Micron’s stock was recently down nearly 4%. It was up 55% in 2023 through Monday’s close, on pace for its best year since 2019.

The company is forecasting revenue of about $4.7 billion for the fiscal quarter, which ends Nov. 30. That is up from its previous revenue guidance of $4.2 billion to $4.6 billion.

Micron said the quarter benefited from a better balance of supply and demand that led to a better pricing environment.

Micron is now forecasting quarterly operating expenses of about $1.1 billion, up from its prior forecast of about $1.01 billion.

Micron is targeting an adjusted loss of about $1 a share, compared with a prior forecast of $1 a share to $1.14 a share.
