12:15 EDTNTAP, HILL, FIO, EMC, SNDKSanDisk plummets after Q3 revenue outlook disappoints
Shares of flash memory manufacturer SanDisk (SNDK) are sinking after the company’s third quarter revenue outlook trailed analysts’ consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, SanDisk reported second quarter adjusted EPS of $1.41 and revenue of $1.63B, beating estimates of $1.39 and $1.6B, respectively. The company said Q2 adjusted gross margin came in at 48%. President and Chief Executive Officer Sanjay Mehrotra commented that SSD solutions comprised 29% of Q2 revenue, compared to 16% in the year ago quarter, "demonstrating strong progress in driving our strategic priorities." Mehrotra said the Q2 results positions the company to deliver a record year in 2014. WHAT’S NOTABLE: SanDisk forecast Q3 revenue of $1.675B-$1.725B, below consensus estimates of $1.74B. The comapny also guided Q3 adjusted gross margin at 47%-49%. On the company's earnings conference call, management said it expects the second half of 2014 to be "somewhat supply constrained." The company expects the Fusion-io (FIO) deal to close in Q3, and sees it being accretive to earnings in the second half of fiscal 2015, though initial synergies will be "modest." SanDisk sees fiscal year 2014 cash capital expenditures of approximately $600M and is still targeting returning 100% of free cash flow to shareholders. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was mostly positive. Research firm Piper Jaffray said SanDisk’s post-earnings pull back represents a buying opportunity. The firm, which reiterated an Overweight rating with a $110 price target, believes favorable trends for 2015 remain intact. BofA/Merrill reiterated its Buy rating and $125 price target on the shares. Conversely, Summit Research said it believes SanDisk's valuation is stretched and priced to perfection. The firm believes margins have peaked and 3D NAND issues remain a concern. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, SanDisk fell $13.72 or about 12.64%, to $94.20 on nearly four times its average daily trading volume. Despite today’s pull back, the stock has gained approximately 59% over the past twelve months, and 34% year to date. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that produce memory include NetApp (NTAP), EMC (EMC) and Dot Hill Systems (HILL).
