Cirrus Logic, Inc. Price and Consensus
In the last reported quarter, it delivered non-GAAP earnings per share of 53 cents, which outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 30 cents as well as came in higher than the year-ago figure of 35 cents.
Total revenues of $242.6 million also surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $226 million and improved 2% year over year.
Let’s see how things have shaped up for the upcoming announcement.
Factors at Play
Cirrus Logic’s fiscal second-quarter performance might have been affected by the decline in smartphone volumes due to the pandemic-induced shift in demand.
Additionally, intense competition, adverse currency translations and a volatile macroeconomic environment were primary challenges for the company during the quarter under review.
Nonetheless, Cirrus Logic’s quarterly performance is likely to have benefited from robust demand for certain components. Solid customer engagement across its portfolio is anticipated to have been a tailwind as well.
Rising demand for the company’s products in applications such as tablets, laptops and digital headsets is likely to have been a consistent growth driver. Buoyant demand for smart codecs, boosted amplifiers and haptic drivers in the Android market is also expected to have been a key growth catalyst.
