Skyworks Solutions, Inc.

NASD: SWKS - Semiconductors 69.4
While Not Entirely Negative, Growth Indicators Show Several Signs of
Growth B- Weakness
Skyworks Solutions, traditionally healthy sales growth appears to have
Market Growth LT B+
virtually ground to a halt during its most recent quarter, in which it booked
$751.70 million in total revenue. This represents a decline of 7.20%
Market Growth ST Frelative to the year earlier revenue of $810.00 million for the comparable
EPS Growth quarter. This drop contrasts to the 92.06% increase in the company's 12-
month trailing revenue over a three year period. Skyworks Solutions, had
Growth Potential Fa total of $3.33 billion in 12-month trailing revenue up to--and including--
its latest quarter compared to the $1.74 billion it reported for the Revenue Qtrly. 06/30/2016 $752M

company's past performance and stable business, might also be affecting Revenue 12 Mo. Tr. Latest $3.3B
its competitors. It also reported a yearly drop in profit during the last quarter from the year earlier period, a sudden Revenue 12 Mo. Tr. 3Y Ago $1.7B
reversal from the strong profit growth the company has been posting on a long term basis. MarketGrader Revenue 12 Mo. Tr. 3Y Chg. 92.06%
measures long term profit growth by comparing the latest full year profit (12-month trailing) to the equivalent
period's results three years earlier. Skyworks Solutions,'s Second quarter net fell 10.80% to $185.00 million from
the year earlier profit of $207.40 million (excluding extraordinary items) , which contrasts with its growth in 12-
month trailing profit over a three year period. Also including last quarter's results, the company's profit grew to
$977.60 million for the 12 months ended June 30, 2016, a 282.63% jump from full year profit of $255.50 million
reported for the period ended three years earlier. The company's margins, including cash flow, operating and net
margins, grew by an average 16.44% in the latest quarter relative to the year earlier period, a significant increase;
however this is a slower growth rate compared to the two previous quarters.
The company's positive earnings surprise on July 22, 2016, 2.48% above the consensus view, failed to excite
investors as the stock fell 8.43% following the announcement, suggesting the report offered poor guidance for
future quarters. In light of this reaction to a positive earnings surprise it's important to consider how this latest
release affected the company's overall grade beyond earnings per share considering its earnings surprise record Net Income Qtrly. 06/30/2016 $185M
is still positive; over the last six quarters it has reported earnings that have been, on average, 1.84% higher than Net Income Qtrly. Year Ago $207M

Company's Shares Are Attractively Priced Considering the Strength

Shares of Skyworks Solutions, are trading currently at 12.93 times 12-

month earnings. This P/E ratio represents a 65.18% discount to the
MarketGrader-calculated "optimum" P/E ratio of 37.14, which is based on

the company's two-year EPS growth rate. According to this calculation,

Skyworks Solutions,'s earnings per share have grown at an impressive

annualized rate of 35.64% in the last five years. The combination of such

Price/Sales Ratio B-

Profitability grade. This combination offers a strong case for future gains Forward P/E Ratio 12.93
S&P 500 Forward P/E Ratio 15.20
in the stock price. The stock also trades at 12.93 times forward earnings estimates for the next four quarters,
lower than its trailing P/E and the S&P 500 index's forward P/E of 15.20. By placing a lower multiple on the Price to (Tangible) Book Ratio 8.73
company's future earnings than it does on the market as a whole, investors may see the company as financially Price-to-Cash Flow Ratio 16.70
strong but with relatively poor growth prospects. This may offer a valuable opportunity for patient investors willing Price/Sales Ratio 4.28
to wait for future earnings reports.
Skyworks Solutions,'s current share price seems inexpensive compared to its book value, trading at a 4.15 price
to book ratio. However, when intangible assets such as goodwill, which account for a full 52.48% of the
company's total shareholders' equity, are subtracted from its total assets, the stock's price to book ratio increases
quite significantly to 8.73, a richer multiple. Its shares seem reasonably priced at 16.70 times the $4.56 in cash
flow per share generated by the company over the last twelve months, if only because its overall fundamentals
are pretty healthy. Its price to sales ratio of 4.28 is slightly higher than the Semiconductors's average of 3.39,
both based on trailing 12-month sales. Our final value indicator looks at the relationship between the company's
current market capitalization and its operating profits after deducting taxes. According to this indicator Skyworks
Solutions,'s $14.26 billion valuation is reasonable at 11.71 times its most recent quarterly net income plus
depreciation. ©2010. Corp. All Rights Reserved. 2

Skyworks Solutions, Inc.

Profitability Record Is Excellent Across the Board Suggesting a Very

Skyworks Solutions, is a very profitable company with strong overall

indicators in this section of our analysis. The company's different
measures of return to shareholders and margins are typically above those

of its peers. In the last four quarters Skyworks Solutions, earned a profit
Operating Margins of $977.60 million, equivalent to 29.32% of its sales in the period. The
Semiconductors industry had an average operating margin of 12.96% in
Relative Margins A+
the period. The company's operating margin of 33.89% exceeded that
average by 148.67%. Skyworks Solutions,'s return on equity--an
Return on Equity A-
important measure used by MarketGrader to gauge management
efficiency--is very strong, at 27.82% based on how much the company
Quality of Revenues A+
has earned in the last year. This represents an improvement from the
year-earlier 24.46% return on equity, a very healthy sign of profitable growth.
Given such strong returns the company's capital structure seems to conservative, especially assuming it could
raise debt capital to invest into what is a steady and profitable business. Skyworks Solutions, has no debt at all.
Skyworks Solutions,'s core earnings in the last twelve months grew moderately from the twelve months ended a
year earlier. The company's EBITDA for the most recent period was $1.36 billion, or 22.90% above the $1.11
billion earned from its core operations in the prior period. EBITDA is used by MarketGrader to measure the
company's true earnings power since it includes interest expenses, income taxes, depreciation and amortization,
all non-operating expenses, which are nevertheless accounted for in other parts of our analysis that look at EPS
gains and net income.

Company's Cash Flow Indicators Are Solid Across the Board but
Cash Flow A- Offer Some Room for Improvement
Skyworks Solutions,' cash flow fell considerably during the latest quarter

after the same quarter last year. This marks an accelerating decline from

company's return to shareholders after accounting for its costs of capital as well as its operating costs, Skyworks
Solutions,'s results were very solid last year. The company had $3.51 billion in total invested capital as of its most Cash Flow 12 Mo. Tr. 3Y Ago $393M

tax cost of equity in the last year was 15.18%, which should be seen as the opportunity cost of investing in
Skyworks Solutions,'s shares. After deducting this cost from its return on investment the result is 16.98% in
