Every other sector in our economy has had extended cycles during the current economic recovery and yet analysts are projecting semi equipment manufacturers to fall off a cliff. I find that highly unlikely given the growth we are seeing consumer electronics worldwide and the complexity of newer devices coming to the market. All this tells me that the cycle is going to be longer and stronger than analysts estimate and that the short recommendation by one analyst is going to have him and his clients in a house of pain.
