Investors appear to be quite bullish as Samsung Electronics shares surged 4.5 percent today after the market opened in Seoul. Analysts expect the company to report record profits from its memory chips business for the third quarter of this year ending September.

Samsung’s Q3 2017 results are due this Friday and analysts expect that the company will report record profits from its memory chip business. Some analysts have already raised the price target for the company’s shares to 3.5 million won or $3,080.

Analysts expect Samsung to post an operating profit of 13.34 trillion won on earnings of 64.84 trillion won. Samsung posted record profits in the previous quarter as well. It actually became the most profitable tech company in the world. The company will certainly be looking to maintain the momentum.
