13:07 EDTBRCMEarnings Preview: Broadcom to report how sales to Apple, others impacted Q4
Broadcom (BRCM) is expected to report Q4 earnings after the close on Tuesday, January 29, with a conference call scheduled for 4:45 pm ET. Broadcom is a global semiconductor company that operates in three segments: Broadband Communications, Mobile & Wireless, and Infrastructure & Networking... EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 73c on revenue of $2.07B. The consensus range is 64c-81c for EPS on revenue of $2.02B-$2.35B, according to First Call. Along with its Q3 earnings, Broadcom said it expected Q4 revenue of about $1.95B-$2.1B. During its analyst day in December, Broadcom narrowed that revenue view to $2B-$2.1B, citing slightly better-than-expected revenue in its Mobile & Wireless business... LAST QUARTER: Broadcom reported adjusted Q3 EPS of 79c on revenue of $2.13B, which beat the consensus expectations at that time in October. Broadcom reported an adjusted product gross margin of 52.1% for Q3 and guided its adjusted product gross margin to be flat to up slightly sequentially in Q4... RESEARCH: Early this month, Citigroup removed Broadcom (BRCM) from its Top Picks Live list in favor or Qualcomm (QCOM). However, Citi maintained a Buy rating and $41 price target on Broadcom shares. During this month, a number of moves lower made by Broadcom's stock have been attributed to weakness in Apple (AAPL), one of its key customers. However, in a note to investors sent about a week before Apple reported its own quarterly results, Pacific Crest said Broadcom should be bought on iPhone related weakness. Pacific Crest analyst Michael McConnell wrote at that time that growth in Samsung smartphones and Apple's iPad should offset any weakness for Broadcom caused by slower iPhone growth. Pacific Crest maintains an Outperform rating on Broadcom... PRICE ACTION: Since the day after Apple (AAPL) reported its disappointing revenue and guidance, January 24, Broadcom shares are down a bit over 3%. However, even with that recent weakness, Broadcom's stock has risen over 1.5% since the day after its last quarterly report. In early afternoon trading ahead of tonight's report, Broadcom is down about 0.4% to $33.92.

12:41 EDTBRCMIntel advances after analyst predicts mobile unit rebound coming
Shares of Intel (INTC) are advancing in a down market after Wells Fargo wrote that the company's mobile chip business could rebound significantly in coming quarters. WHAT'S NEW: Intel's mobile chip business could boost the company's growth and even enable it to beat earnings expectations, Wells Fargo wrote in a note to investors today. The chip maker's shipments of 4G modems should start rising significantly in the third quarter or fourth quarter of this year, the firm stated. The company has probably won some deals to provide LTE modems for smartphones and Samsung is likely one of the chip maker's initial customers, the firm wrote. Broadcom's (BRCM) decision to exit the baseband market probably improved Intel's position in the 4G market, Wells Fargo contended. Meanwhile, Intel said that by this year's holiday season, it should be ready to launch chips for mobile devices that are smaller than those of a key competitor, TSMC (TSM), Wells noted. Sales generated by Intel's mobile and communications unit may have bottomed last quarter or could do so during the current quarter, the firm believes. The unit's operating losses are likely to drop throughout this year, before falling sharply in the quarter ended March 2015, Wells estimated. The unit may approach break even by the end of 2015, the firm added. Wells kept an Outperform rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On July 15, Intel reported stronger than expected results for its quarter ended in June. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Intel rose 43c, or 1.3%, to $34.13.
