Microchip components maker Analog Devices, Inc. ( ADI ) late Monday said its fiscal fourth quarter profit more than doubled from last year on sharply higher revenue.

The Norwood, MA-based company reported fiscal fourth quarter net income of $225 million, or 73 cents per share, compared with $105.6 million, or 36 cents per share, in the year-ago period.

Sales surged 37% from last year to $770 million.

On average, Wall Street analysts expected a smaller profit of 70 cents per share, on $756 million in revenue.

Its somewhat muted forecast sent its shares lower, however - Analog Devices shares fell 51 cents, or -1.4%, in premarket trading Tuesday.
