    Revenue was above the high end of guidance provided in late January, which called for a range of $196 million to $202 million. On an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis, which excludes items like equity compensation and acquisition costs, net income was $38.3 million, or $0.87 per share — also above guidance for adjusted earnings per share of between $0.73 and $0.79. IoT revenue grew 17% year over year to $103 million. Infrastructure revenue jumped 37% year over year to $49 million. Broadcast revenue declined 3% to $36 million. Access revenue fell 6% to $17 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 18, 2018, Silicon Labs closed its $240 million acquisition of Sigma Designs’ (NASDAQ:SIGM) Z-Wave business. Silicon Labs had initially agreed to acquire all of Sigma Designs this past December for $282 million, but amended the deal last quarter to include only its Z-Wave business after certain closing conditions weren’t met.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The tax bill passed by the House and Senate still hasn’t been signed by President Trump. But one blue chip company, FedEx, is already touting the potential for a nearly $1.5 billion increase in annual profits due to lower corporate taxes.

FedEx reported its latest quarterly results after the closing bell Tuesday, before the Senate voted to approve the bill.

But the shipping giant told investors in its earnings release that its annual profits for fiscal 2018 could increase by $4.40 to $5.50 a share, mainly due to a change in how it values deferred tax liabilities as well as the cut in the corporate tax rate to 21%.

The lower tax rate on its own will lead earnings to be as much as $1 share higher, FedEx said.

FedEx has about 268.2 million total shares outstanding. So a possible $5.50 per share boost from lower taxes would translate to a $1.48 billion bump in annual earnings. Shares of FedEx (FDX) rose more than 3% on the news, hitting an all-time high.
