Avnet (AVT -9.6%) tumbles to 52-week lows after warning it expects FQ1 (Sep. quarter) revenue of $5.85B and EPS of $0.52-$0.58, below a consensus of $6.06B and $0.83. The company blames the impact of delayed IT projects on its hardware distribution ops, and a "pronounced slowdown" in Americas sales for its chip distribution ops. Given Avenet's bellwether status for chip demand, which is already looking shaky, the warning is likely contributing to early weakness in chip stocks (SOXX -0.9%). Rival Arrow (ARW -6.2%) is also selling off.
