nanometers thick.

    [$$] Taiwan Semiconductor Expects Revenue Hit After Computer Virus

    TSMC said the incident will likely delay shipments and hurt revenue at the world’s largest made-to-order chip maker this quarter. The company said the infection by the modified version of the WannaCry virus—the first time a virus has taken down TSMC’s production facilities—so far doesn’t appear to be an attack. Unlike other WannaCry assaults, which encrypted hard drives, blocked users’ access and demanded a ransom, the virus that affected TSMC made some of the company’s systems crash or continually reboot, but didn’t issue any demands.

    Apple chip supplier TSMC resumes production after WannaCry attack

    Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (TSMC), the world's largest contract chipmaker, said on Monday a computer virus outbreak at the company was the result of a mutated WannaCry ransomware attack and it was back in full production. TSMC, a supplier to Apple Inc, initially said the impact of the attack on its third-quarter revenue would be 3 percent, but then revised this down to 2 percent and said neither its data manufacturing base nor its client information were affected. The company's CEO C.C. Wei said an "operational error" occurred when a new fab tool was not taken offline during installation and the virus quickly spread to over 10,000 machines in its factories across Taiwan.
