Analog Devices Shares Surge 7% on Q1 Beat & Strong Guidance

Analog Devices (NASDAQ:ADI) shares gained more than 7% on Wednesday after the company reported its Q1 results, with EPS of $2.75 coming in better than the Street estimate of $2.61. Revenue of $3.25 billion beat the Street estimate of $3.15 billion.

While lead times have shortened for much of the portfolio and longer-term cancellations have risen, the company cited still-strong demand in its core end markets of Industrial and Automotive and resumed its more bullish tone that it adopted on its November earnings call.

For Q2, the company expects EPS in the range of $2.65-$2.85, compared to the Street estimate of $2.42. Q2 revenue is seen at $3.1-3.3 billion, beating the Street estimate of $3.03 billion, once again bucking the trend of its competitors which almost universally guided below Street expectations this earnings season.
