Strong demand for AI-related products boosted semiconductor sales at Broadcom, which said sales for its fiscal first quarter were $11.96 billion, up by 34% year-over-year because it acquired software maker VMware.

Broadcom’s shares were recently down about 7%.

Chief Executive Hock Tan said AI chip sales would bring in over $10 billion this fiscal year and makeup more than a third of the company’s overall semiconductor sales.

The company didn’t give an outlook for the current quarter but reiterated an earlier forecast of around $50 billion of sales in its fiscal year.

JetBlue shares rose 3 % in midday trading, while Spirit tumbled 15%.
