Silicon Labs price target lowered to $100 from $125 at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Suji Desilva lowered his price target for Silicon Labs to $100 from $125 ahead of quarterly results to reflect broader semiconductor stock weakness. The analyst believes expectations for diverse sequential growth are appropriate for Q3, and expects healthy growth in Q3 across IoT segments and infrastructure demand. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on the shares.

Silicon Labs price target lowered to $90 from $110 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Cody Acree lowered his price target for Silicon Labs to $90 from $110, while reiterating a Hold rating on the shares. Given the company's size, at just under a $1B run-rate, the analyst believes Silicon Labs has many company specific drivers in IoT, Infrastructure and Automotive that should help insulate it to a degree from the broad macro semi demand slowdown being seen by Texas Instruments (TXN) and likely many other chip companies. However, Acree does not expect Silicon Labs' specific drivers to fully offset the macro caution in OEM build rates and the likelihood that OEMs and distributors will be working to maintain very lean inventories, particularly given that chip industry delivery lead times remain at low levels.

Silicon Labs price target lowered to $100 from $115 at Needham
Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill lowered his price target for Silicon Labs to $100 from $115, while reiterating a Buy rating, after the company posted a "solid" quarter and guide in light of the macroeconomic slowdown, specifically in China. The analyst recommends investors find "safe haven" in secular stories such as IoT, EV, wireless infrastructure and machine learning. Gill expects 20% growth in IoT as U.K. smart metering will re-accelerate shipments in Q1 2019 and smart lighting will rebound.
