Microchip’s earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in the trailing four quarters, delivering an earnings surprise of 3.93%, on average.

Let’s see how things have shaped up for Microchip prior to this announcement:

Factors to Consider

Microchip has been riding on consistent strength in its analog and microcontroller businesses. The company is expected to have gained from the dominance of its 8, 16 and 32-bit microcontrollers in the fiscal first quarter.

Microcontrollers represented 56.7% of Microchip’s fiscal fourth-quarter 2022 revenues.

Improving demand across office equipment and communication infrastructures, courtesy of the requirement for cloud-computing solutions, is expected to have aided the company.

However, supply-chain constraints, as well as lockdowns in China, are expected to have hurt top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter. Rising commodity costs and labor costs are expected to have kept gross margin under pressure.

What Our Model Says

Per the Zacks model, the combination of a positive Earnings ESP and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold) increases the odds of an earnings beat. But that’s not the case here.

Microchip has an Earnings ESP of 0.00% and a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell), currently. You can uncover the best stocks to buy or sell before they’re reported with our Earnings ESP Filter.
