Broadcom future outlook

For the fiscal second quarter, Broadcom forecasts $7.9 billion in revenue versus analysts at $7.43 billion. On CNBC’s “Closing Bell”, Bernstein’s Stacy Rasgon said:

It was a really solid beat and raise. The quarter looks pretty good. Margins look really good. They did 75.5% gross margins and may even be guiding them up again, at least implicitly. They have enough dry powder on top the buyback programme to execute a deal if they find one.

Broadcom has a target of $10 billion in stock repurchase this year. $3.10 billion of that, the chipmaker revealed, has been executed already. Shares are still down over 10% for the year.
