Sigma Designs (SIGM -11.1%) tanks following its FQ2 report. Though results beat estimates, the chipmaker guided on its earnings call for FQ3 revenue of $60M-$64M, well below a $73.5M consensus. Sigma, which is heavily exposed to a weak TV market, says it expects HDTV chip sales to be "relatively flat" Q/Q in Q3, typically its strongest quarter. BWS Financial is downgrading to Hold, arguing Sigma's IPTV processor line (15% of FQ2 sales) is no longer a growth catalyst.
