Trend in Estimate Revision

For the first quarter, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings has remained stable at $1.04 per share over the past 30 days. This indicates an increase of 4% from the year-ago reported figure.

The consensus mark for revenues is pegged at $759.6 million, implying an increase of 7.8% from the year-ago reported figure.

Factors to Note

Teradyne’s semiconductor Test revenues are likely to have got a boost in first-quarter 2021 owing to persistent growth in 5G infrastructure, strengthening of mobility, strong networking and growing memory test spending.

Markedly, the Industrial Automation business saw an improvement in the last reported quarter. The trend is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter due to improving global manufacturing conditions and new products.

Stronger-than-expected System-on-a-Chip test shipments driven by increased demand for mobility-related test capacity are expected to have aided revenue growth in the to-be-reported quarter.

Increasing complexity of processors and technologies, popularity of its products, growing demand for millimeter wave test capabilities — both in Semi Test and at LitePoint — and persistent design wins are expected to have driven its performance in the to-be-reported quarter.

However, weakness in a few end markets served by the company may have been a headwind during the quarter.

For the to-be-reported quarter, management expects total revenues in the range of $720-$780 million. Non-GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations are likely to be in the range of $0.95-$1.11.
