Supplies to nearly every etch tool maker in the semiconductor industry, including the up and comers. Although semiconductor equipment is said to be on the downturn, I can say from industry experience and trade journals that this does not seem to be the case. Combine that with steady growth and a stellar balance sheet and you will have large gains n the coming years.
