Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT) is set to report fiscal fourth-quarter 2019 results on Nov 14. In the last reported quarter, it delivered a positive earnings surprise of 5.71%.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings has remained stable at 76 cents over the past 30 days. The figure indicates a decline of 21.7% from the year-ago reported figure.

Notably, the consensus mark for revenues is pegged at $3.69 billion, implying a decline of 8.1% from the year-ago reported figure.

Performance in the Last Reported Quarter

In third-quarter fiscal 2019, earnings of 74 cents per share surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 4 cents. The figure improved 5.7% sequentially but declined 28.8% year over year.

Revenues decreased 14.4% from the year-ago quarter to $3.562 billion. However, the figure surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $3.526 billion.

Let’s see how things have shaped up for this announcement.

Applied Materials, Inc. Price, Consensus and EPS Surprise

Strong Demand for Services

The company has been efficiently delivering key enabling technology to logic and foundry customers, given well-differentiated products along with high market share. Service is an important part of Applied Materials’ portfolio that is likely to have aided the to-be-reported quarter.

The Applied Global Services (AGS) segment is expected to have performed well in the quarter to be reported, driven by improved device and yield performance.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues from AGS for the fiscal fourth quarter is pegged at $959 million, indicating 3% year-over-year growth. The same for Semiconductor Systems Group is pegged at $2.25 billion, suggesting 1% year-over-year improvement for the to-be-reported quarter.

Strength in Display to Drive Revenues

The Display segment’s performance is expected to have been driven by significant opportunities, courtesy of investment in areas such as artificial intelligence, big data, cloud infrastructure, Internet of Things, virtual reality and smart vehicles.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the segment’s revenues for the quarter to be reported is pegged at $458 million, implying 35.1% year-over-year increase.
