Maxim beats analysts’ estimates

In fiscal 2Q16, Maxim’s revenue fell 10% year-over-year to $511 million, topping the analyst estimate of $505 million. The 34% revenue growth in the automotive segment was offset by declines in the computing, consumer, industrial and communications, and data center segments.

The company’s non-GAAP[1. generally accepted accounting principles] earnings per share fell 3% year-over-year to $0.32, in line with the analyst estimate.


On a non-GAAP basis, the company’s gross margin rose from 60.3% in fiscal 2Q15 to 60.5% in fiscal 2Q16 despite a decline in sales. The company reduced its non-GAAP operating expenses by 13% year-over-year to $187 million in fiscal 2Q16. The decline was a result of the company’s efforts to streamline its product portfolio. However, its non-GAAP net income fell ~1% year-over-year to $92.8 million.

Even Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has managed to reduce its expenses by streamlining its product portfolio.

Cash position

In fiscal 2Q16, the company earned $182 million in cash from operating activities and spent $14 million in capital expenditure, $23.15 million in share buybacks, and $85.7 million in dividend payments. As of December 26, 2015, the company’s total cash reserve stood at $1.77 billion and long-term debt stood at $1 billion. The company earned $50 million in cash by selling off its facilities in San Jose and Batangas, the Philippines.

The company declared a dividend of $0.30. This means an annual dividend of $1.2 and an annual dividend yield of 3.87%.

In the next part of this series, we’ll look at the key segments that drove the company’s revenue in fiscal 2Q16. The PowerShares QQQ ETF (ETF) has just above 8% exposure to semiconductor stocks, including 0.19% to MXIM and 0.26% to XLNX.
