Wall Street expects that Broadcom’s latest quarterly report card will show improved results.

Financial analysts predict the chipmaker will report Thursday that its fiscal third-quarter earnings and revenue increased from a year earlier.

The U.S. job market is on solid footing, with the national unemployment rate near a 50-year low.

Companies are looking harder for employees, sometimes adding more hours for part-timers and converting contractors to full-time workers.
