11:58 EDTMXIMSemtech hits 52-week low after Q1 results, Q2 outlook miss expectations
Shares of Semtech Corporation (SMTC), a supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products, are falling after the company’s first quarter results and second quarter outlook trailed analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Semtech yesterday reported Q1 earnings per share of 27c excluding items and revenue of $130.1M, trailing analysts' consensus estimates of 28c and $132.51M, respectively. Semtech reported Q1 adjusted gross margin of 60.8%. The company also said it increased its stock buyback authorization to $100M. It had $30M remaining under a previous buyback plan. Looking ahead to Q2, Semtech forecast adjusted EPS of 21c-26c and revenue of $120M-$130M, well below analysts' consensus estimates of 37c and $1.41.65M, respectively. The company also forecast Q2 adjusted gross profit margin of 60%-60.4%. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Mohan Maheswaran, the company's Chief Executive Officer, noted that Semtech saw strong demand in Q1 from its enterprise computing and communication end-markets driven by the datacenter and PON market segments. However, Maheswaran said that demand from its largest smartphone customer was "much lower than anticipated," which led to results that were at the lower end of its guidance range. Semtech previously projected Q1 EPS of 27c-30c and revenue of $130M-$136M. Maheswaran said demand for the company's LoRa wireless platforms is seeing an acceleration. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, research firm B. Riley downgraded Semtech to Sell from Neutral after the company's Q1 results missed expectations. The firm cut its price target for shares to $21 from $26. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the in the analog and mixed-signal semiconductor space include Texas Instruments (TXN), Maxim Integrated Products (MXIM) and Analog Devices (ADI). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Semtech fell $3.41, or nearly 14%, to $21.21 on nearly five times its average daily trading volume. The stock continues to hit fresh 52-week lows during the session. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost approximately 18% over the past 12 months.
