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 benefiting from its solid momentum across the industrial, automotive and enterprise markets. Further, accelerating design wins especially from new products and growing adoption of Cypress’ USB devices are major positives. Additionally, the company’s decision of divesting the NAND business will help it to focus more on the automotive, industrial and IoT markets, which will drive its business growth. Moreover, proper execution of Cypress’ 3.0 strategy, which is focused on delivering embedded solutions for consumer, automotive and industrial customers of all sizes will continue to act as a tailwind. However, softness in the consumer end market and sluggish Microcontroller and Connectivity Division remains a matter of concern for the company. Further, the ongoing trade tension between U.S. and China is an overhang. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year." (3/18/2019)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "At its 2019 Analyst Day, we believe Cypress demonstrated its laser-like focus on IoT and Auto – two markets that represent the fastest growing trends in the semiconductor industry, if not all of technology. By investing in connect (wireline/wireless) and compute (MCU, touch, flash), we believe Cypress is uniquely positioned to capitalize on these growing trends while also establishing a defensible position in these markets. Moreover, we are encouraged that the company has increased its long-term target, specifically raising its gross margin target to >50% (vs. 50%), which demonstrates the underlying mix shift to higher-margin & stickier products. Based on this new model, we could see long-term earnings of $1.50-$1.75, making the stock inexpensive at current valuations." (3/14/2019)
