13:40 EDTAMATEarnings Preview: Applied Materials to report decline in silicon system revenue
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. Revenues and EPS have fallen year-over-year for four straight quarters. Guidance from the last earnings call for Q4 is adjusted EPS of 0c-6c on revenue that is 25%-40% lower than Q3's $2.34B. 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.

07:30 EDTAMATApplied Materials added to Franchise Picks list at Jefferies
Jefferies added Applied Materials (AMAT) to its Franchise Picks list with the stock down 14% year-to-date. The firm attributes the pullback to concerns around tool reuse, and notes it still expects foundry capital spending to increase amid "increased process complexity and competition." Jefferies' work indicates TSMC's (TSM) and Intel's (INTC) capex cuts were driven by market share losses rather than innovation in tool reuse. It keeps a Buy rating on AMAT with a $29 price target.
