Applied Materials Inc provides manufacturing equipment, services and software to the semiconductor, flat panel display, solar photovoltaic and related industries.

Applied Materials Inc was incorporated in Delaware in 1967. The Company provides manufacturing equipment, services and software to the semiconductor, flat panel display, solar photovoltaic and related industries. The Company has three segments: Semiconductor Systems, Applied Global Services, and Display and Adjacent Markets. The Semiconductor Systems segment includes semiconductor capital equipment for deposition, etch, ion implantation, rapid thermal processing, chemical mechanical planarization, metrology and inspection, and wafer level packaging. Development efforts are focused on solving customers' key technical challenges in transistor, interconnect, patterning and packaging performance as devices scale to advanced technology nodes. The Applied Global Services segment provides integrated solutions to optimize equipment and fab performance and productivity, including spares, upgrades, services, certain remanufactured earlier generation equipment and factory automation software for semiconductor, dis The Display and Adjacent Markets segment encompasses products for manufacturing liquid crystal displays (LCDs), organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), upgrades and flexible coating systems and other display technologies for TVs, personal computers (PCs), tablets, smart phones and other consumer-oriented devices play and other products. The Company offers manufacturing solutions for wafer-based crystalline silicon (c-Si) applications. The Company's manufacturing activities consist mainly of assembly, test and integration of various proprietary and commercial parts, components and subassemblies that are used to manufacture systems. The Company has implemented a distributed manufacturing model under which manufacturing and supply chain activities are conducted in various countries, including the United States, Europe, Israel, Singapore, Taiwan and other countries in Asia, and assembly of some systems is completed at customer sites. The Company's customers include manufacturers of semiconductor wafers and chips, flat panel liquid crystal displays, solar PV cells and modules, and other electronic devices. The Company is also a supplier of LCD fabrication equipment to the flat panel display industry, and a supplier of solar PV manufacturing systems to the solar industry, based on revenue. There are a number of competitors serving the semiconductor manufacturing equipment industry, with some offering a single product line and others offering multiple product lines.

Guru Investment Theses on Applied Materials Inc

Jerome Dodson Comments on Applied Materials - Jan 25, 2017

The Fund’s best performer was Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT), the semiconductor-equipment manufacturer. The stock soared 72.8% during the year, from $18.67 to $32.27, increasing the Fund’s return by an astounding 216 basis points. Demand accelerated for the company’s equipment, spurred by the transition in NAND-flash memory architecture from planar to 3D and the adoption of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens in smartphones. Investors celebrated, as new orders and product backlog both hit all-time highs and the company forecasted more growth at its analyst meeting in September.

David Einhorn Comments on Applied Materials - Jan 19, 2016

We entered Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT) at $20.31 after the Tokyo Electron deal fell apart, with a viewthat margin improvement through cost cutting and aggressive buybacks could lead to earningsoutperformance. Despite reasonable execution and lots of share repurchases, concerns aboutoverall spending levels in the semiconductor capital equipment space mattered more. The riskof a pending cyclical downturn caused us to exit at $18.21 with a small loss.
