Our approach concludes the company's business moat is average. Our analysis of its moat reveals neither a durable moat or enduring competitive advantages.Applied Materials Inc has a Piotroski F Score of 8 out of 9. The F Score examines changes in profitability, leverage, liquidity, and operating efficiency. Interest coverage of 17.36x, a debt/equity ratio of 41% and a Moat Rank of 300 translate to a strong Financial Strength score.


 momentum
Investment research has shown that stocks with strong performance over the last 6 to 12 months tend to perform better in the medium term than stocks with poor performance over the same period. In fact, the momentum factor is one of the strongest of all the investment factors. The company has seen its stock appreciate by 97.14% over the last 12 months. This performance is strong compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 5. Applied Materials Inc's strong 12 month stock performance will appeal to momentum investors.

Based on our methodology, Applied Materials Inc ranks 68 among the S&P 500 constituents. Investors looking for undervalued dividend stocks will want to closely investigate Applied Materials Inc.

 growth
A company's growth metrics are less important than its valuation, moat, and financial strength. However, a check on growth can be a good way to avoid companies in secular decline. The company's growth in sales, earnings, and book value places it among the bottom third of S&P500 companies. Its 1.2% 5 year annualized EPS growth, 0.6% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of -0.1% speak to its relatively poor ranking.
