Microchip’s earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all the trailing four quarters, delivering an earnings surprise of 3.07% on average.
Let’s see how things have shaped up for the company prior to this announcement:
Factors to Consider
Microchip is riding on consistent strength in its analog and microcontroller businesses. It is expected to have gained from the dominance of its 8, 16 and 32-bit microcontrollers in the fiscal third quarter.
Microcontrollers represented 56.3% of the company’s third-quarter fiscal 2023 revenues.
Microchip’s fiscal fourth-quarter results are expected to benefit from strong industrial, automotive, aerospace and defense, data center, and communications infrastructure end markets. Nevertheless, weakness in the consumer end market is expected to have hurt its top-line growth.
Supply-chain constraints are likely to have hurt the company’s top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter. Raging inflation and higher interest rates are expected to have hurt profitability.
