Samsung Stock Hits Three-Year High With Boost From AI

Published by Slashdot on Sat, 06 Jul 2024


Samsung said it expects a 1,452% profit increase for the second quarter, causing shares to climb 2.24% to a high of 86,500 Korean won ($62.73). CNBC reports: Samsung issued guidance on Friday, saying operating profit for the April to June quarter is projected to be about 10.4 trillion won ($7.54 billion) -- that's a jump of about 1,452% from 670 billion won a year ago. The expected operating profit beat a LSEG estimate of 8.51 trillion won. The firm also said it expects revenue for the second quarter to be between 73 trillion to 75 trillion won, from 60.01 trillion won a year ago. This is in line with the 73.7 trillion won estimated by LSEG analysts. Business for the world's largest memory chip maker rebounded as memory chip prices recovered on AI optimism last year. The South Korean electronics giant saw record losses in 2023 as the industry reeled from a post-Covid slump in demand for memory chips and electronics. Its memory chips are commonly found in a wide range of consumer devices including smartphones and computers. Samsung said in April it expects the second quarter to be driven mostly by demand for generative AI, while mobile demand remains stable. "Samsung announces earnings surprise but mainly the earnings upside is from memory price high. So ironically, Samsung is lagging behind in HBM (high-bandwidth memory) production. So supply to Nvidia -- the qualification -- has been delayed," SK Kim, executive director of Daiwa Capital Markets, told CNBC's "Street Signs Asia" on Friday.Read more of this story at Slashdot.
