Expectations for Q3

The Street expectations are for an EPS of $0.52 on revenues of $575.29 million. In a note Thrusday, Betsy Van Hees of Loop Capital said Maxim Integrated could report another quarterly beat, backed by “healthy demand in the automotive, communications & data center, and industrial end markets.”
