Why Applied Materials, Inc.(NASDAQ:AMAT) Stock Is a Top Value Stock to Own

- September 28, 2017

Many BNL Members who get text and email notifications when trades are made in the BNL Portfolio have been asking why we added Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT) a couple weeks ago. It is not a stock we have ever covered, yet we are suddenly bullish on AMAT stock.

What led us to AMAT stock was its grade on the HADE Platform. The HADE Platform ranks more than 4,000 stocks in real time based on over 250 machine learning algorithms and metrics, then you can run a real time research report to better understand that grade. Clearly, Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT) ranks very high, and I urge everyone to try out HADE Platform (It’s FREE).

Here are a couple more charts from HADE Platform that really sold us on AMAT stock.

Check out the growth in Applied Materials’ largest segment, nearly 42% last quarter.

AMAT’s Semiconductor Systems business accounts for 67% of the company’s total revenue, but it is 85% of the company’s operating income. We found that information with the click of a button using the HADE Platform’s free “Fundamental Trends” tool. This is incredibly encouraging for long-term investors to see, a company with its fastest growing business also being its largest and most profitable. These are points made in the real time research report on HADE.

Finally, the diversification is astounding.

Yes, Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT) operates in various segments and does not rely solely on its semiconductor business. However, I’m referring to its presence throughout the world, not overly dependent on a single region for success. That’s a good indication of long-term sustainability.

When you look at the growing margins, profits, employee count, market share, and business as a whole, its extremely attractive valuation multiple at 14x forward earnings becomes an afterthought. While we realize that AMAT stock is up more than 50% this year alone, there is a very good chance it is just getting warmed up.
