Broadcom recently closed its $61 billion acquisition of VMware, and analysts will be looking for clues in the latest earnings report.

AVGO trades at $903.64 and has broken resistance at $921.80. That could be a bearish setup in a week where stocks are lower. 

Broadcom designs and manufactures a wide range of semiconductors and infrastructure software. Apple Inc. is one of its largest customers. While concerns about Apple replacing its chips for an in-house product linger, the company’s VMware acquisition boosted the latter half. 

Broadcom has reorganised VMware into four divisions responsible for a different subset of its products.  

News of VMware’s updated structure came a day after the official closing of its $61 billion acquisition. The initial plan for February was pushed back due to antitrust concerns, and analysts will look for any statements on the coming earnings call. 

Analysts expect the company to report earnings per share of $10.96 on revenues of $9.28 billion for the quarter, a 3.9% improvement. Keybanc said the company’s deal should instantly boost earnings per share and gross margins, as VMware (VMW) is “highly complementary” to products. According to reports, the company is also set to lay off around 1,300 VMware employees in California. 

With this earnings report, analysts will look to gauge VMware’s initial success and any setbacks that could impact the share price. The tech sector has also been weaker in the last few days and may show any upside boost.
