Rambus shares punished for poor Q1 performance

Technology company Rambus (NASDAQ: RMBS) reported a loss of 8 cents per share in the first quarter of 2019, even as analysts were expecting earnings of 23 cents per share.

Revenue rose 4% to $48.4 million during the quarter but fell shy of the street projection of $99.01 million.

Investors sent the stock down over 13% immediately following the disappointing earnings announcement. The stock has declined 12.6% during the trailing 52-week period. In the year-to-date period, the stock has grown by 45%.

For Q2, the company expects operating costs and expenses between $77 million and $81 million. On an adjusted basis, operating costs and expenses are projected in the range of $69 million to $65 million.

Rambus, which develops chip interface technologies for electronics,  earlier this year acquired memory technology assets of Diablo Technologies, in a move to diversify its portfolio. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Rambus has a 12-month average price target of $12.50, suggesting a 5.7% upside from the last close.
