Its first quarter loss was greater than the Zacks Consensus Estimate but revenues exceeded the same. However, over the last one year, the stock has outperformed the Zacks categorized Electronics Semiconductors industry. Management sounded upbeat on the company’s progress toward closure of the Nanium acquisition. It is expected to strengthen its foothold in the fast-growing market of wafer-level packaging. Though we remain concerned about weakness in the smartphone market, Amkor is well positioned in growth markets like industrial and auto and communication. Also, its high revenues and strong cash flow generation is a big positive." (6/23/2017)
