Factors to Note

In the fourth quarter, the company is expected to have continued gaining from a strong demand environment across its Industrial/Automotive Test, Storage Test, and Industrial Automation businesses.

Teradyne’s Semiconductor Test revenues are likely to have benefited from persistent growth in 5G infrastructure, strengthening of mobility, strong networking and growing memory test spending in the to-be-reported quarter.

The growing momentum in the Memory test business, owing to the strong demand for flash and DRAM, is expected to have been another major positive.

Improving global manufacturing conditions and the proliferation of new technically advanced products are expected to have contributed well to the company’s Industrial Automation business in the fourth quarter.

Strengthening system-on-a-chip (SOC) test shipments, owing to the increased demand for mobility-related test capacity, are expected to have driven top-line growth of Teradyne in the quarter under review.

Strengthening momentum across the UltraFLEXplus platform is expected to have driven Teradyne’s growth in the SOC Test market.

The increasing complexity of processors and technologies, popularity of its products, growing demand for millimeter-wave test capabilities, and persistent design wins are expected to have driven its fourth-quarter performance.

The solid demand for ultra-wideband is likely to have benefited the company’s LitePoint business in the quarter to be reported.

However, uncertainties associated with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic are expected to have been concerning. Moreover, shipment delays in the Industrial Automation business, owing to a challenging supply environment, are expected to have acted as headwinds.
