13:23 EDTSWKS, SSNLF, CHLSkyworks rises after analyst bullish on RF IC demand
Shares of Skyworks (SWKS) are rising slightly in a down market after research firm JMP Securities reported that demand for a product sold by the company is increasing. Skyworks develops semiconductors used in electronic devices. WHAT'S NEW: After conducting research in Asia, JMP Securities analyst Alex Gauna believes there is increasing demand for radio frequency integrated circuits, or RF ICs. RF ICs, which are sold by Skyworks, are compact electronic circuits that emit signal frequencies and include semiconductors and perform functions in popular devices such as cell phones. After visiting semiconductor company MediaTek, Gauna reported that MediaTek expects to ship 300M smartphone chips this year, up from 220M in 2013. Skyworks should also be boosted by new handsets that China Mobile (CHL) and Samsung (SSNLF) are looking to launch in coming months, added the analyst. He increased his price target on Skyworks to $46 from $40 and reiterated an Outperform rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Skyworks rose 0.41%, to 15c, to $36.89.
