Applied Materials faces a tough second half

By most indications, Applied Materials is sitting pretty. The company, which is the number one supplier of semiconductor manufacturing equipment in the world and also sells related services and software, sports a price-to-earnings ratio of 19.7 -- lower than the 22.1 ratio of its closest publicly-traded competitor, KLA-Tencor (down $1.48 to $47.64).
