Jul 21, 2014

Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), a chipmaker that enables smartphones and other mobile devices to connect wirelessly to the Internet, gained over 12% on the week following earnings results that showed a better-than-expected 54% jump in fiscal Q3 profit. Sales for the period rose 35%, also beating forecasts.
Quinn Bolton, an analyst from Needham & Co reiterated a “Buy” rating on the stock, while raising his target to $60 from $50. The analyst sees the company positioned well to benefit from Apple’s coming products, and the growing demand for wireless devices in China.
