What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lam Research stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lam Research stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lam Research reported strong fiscal third-quarter results on the back of robust equipment demand and solid execution. Moreover, rising adoption of 3D architectures remain positive. It continues to drive the performance of the company’s non-memory segments. Further, advanced packaging technology inflections are acting as tailwinds. Additionally, Lam Research continues to benefit from its transition to new data-enabled economy, in which DRAM and NAND continue to gain from density growth. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, it expects memory segments to weaken during this year. Further, cyclicality and the current U.S.-China trade war are headwinds in the semiconductor industry. Further, foreign currency fluctuation risks are major concerns." (4/26/2019)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We believe N-T memory capex pushouts, market share and EUV could be headwinds." (4/25/2019)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Lam Research reported better than expected F2Q19 results and provided F3Q19 guidance in-line with our estimates. LRCX now expects WFE to decline by a mid- to high-teen percentage in CY19 to ~$42-$43bn and to be C1H19-weighted driven by increased logic and foundry spending and decreased memory spending. Most importantly, LRCX does not expect memory spending to recover in 2019. While we remain buyers of LRCX given its valuation, exposure to multiple growth drivers and its position to benefit as memory spending returns, we are modestly reducing our FY20 and FY21 estimates and acknowledge it may take a little longer for memory spending to recover."
