Analog Devices Q3 Earnings, Q4 Forecast Miss the Mark (ADI)

Microchip maker Analog Devices, Inc. ( ADI ) on Wednesday posted third quarter earnings and provided a full-year forecast that fell below analyst expectations.

The Norwood, MA-based company reported fiscal third quarter net income of $219.9 million, or 71 cents per share, compared with $199.5 million, or 65 cents per share, in the year-ago period.

Revenue rose 5% from last year to $757.9 million.

On average, Wall Street analysts expected a higher profit of 73 cents per share, on larger revenue of $780 million.

Analog CEO Jerald Fishman defended the results, saying "We believe that most of the revenue shortfall was the result of supply chain recalibration, not a change in underlying demand."

Still, the company provided a fourth quarter outlook that also fell below analyst estimates. ADI said it expects fourth quarter profits to range from 60 cents to 68 cents per share on revenue of $715 million to $755 million. Analysts currently expect 72 cents per share on $780.2 million in revenue for the quarter.

Analog Devices shares fell 73 cents, or -2.3%, in premarket trading Wednesday.
