Thank you for the paper.My latest article is about China and Lam Research so I thought there may be an interest. This article was published as my Semiconductor Deep Dive Marketplace newsletter. The articles available on Seeking Alpha's website are abridged versions of these newsletters also available on Seeking Alpha.
Just a small thing: you may have a typo in the title of section 1 (Semiconductor vs Semiconductor industry).
What are your thoughts on AMEC as a future competitor for Lam, since it is also in the etch and deposition market, has recently won a 2018 VLSI small supplier award and has reportedly sold equipment even to leading edge customers like TSMC?
