Eyes Peeled for Applied Materials News
This week kicks off the start of second-quarter earnings season, with Alcoa (AA) set to report its June quarter results after the market close today. Aside from formal earnings announcements, there are other events that investors should keep their eyes and ears on. Both Research In Motion (RIMM) and Yahoo (YHOO) have scheduled their annual shareholder meetings for Tuesday and Thursday, respectively. Investors will be listening closely for details on strategic directions for both companies, given the delay of RIM's Blackberry 10 operating system until early 2013 and the potential announcement of a new CEO at Yahoo.
Aside from company earnings and those shareholder meetings, SEMICON West is set for July 10 to July 12 in San Francisco. This marks the 42nd year for this annual microelectronics event. It serves a host of vertical businesses, including those of semiconductors, photovoltaics/solar, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), light-emitting diodes (LEDs)/solid-state lighting and printed/flexible electronics. While keynotes will be heard from Intel (INTC), Applied Materials (AMAT) and Xilinx (XLNX) over the three days, dozens of speakers are scheduled throughout the event. These include Micron Technology (MU), Cree (CREE), Suntech Power (STP), Qualcomm (QCOM), Broadcom (BRCM) and Taiwan Semiconductor (TSM), to name just a few.
