Garmin’s strength across fitness and marine segments is expected to have benefited its first-quarter performance.
In the marine segment, robust chartplotters and advanced sonar technology are expected to have contributed well to the segment’s top-line growth in the quarter under review. Also, growing popularity of boating and fishing amid the ongoing pandemic is likely to have aided the Marine segment’s first-quarter performance. Markedly, solid momentum across the company’s advanced wearables and cycling products is likely to have continued aiding the fitness segment’s performance during the to-be-reported quarter. Further, contributions from the Firstbeat Analytics acquisition are expected to have benefited the segment. Further, robust adventure watches are expected to have benefited Garmin’s outdoor segment performance in the quarter under review. Also, integration of the solar harvesting technology in adventure smartwatches is expected to have remained a tailwind for the segment. However, sluggishness in the aviation segment is expected to have been a concern. Uncertainties associated with the ongoing pandemic are likely to have continued hurting its OEM partners. Nevertheless, strengthening momentum across Specialty RV and truck categories is anticipated to have contributed well to the company’s quarterly performance. What Our Model Says
