A revenue miss and soft guidance lead Entropic (ENTR -14.9%) to plunge towards its 52-week low. On its earnings call, the set-top/home networking chipmaker guided for Q2 revenue of $70M-$73M and EPS of $0.00, below a consensus of $77.3M and $0.01; management blamed "seasonal softness" in carrier demand and "continued revenue pressure" for its set-top SoC ops as a cable provider works through its digital adapter inventory. Needham has cut shares to Hold. Entropic is seeing intensifying competition from Broadcom (BRCM), which on its Q1 call stated broadband chip sales rose 9% Y/Y, with set-top growth offsetting lower Chinese modem shipments.
