Flextronics International Shares Popped: What You Need to Know

Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.

What: Flextronics International (Nasdaq: FLEX  ) shares jumped 10% today after the company announced positive earnings.

So What: Yesterday the company released adjusted earnings of $0.23 per share, which beat analyst estimates of $0.20. Quarterly revenue was up 27% to $7.4 billion and guidance of $7.5 billion to $7.7 billion was above estimates.

Now What: Analysts have been concerned that a low 2.9% operating margins leaves little room for error in Flextronics business but this hasn't slowed Flextronics down. With revenue gaining momentum and management pushing toward a higher operating margin of 3.5% I see an undervalued company waiting to breakout. I see this move as a buying opportunity because of solid results and management that is aggressively buying back shares with free cash flow.
