The investor's confidence in Samsung Electronics fell on Thursday as a downward adjustment in Apple's first-quarter indicative share price for its suppliers.
"That means Samsung will continue to be the dominant player in this business for a long time," he said.
The production of memory chips used in smartphones and data centers is a high-value business for Samsung. Samsung sent a 21 percent increase in profits.
Samsung, an important component supplier to Apple, as well as a competitor in the smartphone market, fell 1.81 percent in the morning meeting, and falls behind the broader Kospi index in South Korea.
