  • Applied Materials, Inc. Beats Q4 EPS By a Penny (AMAT)

    The Santa Clara-based semiconductor machinery manufacturer, Applied Materials (AMAT) , announced quarterly operating results after the closing bell on Thursday, which barely topped analyst estimates.  AMAT Earnings in Brief -AMAT announced Q4 EPS of $0.19, managing to beat the projected figure of $0.18 per share by a penny. -The company raked in revenues of $2.09 billion, coming in above the expected figure of $1.99 billion; this figure was 5% higher than the previous quarter and was largely bolstered by growth in silicon systems orders. -Net sales in Q4 came in at $1.99 billion, up 1% sequentially. Updated Guidance Applied Materials updated its guidance for Q1 2014 . The company now expects EPS to come in at $0.20-$0.24, compared to the Wall Street consensus of $0.23. CEO Commentary Gary Dickerson, AMAT's president and CEO, had the following to say about the most recent quarter: "This has been a transformative year for Applied Materials as we shaped a more competitive company, reduced overhead expenses, stepped up investment in product development and built momentum for profitable growth." He went onto add, "As we look ahead to 2014, we expect stronger investment by our semiconductor and display customers and major technology inflections in transistor and memory that play to our strengths." Dividend Policy Updates The company made no changes to its dividend policy. Applied Materials has a tendency to increase its payout in the first quarter of the year, and investors should watch out for this in 2014; most recently in Q1 2013, it raised its quarterly distribution from $0.09 to $0.10 a share.
