Factors to Note
Garmin’s portfolio strength is likely to have benefited its second-quarter performance.
Expanding wearable portfolio might have aided the performance of the company’s fitness segment in the to-be-reported quarter. Moreover, solid demand for Tacx indoor bike trainers, owing to stay-at-home restriction on account of the ongoing pandemic, is likely to have contributed to the second-quarter performance.
Further, well-performing chartplotters and advanced sonar technology may have benefited the company’s Marine segment in the to-be-reported quarter.
Additionally, robust adventure watches are expected to have contributed to the performance of Garmin’s outdoor segment in the second quarter. However, sluggishness in the outdoor activities due to coronavirus pandemic may get reflected in the segment’s second-quarter results.
Further, strong momentum across ADS-B category and retrofit systems are anticipated to have aided the aviation segment in the to-be-reported quarter. However, softness in OEM category and aviation industry owing to coronavirus-led disruptions might have weighed on the to-be-reported quarter’s performance.
Also, weak momentum across top-performing OEM products and sluggish consumer demand are likely to have hurt the performance of the company’s auto segment in the quarter under review.
Nevertheless, the company’s strong efforts toward boosting its mix of online sales during this pandemic situation are expected to get reflected in the second-quarter results.
