One of three members of an oligopoly on wafer fab equipment for deposition, etch, and polish. They will trade market share among these three but all will continue to grow with the semiconductor market.

Current risk's include the following: Trade War risk, competition, possible tariff casualty. Stock is also cyclical in nature. However, with this kind of Earnings growth and pristine balance sheet, this company is positioned to be a real winner.

I ran a Joel Greenblatt style "quality" (high ROIC) and "cheap" (low EV/EBIT) screen and was surprised to see Lam Research pop up.

It caught my attention that Lam was both cheap, efficient, and involved in an important and growing industry, a rare combination.

Lam seems to have carved out a niche in semiconductor production, particularly in processes that go by "etch, deposition and 3D NAND."

Through its fairly large size, being involved in a highly engineered process, and relationships with semiconductor producers like Samsung and Micron, Lam should command some competitive advantages.

The cyclical nature of demand, however, will create some lumpiness in Lam's results, which should benefit some investors (such as us) in identifying a good company's trading at bargain prices due to short-termism. It is akin the Munger quote that goes something like "it is better to have a lumpy 15% than a straight 12%.
