07:30 EDTAMATApplied Materials added to Franchise Picks list at Jefferies
Jefferies added Applied Materials (AMAT) to its Franchise Picks list with the stock down 14% year-to-date. The firm attributes the pullback to concerns around tool reuse, and notes it still expects foundry capital spending to increase amid "increased process complexity and competition." Jefferies' work indicates TSMC's (TSM) and Intel's (INTC) capex cuts were driven by market share losses rather than innovation in tool reuse. It keeps a Buy rating on AMAT with a $29 price target.
