=Lattice Semiconductor (LSCC) reported earnings on Tue 12 Feb 2019 (a/h)



Chipmaker Lattice Semiconductor (LSCC) late Tuesday beat Wall Street's target for sales in the fourth quarter and matched views on earnings. Lattice stock jumped in extended trading.

The Portland, Ore.-based company earned an adjusted 8 cents a share on sales of $96 million in the December quarter. Analysts expected Lattice earnings of 8 cents a share on sales of $95.1 million. In the year-earlier period, Lattice earned 1 cent a share on sales of $95.3 million.

Lattice stock surged 8% higher to 8.80 in after-hours trading on the stock market today. During the regular session, it rose 2.9% to 8.18.

Lattice stock broke out of a cup-with-handle base at a buy point of 7.83 on Jan. 25. It has remained in the buy zone since then.

Focus On Programmable Logic Chips
For the current quarter, Lattice expects revenue of $94 million to $98 million, topping forecasts. It did not give a target for earnings per share.

Wall Street was modeling Lattice earnings of 7 cents a share on sales of $93.7 million in the March quarter. In the year-earlier period, Lattice earned 5 cents a share on sales of $98.6 million.

"Despite uncertainty in the current macroeconomic climate, we are positioned to benefit over the long term from multiple catalysts in our business, including growth in computing, industrial and automotive, and the global 5G buildout," Chief Executive Jim Anderson said in a news release. "We are excited about 2019 as we unlock additional value for the company and its shareholders."

In 2018, Lattice completed a strategic repositioning that focused the company on its profitable programmable logic chip business. It also improved efficiencies across its global operations last year.
