$KLAC Is Getting Clocked, Here's My Swing Trade Level

This morning, the leading semiconductor equipment stocks are tumbling lower. Leading stocks such as KLA-Tencor Corp (NASDAQ:KLAC), Applied Materials Inc (NASDAQ:AMAT) and Lam Research Corp (NASDAQ:LRCX) are all trading down by 3.0 percent or more.



The big loser in the industry group is KLA-Tencor Corp (NASDAQ:KLAC). The stock is falling lower by 8.65 percent to $108.56 a share. The stock has very solid daily chart support around the $107.30 level, this area was successfully tested earlier today. Should KLAC stock fail to hold this support area on a daily chart closing basis then it would signal another decline in the near term for the shares. The next key support area for KLAC stock would be around the $103.00 level. This support area was where the stock was defended in late July and will likely be defended again if retested. I will be watching this level closely for a long trade in the next few weeks.

KLA-Tencor Declares Special Cash Dividend, Announces Planned Redemption of Senior Notes due 2018, and Updates Outlook for Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2015 Resulting from Previously Announced Leveraged Recapitalization Transaction

MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- KLA-Tencor Corporation (KLAC) announced that its Board of Directors has declared a special cash dividend of $16.50 per share on its common stock payable on December 9, 2014 to KLA-Tencor stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 1, 2014. KLA-Tencor's Board of Directors has also authorized the redemption of $750.0 million outstanding principal amount of KLA-Tencor's 6.900% Senior Notes due 2018.

"We are pleased with the successful completion of the financing of our leveraged recapitalization transaction, and the declaration of our special cash dividend of $16.50 per share," said Rick Wallace, President and Chief Executive Officer of KLA-Tencor. "This is a major step forward for the Company in executing our capital allocation strategies in support of our strategic objectives, and fueling strong stockholder returns."

The company also revised its outlook for the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 following the closing of its previously announced registered offering of approximately $2.5 billion aggregate principal amount of its Senior Notes under an effective Registration Statement (including a prospectus supplement and accompanying base prospectus) on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The revised outlook for the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 also reflects the impact of the planned redemption of $750.0 million outstanding principal amount of KLA-Tencor's 6.900% Senior Notes due 2018 (including the payment of associated redemption premiums, accrued interest and related fees and expenses), borrowings of $750.0 million under term loans provided under a credit agreement and a $500.0 million unfunded revolving credit facility.

Special Cash Dividend of $16.50 per Share

The special cash dividend was approved by KLA-Tencor's Board of Directors on November 19, 2014 and will be payable on December 9, 2014 to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 1, 2014. Of the $16.50 per share distribution, KLA-Tencor currently expects between $11.50 to $12.50 per share to be characterized as a dividend, and the remaining amount of the distribution to be characterized as a return of capital. The ultimate tax characterization of the distribution will be reported to stockholders on a Form 1099-DIV shortly after the end of the calendar year. Stockholders should consult their tax advisors regarding the tax effects of the special cash dividend to them.

Redemption of $750.0 million Principal Amount of KLA-Tencor's 6.900% Senior Notes due 2018

KLA-Tencor will redeem $750.0 million outstanding principal amount of KLA-Tencor's 6.900% Senior Notes due 2018 on December 19, 2014 ("Redemption Date"). The redemption price will be equal to the greater of (1) 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed or (2) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the notes to be redeemed (exclusive of interest accrued to the Redemption Date), discounted to the Redemption Date on a semi-annual basis, at a rate equal to the sum of the treasury rate plus 50 basis points, plus the accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the Redemption Date.

Revised Outlook for the Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2015

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 ending December 31, 2014, GAAP diluted earnings is expected to be in the range of $(0.19) to $0.05 per share. Other income and expense for the second quarter of 2015 (including incremental interest expense from the issuance of new borrowings described above) is expected to be a net expense of approximately $30 million. Additionally the estimated loss on extinguishment of $750.0 million outstanding principal amount of KLA-Tencor's 6.900% Senior Notes due 2018 is expected to be approximately $131 million.

