Kemet Corporation (KEM)
Currently rated as one of the top stocks to buy that is trading under $20.

quote:

Prior Close: $19.42

Kemet and its subsidiaries make up one of the world’s largest manufacturers of solid tantalum capacitors and multilayer ceramic capacitors, the two fastest growing sectors of the U.S. capacitor industry. Kemet is set to report earnings next week, and our Earnings ESP indicator is currently signaling that a beat is likely. We also expect the company to report EPS growth of more than 200% and sales growth of about 57% for the quarter.



quote:

KEMET Corporation (NYSE:KEM), a leading global supplier of electronic components, today announced that the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has accepted KEMET's qualification of C0G and BP dielectrics to MIL-PRF-32535 "M" and "T" levels making them the first base metal electrode (BME) MLCCs qualified for defense and aerospace applications. MIL-PRF-32535 is the DLA's first capacitor specification for defense and aerospace that capitalizes on industry leading base metal electrode (BME) technology. KEMET's MIL-PRF-32535 series utilizes BME technology to deliver up to an 18-fold increase in capacitance for C0G and BP dielectrics compared to the offerings in MIL-PRF-123 and MIL-PRF-55681 using precious metal electrode (PME) ceramic capacitors.

MIL-PRF-32535 is the first DLA specification to recognize a flexible termination option. KEMET's flexible termination utilizes a pliable conductive silver epoxy in the termination system. The addition of this epoxy layer inhibits the transfer of board stress to the rigid ceramic body, therefore mitigating flex cracks that can result in low insulation resistance or short circuit failures.

"This first-to-market product brings a paradigm shift in defense and aerospace applications with the use of BME technology," said Dr. Abhijit Gurav, KEMET Vice President of Ceramic Technology. "KEMET has been a leader in BME technology development for more than 20 years. With the long term, proven success of BME ceramic capacitors in high reliability medical and automotive applications, combined with higher volumetric efficiency, design engineers will now have access to significantly higher capacitance values in smaller case sizes. This enables more functionality, while reducing the payload weight in defense and space applications."

1/16/18

Simpsonville, South Carolina headquartered KEMET Corp.'s shares rose 2.13%, closing the day at $17.25. A total volume of 1.19 million shares was traded.

Additionally, shares of KEMET, which together with its subsidiaries, manufactures and sells passive electronic components under the KEMET brand worldwide, have an RSI of 67.47.

re: Kemet Corporation (KEM)


They announce earnings this week but this is a long term hold for me. Added another 100 shares last week and have an open order to buy 100 more if they dip today.

re: Kemet Corporation (KEM)
One more for you guys to consider Aquantia Corp (AQ)

quote:


Aquantia Scores Big Multi-Gig Design Win In NVIDIA Autonomous Vehicle Platform

San Jose Multi-Gig Ethernet solutions chip supplier Aquantia stepped out with an IPO on the New York Stock Exchange in November last year, but today shareholders may have something else to get excited about. Aquantia announced solutions for Multi-Gig Ethernet connectivity in autonomous vehicles today, as well as a major design win with NVIDIA in the company’s new DRIVE Xavier and DRIVE Pegasus platforms. Since NVIDIA is a forerunner in processing engines for autonomous vehicles, with design wins of their own in major OEMs like Volvo, Tesla, BMW and Audi, the pull-through opportunity for Aquantia is strong and demand for the Multi-Gig chipset solution should track NVIDIA design wins closely for these new platforms.



About AQ

quote:

Aquantia Corp is engaged in developing and supplying connectivity solutions for data centers, enterprise and wireless local area network (WLAN) applications. The Company offers 10 gigabyte Ethernet and Multi-Gig Ethernet Silicon product for data center and cloud, and the enterprise and WLAN markets. For data center and cloud market, it offers 10GBASE-T PHYs product line, which includes 28 nanometer technology products, such as AQ2402, AQ2403, AQ2203 and AQ2104; 40 nanometer technology products, such as AQ1402, AQ1202 and AQ1103, and 90 nanometer technology product, AQ1002. For enterprise and WLAN market, it offers AQrate product line, including 28 nanometer technology products, such as AQR405, AQR205 and AQR105. Its AQrate product line consists of single, dual and quad-port configurations for applications ranging from client personal computers and others for single and dual-port devices, to Enterprise and Campus Ethernet switches for the quad-port versions.



I'm in at $12. Currently trading at $12.65 after hours.

re: Kemet Corporation (KEM)
Thanks for both of these. Maxed out my Roth today but didn’t really have anything in mind to buy. I’ll do some more reading up on them tomorrow, but will likely buy a couple hundred of both. May wait until/if AQ dips after the news release. Up 15% today including AH.

re: Kemet Corporation (KEM)
KEM down a $1.50 since yesterday. I bought in at $21.04 for 22 shares. Tell me I’m not a sucker.

re: Kemet Corporation (KEM)
Dude, you need to learn to buy and forget it. This is a long term play and the entire market is down today.

Also, days like today are good times to average down if you believe in the stock.

re: Kemet Corporation (KEM)
I bought this a couple of weeks ago around $16.67. It hit $20.80 yesterday, but is taking a beating with everything else today. It's a solid company. They released an 8K about two weeks ago with a presentation that looked solid. They also report earnings this Thursday. I've seen one analyst put a $24 tag on it. It wouldn't surprise me if we got there in the next month.

re: Kemet Corporation (KEM)
So what caused this to fall from $27 to where it is now?

They laid some people off and took some cost cutting measures.

Bought 100 shares of KEM today. Looks like long term play. Not sure about AQ, what do you think is a good buy in price. Looks a little pricey now but I may be wrong. Would like to buy more KEM but may wait to see if it falls some.

re: Kemet Corporation (KEM)
I got in AQ at $12 even so I feel good about it. The lowest it got yesterday when the whole market was down was $12.63 IIRC. I can't decide what you feel comfortable with but I think that partnership with Nvidia will be huge over the coming years.

re: Kemet Corporation (KEM)
Thanks. I placed an order for some more KEM a little below 20 and AQ a little above 12. Will watch to see if they fill.
