Investopedia: ASML And The Obvious - Weak Trends And A Bid For Cymer
In contrast to Applied Materials (Nasdaq:AMAT), which has repeatedly made moves and comments that have left investors scratching their heads, ASML (Nasdaq:ASML)
continues to operate and report along highly predictable lines.
Although there's evidence that industry conditions are even weaker than
previously supposed, ASML didn't really surprise with its third quarter
earnings, nor its announcement that it's acquiring Cymer (Nasdaq:CYMI). What is frustratingly less obvious, is what constitutes a fair price to pay for ASML today.
