Silicon Motion (SIMO) -8.8% after posting mixed Q1 results (EPS hurt by a 400 bps Q/Q gross margin drop) and light guidance. SIMO expects Q2 revenue to grow 5%-10% Q/Q, well below a consensus for a 24% increase, thanks to soft 4G transceiver demand. For 2013, it expects non-4G transceiver ops to show 0%-10% growth - the consensus for total revenue is 9.8%. SA contributor Ashraf Eassa, bullish on SIMO due to its valuation, thinks Samsung's yield issues for its Exynos 5 Octa CPU have led it to rely more on Qualcomm's (QCOM) solutions (previous) for the Galaxy S4, which in turn has hurt SIMO's transceiver share.
