18:27 EDTMUSemiconductor stocks under pressure after TI, Qualcomm report financial results
Semiconductor stocks are under pressure after earnings reports from Texas Instruments (TXN) and Qualcomm (QCOM). TEXAS INSTRUMENTS: TI reported first quarter results that were lower than analyst expectations, and gave second quarter guidance below consensus estimates. In its Q1 earnings press release, Texas Instruments said its outlook for Q2 is for earnings per share between 60c-70c and revenue in the range of $3.12B-$3.38B. "Our estimates assume continuing weakness in our communications equipment and personal electronics markets, particularly for wireless infrastructure equipment and PCs, respectively. We also do not expect a near-term rebound in foreign currency exchange rates. The annual effective tax rate for 2015 is expected to be about 30%." QUALCOMM: Qualcomm reported Q2 results that were better than analyst's average estimates, but lowered its fiscal year 2015 EPS and revenue views. Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf said, "While we remain confident in the significant growth opportunities ahead, we are reducing our QCT outlook for fiscal 2015, primarily due to the increased impact of customer share shifts within the premium tier and a decline in our share at a large customer." PRICE ACTION: In after-hours trading, shares of Texas Instruments are down over 6%, while Qualcomm shares are down almost 3%. Other publicly traded companies in the space include AMD (AMD), Intel (INTC), Marvell (MRVL), Microchip (MCHP), Micron (MU), NVIDIA (NVDA), Altera (ALTR), Xilinx (XLNX), and Maxim Integrated (MXIM).
