GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Applied Materials Inc

Third Avenue Managements Comments on Applied Materials - Oct 02, 2012

We also added to our position in Applied Materials Common (AMAT), which was discussed in last quarter's letter. The share price has been weak of late owing to a deteriorating 2012 earnings outlook. Demand for semiconductor capital equipment appears to have been negatively impacted by the slowing global economy. Nevertheless, Applied Materials' financial and market positions remain strong, and the shares were purchased at an attractive price of about nine times 2011 earnings.

From Third Avenue's third-quarter letter, by Ian Lapey, portfolio manager.

Third Avenue Management Comments on Applied Materials and Tokyo Electron
In September, Applied Materials (AMAT) announced plans to merge with Tokyo Electron ("TEL") (TSE:2760). Both Applied Materials and TEL are well respected in the semiconductor equipment industry. We initially invested in Applied during a cyclical downturn in the industry, yet with the belief that growth prospects were bright over the longer term due to continuing technology transitions as semiconductor chips get smaller and more complex and the potential for Applied Materials, specifically, to gain further market share. The transaction is structured such that Applied Materials shareholders will own 68% of the new company with TEL shareholders getting the remainder. The benefits of the merger for Applied shareholders include expanded market opportunities (particularly in processes such as etch and selective materials removal) and more efficient research and development. The companies estimate potential synergies totaling $250 million at end of the first year and $500 million by the end of the third year, driven from enhanced efficiencies in the supply chain, manufacturing, IT and corporate overhead. While we are optimistic about consolidation in the industry longer term, Applied's stock price increased on news of the transaction to a level where the valuation was not as attractive as other opportunities and we exited the position, locking in our 25% internal rate of return on our investment.From Third Avenue Management's fourth quarter 2013 commentary.
