Jan 20 (Reuters) - Cellphone chipmaker Skyworks Solutions Inc (SWKS.O) posted better-than-expected quarterly results and forecast second-quarter above market estimates on firm demand for smartphones, tablets and a shift to 4G.
For January-March quarter Skyworks, which competes with RF Micro Devices RFMD.O, Anadigics ANAD.O and Triquint Semiconductor TQNT.O, forecast second-quarter earnings of 38-40 cents a share, excluding items, on revenue of $310-$320 million.
Analysts were looking for earnings of 37 cents a share, before items, on revenue of $306.5 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
In the October-December quarter, Skyworks net income doubled to $60.9 million, or 32 cents a share, from $28 million, or 16 cents a share, a year ago. Excluding items, it earned 41 cents a share, above analysts’ view of 40 cents a share.
Revenue at the company, which counts Apple (AAPL.O) Nokia NOK1V.HE, and Samsung Electronics (005930.KS) as its customers, rose 37 percent to $335.1 million, above analysts expectation of $334 million.
Earlier in the week, Skyworks’ key customer Apple Inc (AAPL.O), which contributes about more than 15 percent to its revenue, posted blockbuster results and a strong outlook on dazzling sales of the iPhone and iPad.
Shares of the Woburn, Massachusetts-based company, which have nearly doubled in the last sixth months, were trading down $0.83 at $29.20 in after-market trade. It closed at $30.03 on Thursday on Nasdaq (Reporting by Swati Chitnis in Bangalore; Editing by Prem Udayabhanu)