Non-GAAP diluted earnings is expected to be in the range of $0.37 to $0.61 per share. In addition to the regular non-GAAP adjustments related to the effects of amortization of acquired intangible assets and restructuring, severance and other related charges, which have an impact of approximately $0.02 per share each, the revised guidance excludes approximately $0.80 per share related to the estimated loss on extinguishment of $750.0 million outstanding principal amount of KLA-Tencor's 6.900% Senior Notes due 2018, and approximately $0.01 per share for third-party expenses related to the leveraged recapitalization, partially offset by an approximately $(0.29) per share benefit related to the income tax effects of all of the revised items noted above.

Adjustment to Certain Outstanding Equity Awards

In connection with the special cash dividend, the Board of Directors and the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors have approved a proportionate and equitable adjustment to outstanding equity awards (restricted stock units and stock options), as required under the 2004 Equity Incentive Plan, subject to the vesting requirements of the underlying awards

KLA-Tencor assigned 'BBB' corporate credit rating with stable outlook - S&P
04.29.08, 2:37 AM ET

MUMBAI (Thomson Financial) - Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its 'BBB' corporate credit rating to California-based microchip testing equipment manufacturer KLA-Tencor Corp, with a stable outlook.

The ratings agency also assigned its 'BBB' rating to the company's proposed senior notes, which will be issued in two tranches and be used for general corporate purposes.

'Our ratings on KLA reflect the company's leading position in the semiconductor metrology and inspection equipment industry, good profitability, and moderate leverage,' S&P said.

These factors are offset partially by substantial industry cyclicality and technology risks, it added.

Sector Snap: Chip makers waver after weak AMD results

Shares of semiconductor stocks waver after weak AMD results, worrying equipment sales data


NEW YORK (AP) -- Semiconductor stocks wavered Friday, missing the technology sector boost provided by strong Google Inc. results as Advanced Micro Devices Inc. reported a weak quarter.
Furthermore, an industry trade group published discouraging data on sales of semiconductor manufacturing equipment.

The chip sector, as measured by the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index, slid 2.74 points to 368.28 in midday trading, while the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 2.3 percent.

Oppenheimer & Co. analyst Rick Schafer said in an investor note that AMD's results point to continued market share los for the chip maker. He advocated a cautious stance on AMD, noting "strong momentum from a revitalized Intel."

AMD shares slipped 4 cents to $6.15, while shares of leading chip maker Intel rose 43 cents to $22.54.

Elsewhere, shares of Emcore Corp. lost 2 cents to $6.97 following the chip maker's analyst day.

Oppenheimer & Co. analyst Sam Dubinsky said in an interview that the stock is now in "show me mode" and that it's time for the company to delivery on numbers, particular in its solar sector.

Meanwhile, trade association Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International reported that in the three months ended in March, orders for North American chip manufacturing equipment fell 18 percent year over year amid economic uncertainty.

Shares of the world's largest supplier of chip manufacturing equipment, Applied Materials Inc., edged up 15 cents to $19.32. KLA-Tencor Corp. added 29 cents to $42.84 and Novellus Systems Inc. rose 36 cents to $22.49.

KLA-Tencor Shares Climb After Analyst Upgrades Company and Sector on Stock Correction

NEW YORK (AP) -- Shares of KLA-Tencor are up modestly in afternoon trading after a Friedman Billings Ramsey analyst upgraded the maker of semiconductor testing equipment.

Friedman's Mehdi Hosseini upgraded the San Jose, Calif.-based company to "Outperform" from "Market Perform," along with several other companies in the sector. He lifted his view of the semiconductor capital equipment sector to "Overweight."

"Following a 30 percent correction in stocks in the coverage universe since our early October downgrade, we now have incremental confidence to conclude that most of the 'bad' news is already in stocks and that fundamentals should start to improve by the fourth quarter of 2008," he wrote in a note to clients.

He added that investors should begin buying shares of select companies in the sector, and said he would consider any pullback in share price as a buying opportunity.

KLA-Tencor stock advanced 13 cents to finish at $37.13.
