What: Shares of Microsemi
So what: It's not clear what all the fuss was about, since the results came in on par with expectations. Revenue was $240.9 million and earnings per share was $0.39. Microsemi sees a profit of between $0.43 and $0.48 next quarter, also in line with the $0.46 that the Street is expecting.
Now what: The list of companies affected by the Thailand floods last year is pretty long and includes Microsemi. The company lost about $3.5 million related to the disaster and related facility closures, but that loss isn't included in its non-GAAP figures, among other things. Needham & Company has also reiterated its strong buy rating and $26 price target, saying it believes that Microsemi's core business remains poised to recover from the floods.
