Semtech (SMTC) to Report Q2 Earnings: What’s in the Offing?

Semtech Corporation (SMTC) is set to report fiscal second-quarter 2020 results on Aug 28. It came up with in-line results in the last reported quarter. The company’s surprise history has been pretty impressive. It beat estimates in three of the last four quarters, with average positive surprise of 1.75%. Semtech has been adversely impacted by mounting competition in the semiconductor space, including slowing demand in China. The resultant pricing pressure could dampen the company’s margins and profitability in the fiscal second quarter. Moreover, seasonality in the consumer segment is a matter of concern and may hamper top-line growth. Also, geopolitical issues, and weakness in both the smartphone and data center end markets could impact its results. However, both industrial and communications end markets might witness strong demand, aiding top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter. The growing need for more efficient energy management in home and industrial settings, increasing electronic system requirements for mobile devices, along with the propagation of green standards will likely drive demand in these segments, thereby bolstering its upcoming results. For the fiscal se...

Media center app maker Plex introduced a new app for Windows and Mac OS Thursday that

Media center app maker Plex introduced a new app for Windows and Mac OS Thursday that comes with some significant changes to its support for desktop PCs. Most notably, Plex is phasing out support for Home Theater PC (HTPC) setups. Plex’s new desptop app also replaces the company’s dedicated Windows Store app, and introduces a new framework for downloading media for offline consumption that will ultimately find its way to its mobile apps as well. Finally, the app also comes with the company’s newly-refreshed user interface, which introduces a navigation sidebar. However, the decision to end support for HTPCs  is likely going to be the most controversial among Plex’s user base. “It marks the end of an era for us, and we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t a little bittersweet,” the Plex team wrote in a blog post. For the uninitiated, HTPCs are dedicated PCs connected to TVs or projectors to access streaming services and downloadable media. This used to be the primary way for early adopters to bring digital media to their TV screens, and apps like Plex owe much of their early popularity to this use case. In fact, Plex, XMBC / Kodi and Boxee all gained significant traction after Microso...
