    An upgrade to Buy from FBR fails to stop Atmel (ATML -3.6%) from selling off after the chipmaker announced the resignation of its CFO and favorably narrowed its Q1 guidance. Analyst Christopher Rollans thinks "the Street underestimates all or a portion" of several catalysts, including touch sensor hub opportunities, Galaxy S IV sales, a "cyclical recovery" in the microcontroller market, higher Windows 8 touchscreen attach rates, and growing XSense sensor demand (previous) in 2H. Rivals Synaptics (SYNA -4.7%) and Cypress (CY -1.8%) are also underperforming.

    A downgrade to Market Perform from FBR is pressuring Atmel (ATML -2.3%) shares. The firm is worried about valuation and soft PC touchscreen controller sales - sales of touch-enabled Windows 8 hardware have underwhelmed thus far, but Microsoft, Intel, and OEMs are committed to growing penetration rates. Rival Cypress (CY +2.4%), which just announced its controllers are used in the 2013 Toyota Avalon, is heading in the opposite direction. Update: FBR is also worried about a transition to cheaper, single-chip, PC touch controller solutions, and Atmel's lack of an in-cell controller.

    Touchscreen controller firms Cypress Semi (CY +5.5%) and Atmel (ATML +1.9%) rally after Needham's Rajvindra Gill upgrades shares to Buy. Cypress is down ~50% since Needham's Jan. '12 downgrade, Gill points out, and the chipmaker will benefit from a restructuring, Chinese phone exposure, a strong e-reader position, and a pickup in telecom equipment SRAM demand. He expects Atmel to benefit from touch notebook demand, improving margins, a possible Samsung Galaxy S IV win, and its xSense touchscreen tech. Rival Synaptics (SYNA +2%) is also up.

    Cypress Semi (CY -2.3%) has turned negative after guiding on its Q4 call for Q1 revenue of $163M-$170M and EPS of $0.00-$0.02, below a consensus of $173.9M and $0.04. Meanwhile, fellow chipmaker Fairchild (FCS +4.8%) is up strongly post-earnings. Though Q4 revenue missed estimates and Q1 guidance for revenue of $330M-$350M is only in-line with a $345.8M consensus, expectations were low going in. Also, Fairchild stated it has a "solidly positive" Q1 book-to-bill thus far.
