Factors to Note

TE Connectivity’s footprint consolidation plans and stringent cost cutting strategies are expected to get reflected in the fiscal third-quarter results.

Further, strong momentum across defence, medical and energy businesses may have driven the industrial segment’s performance in the to-be-reported quarter.

Additionally, solid demand for data and devices in cloud applications and data centers courtesy of increasing work-from-home trend amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic might have benefited the communications segment’s performance in the quarter under review.

Moreover, acquisition of First Sensor is expected to have favored TE Connectivity’s sensors business in the fiscal third quarter.

Growing proliferation of autonomous features is also expected to have acted as a tailwind. Additionally, increasing production of hybrid and electric vehicles is anticipated to have contributed to the fiscal third-quarter performance.

Furthermore, TE Connectivity’s company’s strong focus on content growth across its businesses might have driven the to-be-reported quarter’s performance. Moreover, the company’s expanding content in engineered solutions is likely to get reflected in the fiscal third-quarter results.

However, coronavirus-led disruptions are expected to have weighed on the company’s performance in the commercial transportation and commercial aerospace market in the to-be-reported quarter.
