Broadcom Ltd. (AVGO) Tops Q2 EPS by 15c, Sales In-Line
Broadcom Ltd. (NASDAQ: AVGO) reported Q2 EPS of $2.53, $0.15 better than the analyst estimate of $2.38. Revenue for the quarter came in at $3.54 billion versus the consensus estimate of $3.55 billion.
"We delivered solid second quarter revenue, while exceeding EPS expectations for our first quarter operating as a combined company. Our increased scale and diversity is already proving very resilient, with strong product cycles in our now largest segment, wired, offsetting weaker demand in our enterprise storage and wireless segments,” said Hock Tan, President and CEO of Broadcom Limited. “We are expecting a robust third quarter, led by strong growth in wireless revenue, and continued strength in wired networking, and remain confident in our ability to leverage earnings growth as we work towards full integration and achievement of our operating model.”
