Applied Materials (AMAT) is expected to report Q4 earnings after the market close on Thursday, November 15, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. The consensus estimate is 3c for EPS and $1.58B for revenue, according to First Call. Like most of the semi group, Applied Materials has had a tough year.

Piper Jaffray estimates Q4 sales to decline 33% to $1.56B, in-line with its guidance. The firm believes silicon systems revenues were down 50% quarter-over-quarter to $773M which likely is the near term trough. Overall orders for Q4 were down 17% quarter-over-quarter to $1.49B. Piper sees 1Q13 orders to grow 10% quarter-over-quarter compared to their prior view of a big snap-back. Overall orders likely improve 5% quarter-over-quarter, with Silicon orders expected to be up 10% quarter-over-quarter. Piper views the Solar segment to remain dormant while the Display segment recovers modestly.
