Before we dive into how investors and analysts have reacted as of late, let's take a quick look at the most recent earnings report in order to get a better handle on the important drivers.

SYNNEX Q3 Earnings and Revenues Top Estimates, Up Y/Y

SYNNEX delivered stellar third-quarter fiscal 2020 results, wherein its top and bottom lines surpassed respective the Zacks Consensus Estimate and marked year-over-year improvements as well.

Revenues grew to $6.47 billion from the year-ago quarter’s $6.20 billion. The top-line figure also beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $5.72 billion.

Further, the company is moving toward its previous announcement of splitting SYNNEX Technology Solutions and Concentrix into two publicly-traded companies.
