According to Zacks, “Shares of Tech Data have increased so far in the year, owing to its third straight quarter of earnings beat in first-quarter fiscal 2020. The company’s bottom line also registered double-digit growth year over year, backed by lower costs of products sold and reduced operating expenses. Going ahead, management issued a robust bottom-line view for second-quarter fiscal 2020. Tech Data is working toward being a more flexible and cost-effective organization with the Global Business Optimization Program. The increasing demand for data center systems, cloud and mobility products also bodes well. However, the top line missed the consensus mark and declined year over year due to sluggishness in the Europe region. This led to a dismal fiscal sales projection. Also, intense competition and headwinds related to data security act as deterrents.”
