Company Report

Samsung Will Catch Up on HBM Competition

Samsung Electronics has been a fantastic growth story as it has established itself as the clear global leader in the smartphone space during the past decade, following its success in becoming the global top manufacturer of flat panel TV in the 2000s. However, we do not identify an economic moat from its consumer electronics business, as these products are mature and difficult to differentiate, and are exposed to the tough competition from Chinese manufacturers. Unlike its competitor Apple, Samsung does not have an ecosystem that prevents users from switching to other brands, in our view.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Samsung's flexible-screen advantage can be leveraged into increased smartphone market share.

Bears

Samsung generates about 20%-25% of earnings from mobile devices. Competition in this space has spiked dramatically, with new players offering similar devices to Samsung at much lower prices. Samsung’s market share and margins appear vulnerable.
