Let’s see how things have shaped up for Broadcom prior to this announcement:
Factors to Consider
Broadcom’s top-line growth is expected to have benefited from strong demand for its networking solutions, which include Tomahawk and Jericho switches. Strong adoption of these solutions due to the rapid adoption of generative AI is expected to have driven networking’s top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter.
Broadcom expects revenues related to generative AI to grow 50% sequentially in the fiscal fourth quarter. It expects networking revenues to rise 20% on a year-over-year basis.
Wireless revenues are expected to grow 20% sequentially.
However, moderate enterprise demand for storage adapters is expected to have hurt storage connectivity revenues, which Broadcom expects to decline in the mid-teens percent on a year-over-year basis.
Broadband revenues are expected to decline year over year in the high-single digits in the fiscal fourth quarter.
