Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Microchip Technology stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Microchip’s Q4 earnings and revenues declined year over year. Sluggish demand across automotive, industrial and consumer home appliance end-markets owing to coronavirus crisis-induced broad-based macroeconomic weakness led to the decline. Notably, shares have underperformed the industry in the year-to-date period. However, coronavirus crisis-induced supply chain disruptions led to sequential increase in demand across communication and data center end-markets. Moreover, solid demand of microcontrollers holds promise. The company is also anticipated to witness strength in medical end market, driven by growth in demand for hospital equipment. Further, improving demand across office equipment and communication infrastructure, courtesy of requirement for cloud computing solutions amid coronavirus crisis led work-from-home wave, holds promise."
