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. " (7/7/2018)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "There has been well documented reports on China handset weakness (Digitimes stated that the Chinese smartphone market could experience a -30% Q/Q in C1Q18 after a strong C4Q17 of up 10% Q/Q) as well commentary from companies in our coverage universe (ON is guiding its comm. business down Q/Q in C1Q). Furthermore MediaTek forecasted revenue in 1Q18 to be down 20% Q/Q in part due to softness in the Chinese smartphone market. In light of the expectation that smartphone unit sales will decline significantly in 1Q18, we have revised down our ests of TDDI and DDIC businesses. We remain positive on SYNA post the qrt. as we believe chip-on-film (COF) represents cheaper alternative to OLED displays while in-display fingerprint sensors offer the same form factor benefits (i.e. removal of the bezel) as Face ID but at much lower costs."
