Broadcom’s earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all the trailing four quarters, the average earnings surprise being 2.14%.
Let’s see how things have shaped up for Broadcom prior to this announcement:
Factors to Consider
Broadcom’s top-line growth is expected to have benefited from strong demand for its networking solutions that includes Tomahawk and Jericho portfolio. The strong adoption of Tomahawk 5 for data center switching by hyperscalers is expected to have driven top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter.
Continued investment in new generation ethernet fabric and generative AI are expected to have accelerated Broadcom’s business at hyperscalers. It expects networking revenues to be strong and increase about 20% year over year in the fiscal second quarter.
Continued strong adoption of its next-generation MegaRAID and storage adapters is expected to have driven Broadcom’s storage connectivity revenues in the to-be-reported quarter. Broadcom expects server storage connectivity revenues to increase to 20% year over year.
The robust adoption of Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E for access gateways, courtesy of solid demand from telcos of 10G PON and cable operators of DOCSIS 3.1, is expected to have contributed to revenue growth across the broadband end market in the fiscal second quarter. Broadband revenues are expected to grow 10% on a year-over-year basis.
Acceleration in generative AI deployment and an expanding product portfolio is expected to have driven top-line growth.
