Semi equipment stocks overreacting to Intel capex cut, says Summit Research Summit Research said Intel (INTC) is pushing out its 10nm plans for multiple reasons and that TSMC (TSM) and Samsung (SSNLF) will not let a "once in a lifetime opportunity" pass and will speed up their own spending. The firm believes the pullback in semiconductor equipment stocks, particularly Applied Materials (AMAT), KLA-Tencor (KLAC) and Lam Research (LRCX), on Intel's capex guidance cut is somewhat of an overreaction and recommends buying amid the weakness.
