Super Micro (SMCI) Stock Jumps 13.3%: Will It Continue to Soar?
Super Micro Computer SMCI shares rallied 13.3% in the last trading session to close at $51.63. This move can be attributable to notable volume with a higher number of shares being traded than in a typical session. This compares to the stock's 5.1% gain over the past four weeks.
The increase in share price can be attributed to raising of fourth quarter fiscal 2022 (ended Jun 30, 2022) guidance by the company owing to bump in customer design wins and increase in total IT solution value.
The company now expects net sales to be in the range of $1.58-$1.63 billion compared with earlier guided range of $1.4-$1.48 billion. Non-GAAP earnings are now expected to be in the range of $2.30- $2.40 per share compared with earlier guided range of $1.51- $1.69 per share.
The company is scheduled to report fiscal fourth quarter results on Aug 9, 2022.
This server technology company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $1.55 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +91.4%. Revenues are expected to be $1.44 billion, up 34.7% from the year-ago quarter.
While earnings and revenue growth expectations are important in evaluating the potential strength in a stock, empirical research shows a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements.
For Super Micro, the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has remained unchanged over the last 30 days. And a stock's price usually doesn't keep moving higher in the absence of any trend in earnings estimate revisions. So, make sure to keep an eye on SMCI going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
