Samsung’s profits have taken a beating over the past year, largely because of a slump in its memory chip business. But SK Kim, an analyst at the brokerage firm Daiwa Capital Markets, said last month that he expects a boost in Samsung’s memory chip demand thanks to its advances in extreme ultraviolet lithography, a key breakthrough in chip manufacturing.

Samsung will report earnings at the end of this month.
