Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Internet infrastructure semiconductor solutions provider, PMC-Sierra’s first-quarter earnings exceeded the Zacks Consensus Estimate by a penny. Management provided a weak second-quarter guidance. While improvement in the carrier market segment as well as introduction of several major new products were quite encouraging, softness in the Storage and mobile segments remains a matter of concern. We also believe that lack of visibility and macro uncertainty could keep the share price range bound. We are therefore reiterating our Neutral rating on the company’s shares.”
