The daunting next quarter is due to several headwinds facing the sector. Many companies are expecting lower demand from their mobile customers due to a shift in inventory management. Higher commodity prices are also adding to input costs for the sector and crimping margins. Visit www.stockcall.com/ to see how companies in this industry have grown over the past years and how they are expected to perform in the future.
Another factor eating into margins is rising manufacturing costs in China as workers there demand higher wages. Chinese non-farm labor costs are forecast to increase 15-20% in 2011 which could hurt companies like Jabil Circuit Inc. which has a medical unit there. Companies will have to figure out how to successfully pass these costs along to their customers in order to protect their margins moving forward.
