Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cypress Semiconductor stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cypress reported impressive second quarter results wherein both earnings and revenues have improved year over year on the back of its robust product portfolio. Moreover, strong performing wireless solutions business and improved demand for PSoC products aided the top-line growth of Cypress. Additionally, proper execution of management’s strategy of delivering the complete package of connects, compute and store solutions aided the company’s performance across all the end markets. Further, the company’s strong focus toward delivering embedded solutions to the consumer, automotive and industrial customers drove its quarterly results further and will continue to aid the execution of its growth strategies. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to on a year-to-date basis. However, ongoing consolidation in the semiconductor industry remains a headwind." (8/1/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We reiterate our Buy and $23 PT following another beat and raise qrt. Wireless IoT is on track to grow 16-18% Y/Y as auto increasingly accounts for a larger portion of the business and CY expands its platforms to new products. As we thought, CY raised its NOR flash forecast to grow high-single digits driven by the 4.5G/5G transition and long-term demand for automotive grade NOR flash. Recall that this segment was supposed to decline at a 3-5% CAGR. Gross margin expansion remains on track and we see a higher margin profile in ’19 driven primarily by favorable mix shift. With product cycles like USB-C ramping, new PSoC roll-out and healthy overall demand environment, we think CY will outperform the group in 2H18." (7/27/2018)
