15:07 EDTSNDKEarnings Preview: Sandisk reports after cutting revenue forecast
SanDisk (SNDK) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings after the close on Wednesday, January 21, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. SanDisk manufactures data storage solutions, including removable and embedded Flash memory and solid-state drives. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.27 on revenue of $1.73B. The consensus range is $1.15-$1.62 for EPS on revenue of $1.72B-$1.73B, according to First Call. On January 12, SanDisk cut its revenue outlook for Q4 to $1.73B from $1.8B-$1.85B. It added that non-GAAP gross margin for the quarter is expected to be approximately 45%, compared to the previously guided range of 47%-49%. "The lower revenue was primarily due to weaker than expected sales of retail and iNAND products," SanDisk explained. LAST QUARTER: On October 16, SanDisk reported third quarter adjusted earnings per share of $1.45 and revenue of $1.75B, compared to expectations of $1.33 and $1.77B, respectively. At that time, SanDisk president and CEO Sanjay Mehrotra said demand for NAND flash continued to be strong across mobile, client and enterprise. On its Q3 earnings call, SanDisk said it was on track for Fusion-io to add to earnings in the second half of fiscal 2015. STREET RESEARCH: On the day of SanDisk's revenue warning, Needham downgraded SanDisk to Hold from Buy, citing the gross margin decline in the company's negative Q4 pre-announcement. Summit Research also downgraded SanDisk to Hold that day, while SanDisk was downgraded to Hold from Buy at Drexel Hamilton the next day. Piper Jaffray, however, viewed SanDisk's lowered Q4 revenue outlook as a "near-term reset" and said it continues to expect "solid ongoing demand" for NAND into 2016. Piper says its long-term thesis on shares of SanDisk remains unchanged. It lowered its price target for shares to $105 and $106 and reiterated an Overweight rating on the stock. Yesterday, Nomura downgraded SanDisk to Reduce from Neutral to reflect worsening product mix as removables continue to decline. The firm, which lowered its price target on the stock to $65 from $70, also noted the company's tough embedded comps and low dividend yield. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, shares of SanDisk have declined about 9.5%. Since January 1, SanDisk shares are down about 18%. Ahead of tonight's report, SanDisk is up almost 2% to $80.23 in afternoon trading.
