Credit Suisse reiterated an Outperform rating on Applied Materials (NASDAQ: AMAT), and raised the price target to $34.00 (from $29.00), following the company's 3Q earnings report. EPS beat of $0.02 over the Street was primarily driven by lower taxes. Revenues were reported at $2.82bn missed the Street's $2.87bn estimates.
Analyst F. Ahmad commented, "AMAT reported stronger than expected JulQ orders and guided OctQ rev/EPS well above CS/Street estimates - the upside driven by stronger TSMC. While cyclically OctQ could be a peak for revenues - 3D NAND, China, and OLED represent multi-year investment cycles that can allow AMAT to outgrow peers for next few years. AMAT is executing well - delivering their long term EPS target of $2, two years in advance- and management team is building solid credibility with investors. We see upcoming analyst day, and improving memory fundamentals as positive catalysts in near term. Increasing TP to $34 (from $29)."
Shares of Applied Materials closed at $27.68 yesterday.
