What are Wall Street analysts saying about Cypress Semiconductor stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cypress Semiconductor stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cypress reported strong second-quarter results driven by strength in its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth offerings to support growth in the Internet of Things (IoT) market. Also, the company witnessed solid momentum across industrial, automotive and legacy markets. The company has been agreed to be acquired by Infineon Technology. The combined business is expected to be the #1 automotive chip company and the 8th largest semiconductor firm in the world. However, Cypress’ weak demand in the consumer end market, and sluggish Microcontroller and Connectivity Division remain concerns. Further, the ongoing trade tension between the United States and China is an overhang. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year." (7/30/2019)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Cypress today announced the closure of its joint venture with SK Hynix, with full operations to commence immediately. In October 2018, CY announced its decision to partially exit the volatile NAND market by converting its two year take-or-pay contract with SK Hynix into a five year joint venture, with CY owning 40%. CY also wanted to reduce its exposure to the low-margin consumer end market, to which 50% of NAND products are sold. CY expects this deal to be accretive to revenue and gross margins and generate more cash through dividends over the next five years." (4/1/2019)
