Bekanntlich ist Preis etwas telatives, aber für ca 1 Mrd EUR iat Aix mMn nicht unattraktiv. Keine Schulden, ca. 260 Mio in der Kasse + der Rest. Sollte es jedoch zu einem Delisting kommen, wäre das aus meiner Sicht nicht so toll.
Dagegen wäre aber ein Einstieg mit 25+% der Anteile durchaus vorteilhaft für den Kurs :) Ob aber jemand an so was interessiert wäre?!
The projected 2020 and 2021 EV/EBITDA ratios are only 11.1x and 8.9X. Aixtron is now traded as a value stock instead of a growth stock although it is growing ~ 25% a year. The high cash and no debt brings down the EV and makes it attractive target, and considering that that Aixtron is number 1 in every market segment it participates and would be cash flow positive for the next several years.
I cannot explain the disconnect between the promise of Aixtron and its low valuation. It seems to me that the Aixtron management is struggling with that too. The management needs to do something before it might be too late. Only the paranoid survive.
JP Morgan ist ein Gigant! und wenn solche Bankhäuser als LV agieren, kannst du dir vorstellen, dass denen scheiß egal ist, wann die die LV Aktien zurückkaufen! Die Leihgebühren sind für die Peanuts. Trotzdem wäre es mal nett, wenn sich die Aktie mal wieder nach oben bewegen würde, und raus aus diesem Schlafmodus käme. Ich habe mal wieder selber 8T Anteile gekauft, bei 7,50, da ich nächste Woche mit guten Nachrichten rechne.
für diejenigen die die Angebotsunterlage nicht mehr auf dem Schirm haben
JP Morgen war beauftragt einen Investor zu suchen der Aixtron übernimmt.

"...In the near-term supply chain, Lumentum, a US-based chip manufacturer that uses Face Laser (VCSEL) for face ID 3D sensing, has received instructions from Apple recently requesting Apple to be used for terminal devices by the end of 2019. The rear lens is used for time difference ranging (ToF). If the addition is expected to extend at least to the 2020 structured light Face ID scheme, a mobile device will use three VCSEL components..."
Ericsson reported stronger than expected Q2 results today. CEO sees strong momentum on 5G side of the business, even so strong that they are expanding production capacity. So 5G is clearly starting to ramp-up as an end-market - that should be positive for Aixtron in my view.
"To ensure we meet customer requirements for fast and agile deliveries, we have decided to invest in a state-of-the-art 5G production site in the US to complement our global supply chain."
"5G momentum is increasing. Initially, 5G will be a capacity enhancer in metropolitan areas. However, over time, new exciting innovations for 5G will come with IoT use cases, leveraging the speed, latency and security 5G can provide. This provides opportunities for our customers to capture new revenues as they provide additional benefits to consumers and businesses. "
ASML reported Q2 in-line with expectations and some growth yoy (2.57bn sales; -6% yoy), however Q3 guidance slightly weaker than expected (3bn vs. 3.2bn expected) but still that shows decent growth of +17% qoq.. indicating that we may be near the bottom.. as I also interpreted Atlas Copco's Vacuum Tech numbers (but might be wrong). I leave the interpretation of ASML's CEO statement to CWL1, he is much more in the Tech/Application detail than I am: (Source: https://www.asml.com/en/investors/financial-results/q2-2019)
Current macroeconomic environment creates end market volatility resulting in industry uncertainty. Memory customers continue to digest capacity additions in a weaker demand environment while logic customers accelerate ramp of their new leading edge nodes
"For the remainder of the year we see further weakness in Memory, while Logic looks stronger. We expect that the increased demand in Logic will compensate for the decreased demand in Memory. The additional growth in Logic is driven by accelerated investments in 7 nm nodes and beyond.
Long term growth opportunity remains, driven by end markets growth enabled by major innovation in semiconductors
Futures of AMAT and LRCX are up sharply this morning in US. They are directly correlated to the wafer fab processing equipment segment. ASML makes the EUV photo lithography equipment necessary for the advanced 7nm and 5nm chip manufacturing. Aixtron is in the semiconductor chain but more indirectly connected to ASML's segment. Still, it is good news if AMAT and LRCX rally from ASML's latest results.
You get a sense that VCSEL is starting its H2 ramp..
TrueLight doing well in consumer application market for VCSEL Siu Han, Taipei; Willis Ke, DIGITIMES Wednesday 17 July 2019 0
Taiwan-based TrueLight, dedicated to providing optoelectronics semiconductors including VCSEL components, is expected to see revenues from shipments of VCSEL devices for smartphone and optical communication applications to surge to 60% as a proportion of company revenues for the third quarter, traditionally a peak season, from 50% in the first half.
The company has been keen to develop the consumer application market for VCSEL since the second half of 2018, having entered the supply chains of major China handset vendors Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo, according to industry sources.
Despite impacts of the US-China trade war, TrueLight's monthly shipments of consumer VCSEL components surged stably to 25-30 million units in the second quarter of 2019 from 15 million units in the third quarter of 2018, thanks partly to handset vendors remaining keen to adopt short-wavelength VCSEL proximity sensors and partly to growing penetration of true wireless stereo (TWS) headphones.
The company's VCSEL shipments will expand further to 35 million units in July and soar to 50 million by the end of the year, the sources said.
TrueLight's short-wavelength VCSEL components can now also be applied to other market segments, including industry control, short-range transmission at 5G base stations, and data storage at datacenters.
wenn apeva samt der ovpd technologie nicht zum SD plan gehört, warum stellen sie weiter personal ein ? gibt es zb. andere grosse display hersteller die in frage kommen ? wenn aixtron und SD nun doch nicht zusammen kommen, würde aixtron das nicht öffentlich kommunizieren?
