Cypress higher in spite of mixed results, light guidance

  • Cypress (CY +1.5%) guided on its Q2 CC (webcast) for Q3 revenue of $185M-$191M and EPS of $0.15-$0.17, largely below a consensus of $197.6M and $0.17.
  • However, in spite of the soft sales outlook and Q2 revenue miss, the chipmaker says it's "on track" to hit its 2014 revenue forecast, due to good industrial/automotive demand.
