Cavium (CAVM) becomes the latest chipmaker to issue a Q4 warning: the company now expects revenue of $56M-$57M for the quarter, below a $61.6M consensus. Cavium blames weak demand from a variety of market segments, as well as a "hub transition" at a major customer (most likely Cisco). Shares are halted, and will resume trading at 4:30.

  • It's hard to say for sure if this is an isolated case or if this represents a further chip producer slowdown. I side more on the side of an isolated case but I would like more details on how much revenue was lost due to the hub transition.
