Samsung S8 launch positive for STMicroelectronics, others, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Tony Stoss notes that Samsung (SSNLF) Galaxy S8's features were as he had expected, which is positive for STMicroelectronics (STM), Cypress Semiconductor (CY) and Integrated Device Synaptics (IDTI), and largely a non-impact for Synaptics (SYNA). The analyst says Samsung using USB-C for the port should be a benefit for Cypress as it is the likely supplier of USB-C controllers for the phone. Additionally, Samsung has enabled the S8 for wireless fast charging and showcased a fast charge wireless pad, which is likely an ASP increase from previous wireless charging solutions Integrated Device Synaptics was providing. The phone also features a fingerprint sensor on the back that is likely Synaptics, he notes, adding that this should be roughly in-line with previous ASP's of fingerprint sensors that the latter has provided to Samsung.

Synaptics upgraded to Buy at Needham
As previously reported, Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill upgraded Synaptics to Buy from Hold, with a $60 price target, saying his bearish thesis of lower gross margins and OLED market share loss has been played out and is now reflected in the stock. Despite the volatility in the business, Synaptics remains the dominant player in display market, possessing the engineering capability and scale to over time integrate touch, display and fingerprint on the display, and creating considerable barriers to entry, he contended.
