- Stifel has hiked its Synaptics (SYNA +4.5%) PT to $67 from $57, and believes the company has won the touch controller slot for Samsung's Galaxy S5 (expected to launch in mid-March).
- Pac Crest reported likewise in November, while arguing Synaptics' Hover touch-free gesture gave it an edge over rivals Atmel and Cypress. Synaptics' controllers found their way into Samsung's Galaxy S4 and Note 3 last year, wins that contributed heavily to its tremendous mobile sales growth.
- After talking with management, Stifel also believes Synaptics can continue racking up mobile design wins going forward. FQ2 results arrive on Jan. 23.
