MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. CEO’s Comments
“We delivered 5 percent sequential growth in our fiscal third quarter, in line with guidance, despite a weakening carrier spending environment in China,” remarked John Croteau, President and CEO of MACOM. “Countering this cyclical weakness, our A&D and multi-market businesses remained solid, and our Data Center business continued to outperform, enabling us to meet guidance.
“Our Networks business overall was up 43.5 percent year-over-year, despite a sequential decline in telecom Optical revenue. PON was down considerably year-over-year and now comprises less than 5 percent of total revenue. Carriers and OEM customers are now squarely focused on deploying 10G PON, which we expect will drive a new wave of investment next year. However, the rapid transition away from 2.5G has created a temporary overhang for our business. Metro/Long-Haul business in China was also weaker than expected in the third quarter, but very strong in other regions.” Business Wire
MTSI Technical Analysis
MTSI opened trading yesterday at $61.43 which was up from the previous day’s trading close of $60.55. MTSI closed trading yesterday at $61.06 and spiked down after market to $48.60, equivalent to a 20% decrease from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see the last time MTSI traded below these levels we have to go back to May 12th when it traded at lows of $48.55.
Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike down MTSI had been in an overall upward trend dating back to May 4th when it traded at $44.72. MTSI has a float of 44.11 million shares and traded 1.34 times the normal daily trading volume on Tuesday.
For trading purposes, I would like to see MTSI open trading on Wednesday below $52.75 and if it does I would be looking to take a short position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.50 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap down.
