10:10 EDTSWKSChip makers rise following Skyworks positive preannouncement
Shares of a number of semiconductor makers are climbing after one of the companies in the sector, Skyworks (SWKS), preannounced stronger than expected results. WHAT'S NEW: Skyworks, which develops chips for cell phones, raised its fourth quarter earnings per share outlook to $1.08 from $1.00. Analysts' consensus estimate was $1.01. The chip maker increased its Q4 revenue guidance to $718M from $680M. Analysts' consensus estimate was $679.5M. "Skyworks’ upwardly revised outlook demonstrates the broad-based strength of our business and our ability to capitalize on positive underlying market trends to connect everyone and everything, all the time,” said Skyworks CEO David Aldrich. "These multi-year technology trends are setting the stage for us to outperform the broader semiconductor industry in the December quarter and for the foreseeable future," the CEO added. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Skyworks' positive report comes less than a week after another semiconductor maker, Microchip (MCHP), preannounced lower than expected revenue and said it thought the sector had entered a correction. Semiconductor stocks have sold off sharply since Microchip's preannouncement and pessimistic comments. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Skyworks surged 6.4% to $48.24, Intel (INTC) rose 1.5% to $31.94, NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) rose 1.2% to $54.55, STMicroelectronics (STM) advanced 2% to $6.82, and Avago Technologies (AVG) gained fractionally to $69.30.
