Broadcom Belongs on All Tech Investors' Radar Screens

Communications chipmaker reports staggering quarter once again.


As Broadcom's (BRCM) second-quarter results demonstrated yet again, its dominant position in several emerging communication industries is paying off in a huge way. Broadcom’s sequential revenue growth in the quarter was far better than expected: Its 28% sales growth over the March-ending quarter is staggering given that the firm could be raking in $1 billion in annual sales by the end of the year.

Sequential sales growth has been steadily accelerating for several quarters, largely due to impressive growth in the market for high-speed Internet access equipment, specifically for cable modems and cable set-top boxes. Here, Broadcom is by far the market leader and is showing no signs of conceding share in this rapidly growing industry.
