Memory, DRAW, forget it. Not in this age of Apple. I do not see the value in this business unless it is best to buy it from your competitor.

I don't know how people make a living in the DRAM business. I recently heard that a Gartner analyst said that in the history of DRAM, more money has actually been lost than made and that only a couple of companies (Samsung is one) are in the black in their entire history of producing and selling DRAM.

DRAM is a tough business. You have to be able to weather the low times and enjoy the high times.
