Skyworks (SWKS) Stock Falls in After-Hours Trading Despite Q4 Beat

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Skyworks Solutions  (SWKS)  stock was declining in after-hours trading on Thursday despite reporting better-than-expected results for the 2016 fourth quarter. 

After the market close, the Woburn, MA-based semiconductor company reported adjusted earnings of $1.47 per share, topping analysts' estimates of $1.43 per share. 

Revenue of $835.4 million beat the FactSet consensus of $831.3 million.

Skyworks expects fiscal 2017 first-quarter adjusted earnings of $1.58 per share and revenue growth between 7% and 9% sequentially. 

Analysts surveyed by FactSet are modeling adjusted earnings of $1.56 per share and revenue of $892.8 million for the quarter.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates the stock as a "buy" with a ratings score of B+.

Skyworks' strengths such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, expanding profit margins and increase in stock price during the past year outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.
