14:57 EDTCREEEarnings Preview: Cree to report less than a week after two notch downgrade
Cree (CREE) is expected to report Q2 earnings after the close on Tuesday, January 22, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Cree develops and manufactures lighting-class light emitting diode products, traditional lighting products and semiconductor products for power and radio-frequency applications... EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 30c on revenue of $331.2M. The consensus range is 26c-32c for EPS on revenue of $319.99B-$342.8B, according to First Call. In conjunction with its last earnings report, Cree guided to Q2 adjusted EPS of 27c-31c on revenue of $320M-$340M... LAST QUARTER: Cree reported Q1 adjusted EPS of 27c, narrowly beating the 26c consensus estimate. Q1 revenue, however, came in at $315.8M, which was shy of the consensus $317.89M projection. The company also said its overall backlog was stronger than it was at same point in the prior quarter, although added that its visibility is still limited and the macroeconomic environment remains a headwind... RESEARCH: After the market close last Wednesday, Jefferies downgraded Cree two notches to Underperform from Buy, citing overly optimistic expectations. Earlier that same day, Raymond James said Cree's recent share strength is not sustainable and that the firm believes its Q2 results will modestly disappoint. However, Cantor said it expects Cree to report stronger than expected Q2 results, but that the company's guidance could miss expectations. The next day, Maxim said it expects Cree to report strong Q2 results and that the firm sees upside to Q2 and Q3 consensus estimates... PRICE ACTION: Since the day after last quarter's report, shares of Cree have rallied over 27%. Year-to-date, shares are down nearly 2% and in afternoon trading ahead of tonight's report, Cree is down about 0.8% to $33.49.
