Analog Devices, Inc. ADI is scheduled to report third-quarter fiscal 2022 results on Aug 17.
For the fiscal third quarter, ADI expects revenues of $3.05 billion (+/- $100 million). The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the same is pegged at $3.06 billion, indicating an improvement of 73.9% from the year-ago reported figure.
Analog Devices anticipates adjusted earnings per share of $2.42 (+/- $0.10) for the quarter under review. The consensus mark for the same is pegged at $2.43 per share, indicating a 41.3% rise from the previous-year reported figure.
Earnings of ADI surpassed estimates in the trailing four quarters, the average being 7.7%.
Factors to Consider
Strength across consumer, communication, industrial and automotive end-markets is expected to have driven the top line of Analog Devices in the fiscal third quarter.
The solid momentum of Analog Devices’ precision signal chain, power franchises, sensing technologies, and wired and wireless connectivity among the factory automation applications is expected to have contributed well to its industrial revenues in the quarter under review.
The company’s power management and RF portfolios are likely to have aided growth across instrumentation and test applications. The upside, in turn, is expected to have driven industrial revenues.
The growing traction across Battery Management System (BMS) and A2B solutions is likely to have driven Analog Devices’ performance in the automotive market in the fiscal third quarter. The rising uptake of BMS solution in the electric vehicle space is likely to have been a tailwind.
Strength in home entertainment, hearables and wearables is expected to have aided ADI’s performance in the consumer market in the to-be-reported quarter.
Apart from these, the growing deployment of 5G is expected to have continued benefiting the company’s performance in the communication end-market.
However, weak momentum across major applications and a leveraged balance sheet are likely to have been concerning. Further, the pandemic-induced supply-chain constraints and geopolitical tensions led by the Russia-Ukraine war are expected to have acted as major overhangs.
