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: Shares of Skyworks Solutions (Nasdaq: SWKS ) have fallen by as much as 21% today, after the company updated guidance and kicked off its annual analyst day.
So what: The company is expecting fourth quarter revenue to be right around $420 million, which is actually on the high end of its previously provided guidance, which called for between $415 million and $420 million. Adjusted earnings per share should be $0.52, even above its previous forecast. The company is also hosting its analyst day today.
Now what: That guidance represents just an 8% sequential increase, which is more than rivals like Avago Technologies (Nasdaq: AVGO ) are expecting, but less than what TriQuint Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TQNT ) sees in its future. It would seem that something the company is sharing at its analyst day is causing some pessimism among investors. Unfortunately, at this point, there's not a lot of information as to what the precise culprit may be.
