The kicker is business prospects are strong, with the company seeing higher demand for its domestic production during the pandemic semiconductor shortages of 2021-22.

Forecasted Semiconductors industry annual growth in earnings
In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit.
