Nanometrics is Among the Companies in the Semiconductor Equipment Industry With the Highest Future Earnings Growth (NANO, AMKR, AEIS, AMAT, LRCX)

Dec 04, 2012 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) -- Below are the three companies in the Semiconductor Equipment industry with the highest future earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (next fiscal year estimated vs. current fiscal year estimated) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.Nanometrics ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 177.7%. Following is Amkor Technology with a future earnings growth of 64.4%. Advanced Energy Industries ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 63.2%.


Applied Materials follows with a future earnings growth of 60.5%, and Lam Research rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 60.2%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Amkor Technology on August 24th, 2012 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $4.70. Since that call, shares of Amkor Technology have fallen 8.0%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
