view original post

Charles Shi, an analyst from Needham, reiterated the Buy rating on Camtek (CAMTResearch Report). The associated price target was raised to $125.00.

Charles Shi has given his Buy rating due to a combination of factors surrounding the positive outlook of high-bandwidth memory (HBM) capital expenditures (CapEx). Shi interprets the substantial order received by Hanmi Semiconductor from SK Hynix as an indicator of continued strength and growth in the HBM CapEx sector well into the second half of 2024. This outlook supports the assumption that Camtek, being a prominent player in the HBM equipment market, is well-positioned to benefit from this momentum.
Furthermore, the confidence in the sector’s growth prospects has led to an increase in Camtek’s price target to $125. Shi’s analysis suggests that the recent developments warrant a more bullish stance on Camtek’s financial performance, with projections extending into the 2024 fiscal period. The evaluation is supported by a price-to-earnings multiple applied to the projected next-generation earnings per share for Camtek, reinforcing the Buy recommendation.

In another report released on May 22, Bank of America Securities also assigned a Buy rating to the stock with a $112.00 price target.
