MBLY Stock: Mobileye Drives Past Q2 Targets

Mobileye Global (MBLY), a maker of technology for advanced driver-assistance systems and self-driving cars, on Thursday beat analyst estimates for the second quarter. It also raised its guidance for earnings for the full year. MBLY stock rose in early trading.


The Jerusalem-based company earned an adjusted 17 cents a share on sales of $454 million in the June quarter. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected earnings of 12 cents a share on sales of $451 million. On a year-over-year basis, Mobileye earnings fell 20% while sales declined 1%.

For the full year, Mobileye increased its forecast for adjusted operating income to a range of $600 million to $631 million. Its prior range was $548 million to $577 million. Mobileye reiterated its sales target range of $2.07 billion to $2.11 billion.

“The business again performed well in Q2,” Chief Executive Amnon Shashua said in a news release. “Operating margin improved as compared to the first quarter of 2023 despite relatively consistent revenue and we’re positioned well for the increased revenue growth in the second half of 2023.”
