RF chipmakers Skyworks (SWKS -8.5%), TriQuint (TQNT -4%), and RF Micro (RFMD -12%) dive following downgrades from Raymond James. Also possibly hurting is Qualcomm's (QCOM -0.7%) introduction of a new RF front-end solution that features 3D packaging, covers 2G/3G/4G air interfaces, and includes a chip containing a CMOS (bulk silicon) power amplifier and antenna switch - many rival solutions use more exotic materials. Avago (AVGO -4.2%) and Anadigics (ANAD -5.4%) are also lower.
