Rising adoption of 3D architectures are driving the performance of its non-memory segments. Advanced packaging technology inflections are tailwinds. Also, both etch and deposition technologies are expected to expand the company’s addressable market. Lam Research is benefiting from its transition to new data-enabled economy. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q1 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. Shares have outperformed the industry it belongs to on a year-to-date basis. However, cyclicality and the ongoing U.S.-China trade war remain major headwinds." (10/14/2019)
