Microchip’s earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in the trailing four quarters, delivering an earnings surprise of 6.9%, on average.


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

Factors to Consider

Microchip is riding on consistent strength in its analog and microcontroller businesses. The company is expected to have gained from dominance of its 8, 16 and 32-bit microcontrollers.

The company’s fiscal first-quarter results are likely to reflect gains from demand recovery across its global business environment, particularly in automotive, industrial and consumer end-markets, on easing of lockdowns and relaxation of shelter-in-place guidelines.

Improving demand across office equipment and communication infrastructures, courtesy of requirement for cloud computing solutions and booming PC market amid the coronavirus crisis-led work-from-home wave, bodes well.

Strong demand for Microchip’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) to USB-C adapter, as well as META-DX1 suite of Ethernet products, may have driven microcontrollers’ fiscal first-quarter performance.

Microchip’s fiscal first-quarter results are likely to have benefited from synergies from acquisitions, including Microsemi, Micrel and Atmel.

Sluggish enterprise spending and supply-chain disruptions owing to coronavirus crisis are expected to have hurt top-line growth.
