Cypress Semiconductor (NASDAQ:CY): Needham believes that Cypress’s sell-off is an overreaction to the company’s weaker than expected Q2 outlook, but lowered its price target from $13 to $12. It also recommends buying shares at the current levels.
Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE:AMD): AMD will soon announce that it has acquired Raja Koduri, for a role in the company’s graphics business, though it is unclear what the role may be. Koduri hails from Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), where he served as the company’s graphics chip designer. The hire is just one move that AMD is executing to help reinvigorate the company, as slumping PC demand has taken a toll on the microchip industry.
