    What happened with Silicon Labs this quarter?
    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met. In any case, the purchase significantly expands Silicon Labs’ position in mesh networking for smart homes.

    Stocks to Watch Today: NKE, GRMN, FIT, FOSL, NAVI
    Nike Inc. (NYSE: NYSE) is facing a public relations problem this morning and shares are off nearly 2%. Last night, Duke University star basketball player Zion Williamson was injured in the opening minute of a marquee game against the University of North Carolina. Williamson slipped while dribbling and his Nike shoe split apart, causing him to fall and injure his knee. The No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, who were favorites against their rivals at home, were blown out after Williamson was forced to leave the game. The game was heavily televised, attended by celebrities and former President Barack Obama, and fetched ticket prices upwards of $10,000. Williamson is likely the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft this year. The company called the event an “isolated occurrence.” Shares of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) popped to an 11-year high thanks to a strong earnings report and forward guidance on Wednesday. The fitness and navigation device manufacturer reported that smartwatch sales are “on fire” from outdoor enthusiasts. The firm’s outdoor segment experienced a 25% jump in revenue for the quarter, while the firm hiked its 2019 revenue outlook and topped analysts’ expectations. The news helped boost shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). Shares of Navient Corp. (NASDAQ: NAVI) slid 4.2% after hedge fund Canyon Capital withdrew its bid from earlier this week to buy the student loan servicing giant for $12.50 per share. The hedge fund announced it will now launch a proxy fight to replace many of the company’s board of directors. While this might be bad news for NAVI in the short term, there are still 1.5 trillion reasons to own this stock. Look for other earnings reports from Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU), Barclays PLC (NYSE: BCS), Boyd Gaming (NYSE: BYD), Domino’s Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), Dropbox (NYSE: DBX), First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE), Kraft Hein

    After a couple challenging years, Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has started to mount a turnaround. The company has already returned to profitability. In no uncertain terms, the Versa is driving that progress, positioned as a mainstream smartwatch that can appeal to average consumers. Versa’s predecessor, the Iconic, in contrast, was a flop because it was priced too high and targeted a smaller niche of performance users.
