10:06 EDTAAPLCirrus Logic content in iPhone 6S better than expected, says Barclays
Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis says teardowns of Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 6S indicate Cirrus Logic (CRUS) secured both a smart codec and boosted amp win in the new phone. The company's content in each phone is likely towards the upper end of his $3.50-$4.00 estimate, Curtis tells investors in a research note. He views this as better than expected. Curtis thinks the 6S content, coupled with the "several new growth drivers" Cirrus outlined at yesterday's technology day, could reverse the negative sentiment on the stock. He keeps an Overweight rating on the name with a $39 price target. Cirrus is up $3.68 to $30.81 in early trading.
