Smart Global stock plunges further post Q3 results

Smart Global Holdings (NASDAQ: SGH) reported an 81% dip in adjusted earnings to 34 cents per share for the third quarter of 2019, due to continued weakness in the Brazil business caused by the worsening pricing environment.  The bottom-line missed the street consensus of 37 cents per share.

The Brazil business, where the company supplies commodity memory products to high volume requirements in smartphones and PCs, was hurt by the worsening pricing environment for such products.
