In basic, Cramer stated Lam Research and other semiconductor devices plays such as ASML Holding, KLA and Applied Materials have actually been viewed as extremely cyclical “because, typically, when there’s endless demand and tons of price hikes, they end up making too much product to try to cash in on that demand, then demand collapses and their profits vanish.”

“We sold it because I was worried the semiconductor makers were double ordering as the supply of machines was so limited. We were right temporarily, but then the business came roaring back,” Cramer stated. “That strength has never really ebbed, even as Lam’s stock has gotten fatigued. I think that’s the one to buy here, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.”
