Schafer said:

“Skyworks reported F4Q(Sept) results Thursday. Sales/EPS of $1.01B/$1.94 were just ahead of consensus $1.00B/$1.92. However, F1Q(Dec) outlook of $1.01B/$1.91 missed Street $1.07B/$2.08 impacted by softer iPhone units and China smartphone. Recently closed Avnera acquisition contributed $6M in the quarter and expected ~ $15M in F1Q. Management discussed long-speculated plans for in-house BAW, with production to ramp the next 12-18 months. We see this rounding out SWKS’ “tool-kit” ahead of 5G transition. We see SWKS content up DD(%) or ~$1.50 in iPhone refresh, though softer units appear to be muting growth. Capital allocation story remains intact as mgmt returned $1B+ to shareholders in FY18. SWKS remains positioned to benefit from rising RF content/complexity as the market moves to 5G. We’re lowering our price target from $120 to $110.”
