  • Needham & Company Raises Price Target on KLA-Tencor (KLAC)

    Needham & Company reported on Monday that it has raised its price target on semiconductor manufacturing company, KLA-Tencor Corporation (KLAC) . The firm, which currently has a "Buy" rating on KLAC, has increased its price target from $59 to $65 due to an improved outlook for foundry investments. This price target suggests a 9% upside from the stock's current price of $56.29. Analyst Edwin Mok noted, "recently, management commented that C2H13 appears moderately better than guidance at a competitor conference, which suggests upside to consensus estimates. We believe the increased confidence is coming from improved visibility for a stronger C2H13 and CY2014, mostly based on 20nm investments by multiple foundries and incremental memory investments. While comments by AMAT (Hold) suggest KLAC may have lost some share in inspection, we believe KLAC remains the dominant leader in the area. Given improved outlook, we reiterate our Buy rating on KLAC and raise our PT from $59 to $65, which is based on a CY2014E P/E of 14X.". Looking forward, the firm has raised its earnings estimates for FY2013 from $3.29 to $3.31 per share. FY2014 estimates were increased from $3.99 to $4.20 per share.
