Fabrinet (FN) to Report Q4 Earnings: What's in the Cards?

Fabrinet FN is slated to release fourth-quarter fiscal 2022 results on Aug 15.

For the fiscal fourth quarter, revenues are expected in the range of $570-$590 million.

Non-GAAP earnings are anticipated between $1.52 per share and $1.59 per share..

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fiscal fourth quarter revenues is pegged at $581.11 million, suggesting 14.04% growth from the figure reported in the year-ago quarter.

The consensus mark for earnings has been steady at $1.55 per share in the past 30 days, suggesting 18.32% growth from the figure reported in the year-ago quarter.

Fabrinet’s earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters and missed the mark once, delivering an earnings surprise of 4.12%, on average.

Let’s see how things have shaped up for the upcoming announcement.

Factors Likely to Have Impacted Q4 Performance

Fabrinet’s performance in the fiscal fourth quarter is likely to have been impacted by a delay of certain customer programs due to component requalification efforts. This is expected to have affected datacom revenues in particular, as this was the area most adversely impacted by the component requalifications in the fiscal third quarter and is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported period too.

Supply-chain constraints are still persistent globally, due to the Russia-Ukraine war and the lockdown in Shanghai, China. This is expected to have hurt Fabrinet’s top line in the fiscal fourth quarter. FN expects a negative impact of $30-$35 million in the said period due to supply-chain disturbances.

However, FN is expected to have benefited from capacity expansion with the new one million square foot building on the Chonburi campus.

The new building expands the total footprint of the company by approximately 50% to more than three million square feet, which will provide Fabrinet with ample capacity to meet certain backlogs created by rising demand from new and existing customers.

Zacks Names "Single Best Pick to Double"

From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts each have chosen their favorite to skyrocket +100% or more in months to come. From those 5, Director of Research Sheraz Mian hand-picks one to have the most explosive upside of all.

It’s a little-known chemical company that’s up 65% over last year, yet still dirt cheap. With unrelenting demand, soaring 2022 earnings estimates, and $1.5 billion for repurchasing shares, retail investors could jump in at any time.

This company could rival or surpass other recent Zacks’ Stocks Set to Double like Boston Beer Company which shot up +143.0% in little more than 9 months and NVIDIA which boomed +175.9% in one year.
