Semiconductor Integrated Chip or IC Chip manufacturing is a very complex process that involves advanced technology and process in order to make a high yield (high successful rates) product. R&D investment is always needed in order to keep its technology up-to-date with peers and demand.
- EPS % Growth: +53% MRQ, +22% 3-year
- Sales % Growth: +35% MRQ, +21% 3-year
Its ratios are also great:
- EPS: 18
- P/E: 24%
- ROE (annual): 75%
- Pre-Tax Margin (annual): 37%
- R&D investment: 15%
Fundamental speaking, KLAC is a solid company.
Its chart also shows its potential after its breakout in November 2021 and continual broadening formation with all other semiconductors peers (AMAT, LRCX, TSM, LRCX). Its patterns show aggressive demand in 2022. Thus, it would be important to enter KLAC with tiger control of stop-out as marked.
