Jefferies analyst, Mark Lipacis, reiterated his Hold rating on shares of Marvell (NASDAQ: MRVL) after the July quarter EPS beat but the outlook for the October quarter was weaker than expected. July quarter sales of $626M was slightly below consensus $630M (guidance $625-635M) but GM of 54.6% was above consensus 53% (guidance 52-54%) resulting in an 18c EPS beat, vs. consensus $0.11.

The real sticking point is guidance. Marvel's Oct Q sales/EPS outlook of $614M/$0.11 (midpts) were 450bps and 4c below consensus.

No change to the price target of $13.
