    Any bets on Q2 sales numbers?

    Will FSL pull enough shipments into this past week from July to break $950M? What your bet on the number? Break $1B? No way, or yes, way?

    • Welcome to FSL board. I post some guesses in the past, around the earning release date. So, now is the time to do it again:

      - Revenues: Wall Street will assume them to be in the upper limit of the projected range, based on the management preference for upside surprises. I would say even better at 1.050 B. If we look at the SIA reports about global semiconductor sales in Apr and May, they are flat (2 months) yoy. FSL will ride the market, last year they had 1.029 B, Maybe it is the rising trend of three months Mar/Apr/May that tells us a 6% improvement but it may not be sustained in June.

      - Operating earnings: 140 mil

      - Net income: 10-20 mil (after paying the debt interest)

      Nothing to be overly excited. What I do not know is the forecast. Maybe it will not be that rosy, flat to 3% better.
