Cypress Semiconductor Corporation Price and EPS Surprise
Factors to Consider
Cypress Semiconductor’s strength in the industrial and automotive segment, as well as expanding presence in the IoT market — driven by acquisitions, product launches and consistent execution — are anticipated to boost the top line in the to-be-reported quarter.
Improving demand from industrial and Internet infrastructure, especially 4.5G and 5G customers, for the company’s flash memory products is likely to keep up the momentum in the Memory Products Division (MPD).
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for MPD revenues is pegged at $199 million.
Growth in the microcontroller business and strong demand for PSoC products are expected to be tailwinds for the Microcontroller and Connectivity Division (MCD) business in the quarter to be reported. However, slowdown across various MCD business units may impact this business unit.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for MCD revenues is currently pegged at $334 million.
Softness in the consumer end market and sluggishness in the MCD business are concerns for its upcoming results. Further, the ongoing trade tension between the United States and China is an overhang.
