  • The decline in market size negatively impacted the performance of its CHP business which saw a decline in revenue relative to our expectations earlier in the quarter. 
  • Despite SMB's revenue performance meeting expectations, Shenzhen's Covid lockdown severely disrupted the supply of components to its factories in March. 
  • KeyBanc saw the preannouncement most negatively impact Broadcom Inc AVGO, Qualcomm Inc QCOMQorvo Inc QRVO, and Skyworks Solutions Inc SWKS, which supply WiFi and RF chips to NTGR.
