On this page of Benford's Law Stocks.com we present our study of MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY INC — ticker symbol MCHP. SEC filings have been screened by our Benford's Law software, for quarterly 10Q and annual 10K filings from 8/7/2019 to 5/23/2024 for MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY INC under CIK number 0000827054. For filings made in XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) format, our algorithm extracts all "tagged" numbers presented by the company; for any non-XBRL filings our algorithm uses its own interal set of rules to extract what it believes to be numbers as found throughout the filings. The format found for each filing is presented below together with the results for MCHP, with the percentage of found numbers beginning with each digit (1's, 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's, and 9's) charted against the "normal" range observed throughout our coverage universe, as well as the "normal" range for MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY INC based on the past MCHP filings our system processed in the past.

 • We deducted points (includes the impact of penalty multiplier) upon observing the 6's percentage was above the typical coverage universe range.
 • We deducted points (includes the impact of penalty multiplier) upon observing the 6's percentage was above the company's typical historical range.
 • We deducted points upon observing the 7's percentage was above the typical coverage universe range.
 • We deducted points upon observing the 7's percentage was above the company's typical historical range.

Check our work! We provide our MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY INC Benford's Law analysis for informational purposes only, and our software should be expected to make mistakes and contain errors (nothing you see on this website should be relied upon for any decision-making without first repeating the analysis yourself independently), and so below we present to you all of the numbers our system detected, for the MCHP filing above. This way, you can open the filing on your own and compare what you see below against what you yourself find. This can also be helpful for exploring any columns in particular that caught your eye.

While the above MCHP 10K Filed 5/23/2024 is interesting in isolation, we have found that it is also useful to take a look at older MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY INC filings processed by our Benford's Law Stocks algorithm, to see how the company's filings "typically look" on a Benford's Law analysis. Below we repeat the 10K Filed 5/23/2024 but instead of the chart comparing against the typical company across our coverage universe, below we show the same chart compared against the typical MCHP 10Q and 10K filings that we have processed historically. This is followed by similar charts for each of those historical filings.
