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 is currently suffering from intensifying competition in the semiconductor industry. This might put the company under pressure to lower its prices which will hurt its profitability.  Notably, shares of the company have underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. However, Cypress remains optimistic on the proper execution of management’s strategy of delivering the complete package of connect, compute and store solutions. This is expected to aid the company’s performance across all the end markets. Further, the company’s exposure to IoT, automotive, and industrial markets remains positive. Nevertheless, the ongoing trade tensions between the United States and China pose a serious threat to the company’s growth in the near terms." (9/26/2018)
  • 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)
