Semiconductor manufacturer Broadcom also came out on top during pre-trading, gaining 2%. This came after the company raised its fourth-quarter outlook from $8.7 billion to $8.9 billion. According to CEO and President Hock Tan, this rise comes courtesy of an unwavering demand for broadband, data centers, and wireless technologies.
