Broadcom Shares Soar 5% on Q1 Beat & Better Than Expected Guidance

Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) shares surged more than 5% on Friday after the company reported its Q1 results, with EPS of $10.33 coming in better than the Street estimate of $10.18. Revenue was $8.92 billion, slightly above the Street estimate of $8.9 billion.

For Q2/23, the company expects revenue to be approximately $8.7 billion, better than the Street estimate of $8.58 billion. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be approximately 64.5% of projected revenue.

According to the analysts at Deutsche Bank, consistency and stability continue to set the company apart from its peers during a fairly tumultuous time for the semiconductor industry (and the economy as a whole). Notably, management indicated that they expect growth to "moderate" heading into Q2, but believe they can achieve a "soft landing" while still seeing year-over-year growth in H2/23 (due primarily to high-quality revenue mix and aggressive backlog scrubbing).
