What are Wall Street analysts saying about Synaptics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Synaptics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Synaptics is a leader in designing and marketing human interface solutions such as touchpads for notebook computers, capactive touch screen controllers for handsets and biometric fingerprint sensors for mobile devices. " (10/11/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy on SYNA and raise our PT to $58 (vs. $52) on a higher gross margin profile in FY19 and lower tax rate. We expect a favorable mix shift will drive margins higher over time (possibly 40% in the medium-term). IoT will account for a greater % of sales (today its 25%) and the company should benefit from higher ASPs across its portfolio. In the near-term, the TDDI supply constraints limited the upside in the Sept. qrt. We bake in $50MM headwind for FY19. However, the TDDI lead times are around 3-months and we believe SYNA has good visibility into the amount for capacity coming online and we expect a good Dec. qrt." (8/10/2018)
  • 3. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We think Synaptics will have ASP increases for the LCD model with Chip on Film solution at Apple (AAPL: Buy) during the second half of the year, but we are unsure if most of the incremental ASP growth will pass through to the top- line. Revenue may see some growth at 2nd half of CY2018, along with slight gross margin improvement. The TDDI business, among the android market, faces some pricing pressure in the 2nd half of 2018. We con- tinue to maintain our neutral rating on the stock until we have a better idea about whether Apple will keep the LCD model for the 2nd half of 2019. We raise our price target from $36 to $48, based on FY2019 EPS of $4.73. Be- cause of the uncertainty on Apple’s panel strategy, we value the stock at 10x FY2019 PE." (5/13/2018)
