11:31 EDTCRUS, SWKS, BRCM, QCOM, RFMD, NXPICirrus Logic tumbles after reducing long-term margin outlook
Cirrus Logic (CRUS), which develops audio components for mobile devices, is sinking after the company indicated that its profit margins would drop over the longer term. WHAT'S NEW: Cirrus disclosed in slides for today's Barclays Global Technology Conference that it expects its gross margins to be in the mid 40s percentage level over the long-term. The company had previously expected its gross margins to be 50%-52% over the long-term, according to research firm Oppenheimer. Cirrus' gross margin in its quarter ended in March was 49%. Cirrus explained that it expects to see increased pricing pressure in the smartphone market, as well as reduced prices for its products. Over the long-term the company expects its revenue to increase 15% annually on average. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Oppenheimer analyst Rick Schafer wrote that Cirrus' position is "increasingly precarious." Apple, which represents about 85% of Cirrus' sales, is placing various pressures on Cirrus, the analyst wrote. Moreover, the components maker does not have any growth catalysts and is unlikely to outperform, he added. Schafer expects Cirrus to report weaker than expected results going forward, and he kept a Perform rating on the stock. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that make components for smartphones could also be affected by the trends identified by Cirrus. Among the other companies in this category are Skyworks (SWKS), Broadcom (BRCM), Qualcomm (QCOM), RF Micro Devices (RFMD), and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI). TODAY'S PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Cirrus tumbled 15.5% to $18.65, Skyworks gave back 1.4% to $22.90, Broadcom lost 0.3% to $33.60, Qualcomm retreated 2% to $64, and NXP Semiconductors gave back 1.75% to $28.75.
