+ Watch AIXG
on My Watchlist
The Company is a provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry.
P/E of only 5.3. / 1.3 B market cap / good sales pipe line and NO DEBT. They will be better able to ride out the down turn
10/27/2011 earnings report will be positive. Market has already built in low expectation. +6% 10/27/11 . Price target 21 by end of year.
Front end capital equipment for PV manufacturing near cycle low.
This is a great company since they along with VECO are the main suppliers for LED equipment production. However, they are going to face headwinds that will most certain affect earnings going forward.First of all, China's market is becoming more saturated with equipment due to the surge in orders because of fears of local government subsidies for the led equipment. Second, China is trying to steer investment dollars towards domestic offerings so that their hard earned money doesn't go to either German or American companies. This will most certainly be a major negative as well going forward. Third, even if the first 2 factors don't pan out, then you have to consider valuations. Fellow VECO is way cheaper with a rock solid balance sheet and yet has for some reason not advanced as rapidly as AIXG. I think given the prospects, VECO is a better deal in an overall crummy investment environment. Especially when you consider that AIXG is trading at a 2x premium to VECO.
China sends Aixtron a big order that would double current orders. And carry them though 3rd Qt.
Rev growth last 5 years P/E under 20Profit Margin (ttm): 20.15% Operating Margin (ttm): 31.61% Return on Assets (ttm): 20.29% Return on Equity (ttm): 31.47% Pretty strong numbers and it's at a pretty attractive price right now. Kind of curious as to why this stock isn't a little higher. Anybody got an idea that I'm not seeing?
This company is German, and you know Germans always make great things!
I leeched this one from other Fool picks. I like that AIXG pushes LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology and other technologies I don't understand yet. This German company has a bright future. Energy efficiency is going to become much more important in the near future once we determine extracting oil and natural gas are dead-end technologies.
Earnings beat a coming
LED lights are going to be in absolutly everything by the end of the next decadee. AIXG and VECO control 80% of all MOCVD production. I think 2010 growth is priced into the stock already but if the market improves I believe both these companies will outperform the S&P 500. AIXG & VECO Long 1-3 year time frame.
joining other fools, hopefully not to be hearded over a cliff.
Under the radar. Have some interesting patents on potentially disruptive technology.
The Group's principal activity is the production of machinery to manufacture compound semiconductors using the MOCVD process, a process in which compound gases are transferred to a rotating wafer. The machines are used to produce semiconductors that are utilised in LEDs, laser, solar cells and cellular phones. It is used in applications such as interior lighting, automotive, data transmission and space technology. The Group has subsidiaries in Sweden, the UK and USA.
This is one of those stories that makes an Investor sod....uncontrollably....I originally invested in a company that AIXG bought and that I lost some money on. When it reached the break even phase, some 3 years after initial investment, I gleefully sold. Instead, I should have held and done my homework. What I missed out on what was a 3 bagger, and probably more. I sold this around $5.50, and have regretted it ever since. This is actually a great company in a booming market. They are a huge European LED producer. The global market demand is ever increasing, and LED's are incredibly energy efficient. What you will find over the next decade is LED light bulbs replacing the "fluorescent" bulbs that are now in fashion. The current energy sipping "fluorescent" light bulbs will look like a Suburban compared to the energy saving LED bulbs of the future. Go long and go far with this multi bagger that I was all too eager to sell.
This company seems to staying on the top of a highly competitive and constantly changing environment.
Bullish on LEDs
On a strictly technical basis, my magic charts say this will outperform the S&P
