Hock Tan, president and CEO of Broadcom, said this about the fiscal Q2 earnings.

“Second quarter results were in-line with our expectations, and saw limited impact from the effects of COVID-19. Looking ahead, our third quarter guidance for semiconductors reflects a surge in demand from cloud, telecom and enterprise customers, offset by supply chain constraints and an expected substantial reset in wireless.”

Broadcom also includes an outlook for fiscal Q3 2020 in its earnings report. The company is expecting revenue of $5.75 billion with a plus or minus of $150 million. That has the midpoint below Wall Street’s revenue estimate of $5.79 billion for the quarter.

AVGO stock was down 1% after-hours Thursday.
