Earnings Reports:

Micron Technology (MU) 

Micron Technology reported a strong fiscal Q3 performance with revenue, gross margin, and EPS all exceeding guidance, driven by robust price increases and a strong product mix. The company highlighted significant growth in the data center segment due to AI demand, expecting record revenue levels in fiscal 2024. Micron’s technological advancements were underscored by the successful ramp-up of advanced technology nodes and the pilot production of 1 Gamma DRAM. The CHIPS Act grants of $6.1 billion will fuel expansion in leading-edge memory manufacturing, positioning Micron for long-term growth. However, supply constraints in non-HBM products due to the ramp-up of HBM production pose challenges in meeting growing demand.

Rapidly growing AI demand resulted in over 50% sequential revenue growth in the data center segment, with significant growth in high-margin AI-related product categories. This positions Micron well for future growth, especially with the expectation of record data center revenue levels in fiscal 2024 and substantial growth in fiscal 2025.

The multi-year growth opportunity driven by AI across various sectors, including data centers, PCs, smartphones, and automotive, is expected to significantly increase demand for DRAM and NAND. Micron’s strategic positioning and product offerings align well with these trends, indicating potential for substantial growth.

Accenture (ACN)

Accenture reported strong Q3 bookings of $21.1 billion, with significant growth in Gen-AI bookings reaching $2 billion year-to-date, indicating a robust demand for its services.
