In the last reported quarter, the company’s adjusted earnings soared 192% year over year to $2.45 per share and beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by a whopping 126.9% as well. Net sales surged 85% to $1.65 billion and also surpassed the consensus mark of $1.23 billion.

For the fiscal fourth quarter, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $1.16 billion, suggesting a 63% jump from the year-ago quarter. The consensus mark for earnings is pinned at 96 cents, calling for an improvement of 128.6% year on year.

Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to this announcement.

Key Factors

Logitech’s fiscal fourth-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from growth in its Video Collaboration business, driven by the spike in work-from-home and learn-from-home trends. Also, the PC peripheral market is witnessing strong traction, which bodes well for the company.

Additionally, demand for its gaming products is likely to have shot up during the quarter to be reported on the heightening popularity of online video games and eSports amid the pandemic-led stay-at-home environment.

Moreover, the Mobile Speakers segment might have rebounded in the quarter under review thanks to the opening of retailers worldwide.
