Why is this still not moving up after a great ER and guidence?
Huge buying opportunity!!!
People need patience this will go up. The report reinforced what was already known. STM did the same thing then shot up the following week. Next week will be up just not as fast as we all would like.
I think AMAT can reach $50 before this upcoming earning. Give it 3 months.
Going big on this one. I think the earnings are going to way exceed expectations and we are going to see a quick gain of 4-5$
Anyone understands why with such a great ER and forward outlook, the stock is not up big , and willing to share your thoughts? I am very puzzled. May be next week, it will go up.
it has been upgraded to $55 now is not a good time to sell
This board is useless with these two morons. Probably one in the same. Ciao
Gonna be a GREAT year for AMAT. Bank it.
This reminds me of AAOI. They beat estimates and didn't move much right after. Next 3 days was up 30%.
I'm surprise not up big after great ER.
Out of the park!

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT) today reported results for its second quarter ended April 30, 2017.
Compared to the same period last year, net sales increased by 45 percent to $3.55 billion; gross margin grew 4.1 points to 45.1 percent; operating margin increased by 9.2 points to 26.5 percent; and earnings per share (EPS) grew 162 percent to $0.76. On a non-GAAP adjusted basis, gross margin grew 3.6 points to 46.3 percent, operating margin increased by 8.6 points to 27.8 percent, and EPS grew 132 percent to $0.79.
The company generated $898 million in cash from operations and returned $390 million to shareholders through stock repurchases and cash dividends.
"Applied Materials delivered the highest quarterly revenue and earnings in our history, and we've now set new earnings records for four quarters in a row," said Gary Dickerson, president and CEO. "Across the company we have tremendous momentum as our markets are strong and getting stronger, and we're sustainably growing faster than these markets by expanding our served opportunity and gaining share."
Raised next quarter by 15%. PT more than $10 above current price and barely up 1%. Dissapointing. Should be trading at $46 plus on those numbers
Great report, but maybe a lot of it was already priced in. No matter, it's after hours. We'll wait to see what the dawn brings. I fully expect a nice up-tick tomorrow.
AMAT is consistently beating estimates and increasing profits. Very valuable company.
I'm out 😁. Got my quick $2.50. This is probably a great stock to hold long term for those so inclined
