Strong Q4 Financial Results

Monolithic Power Systems reported fourth quarter revenue that rose 39.8% to $233 million, beating consensus estimates by $7.25 million, with non-GAAP earnings of $1.31 per share, beating consensus estimates by seven cents. The growth was driven by ongoing execution of the company’s strategy and a broader rebound from COVID-19 disruptions.

Analysts responded favorably to the strong fourth quarter financial results. For example, Loop Capital’s David Williams noted the company’s continued momentum across business lines, particularly in Automotive, along with its share gains and content growth story, which is “unquestionably intact” and accelerating at an “impressive pace”.

The company raised its quarterly dividend by 20% to $0.60 per share, which represents a 0.71% forward yield. The dividend is payable on April 15, 2021, to shareholders on record as of March 31, 2021.
