Logitech Stocks Slump after Delivering Record Q2 2021 Sales

On Monday, shares of Logitech International slumped after it delivered record sales on its second-quarter 2021 earnings. 

As of writing, the company sank 4.98% or 4.43 points to $84.41 per share. 

Subsequently, it holds a market capitalization of $15.00 billion and shares outstanding of $183.19 million.

In addition, its sales edged up to 4.00% to $1.31 billion, surpassing the market estimate of $1.25 billion. Also, it jumped 82.00% compared to the results in 2019.

Remarkably, Logitech significantly benefited from the shift to remote work, as people purchased more keyboards, mice, and webcams. 

Additionally, players of online games such as League of Legends and Fortnite have been a growth driver. 

However, its GAAP operating income weakened to 44.00% to $179.00 million from $322.00 million in the second quarter of 2021. 

Consequently, its GAAP earnings per share fell 48% to $0.81, compared to $1.56 of the prior year. 

Likewise, its non-GAAP operating income plummeted 40.00% to $211.00 million from $354.00 million a year ago. 

Then, its non-GAAP EPS shed 44.00% to $1.05 from $1.87 in 2020. 

Despite these missed estimates, the company has unchanged its annual outlook for the financial year until March 2022. 

Also, it projected its full-year non-GAAP operating income of $800.00 million to climb to $850.00 million.

Meanwhile, consumer electronics rivals of Logitech mixed in the trading market. 

In particular, Razer Inc. dwindled 2.19% or 0.005 points to $0.23 per share.
