(SOUNDBITE) (English) REUTERS REPORTER, JON GORDON, SAYING: "The smartphone market may be cooling down, but the silicon inside them is red hot." Samsung's Q3 guidance figures - the company's preview to actual earnings - point to yet another record profit, at $9.3 billion dollars. However, if we look at that data in terms of year-on-year percentage growth, this is actually the slowest pace we've seen in about 2 years. That's largely because Samsung's biggest profit engine, high-end handsets like the S4 and of course the new Note 3, appear to be nearing a peak. Worse - its half baked Galaxy Gear smart watch. Yes they beat Apple to market, but it's hardly a glorious start. Instead, Samsung is counting on another revenue source - its semiconductor unit - to do that heavy lifting. Years of cautious investment and consolidation in the chip sector has constrained supply, boosting Samsung's profits. And a fire at a key facility of chip competitor Hynix, means prices for D-RAM memory particular, are likely to stay high. Samsung's also raking in the cash supplying chips for Apple's latest iPhone. That contract continuing despite the bitter mobile rivalry between the two firms. Still recommended as a buy or a strong buy according to the vast majority of analysts we track, Samsung does need to find more money spinners to stay in the good books. The firm is searching - it earmarked an extra $100 million for Silicon Valley venture capital investments earlier this year, but VC does typically takes years to bear fruit, if at all. And while the memory price boost does buy the firm some more time...
