Roth Capital Maintains Buy On Spansion, Sees 26% Upside
In a research report issued today, Roth Capital analyst Krishna Shankar maintained a Buy rating on Spansion (NYSE:CODE) with a price target of $25.00, which represents a potential upside of 26% from where the stock is currently trading.
Shankar said, “CODE reported in-line 3Q14 EPS with a revenue shortfall offset by higher gross margins due to a better product mix/ IP licensing revenues and guided to 3% sequential revenue decline. We believe that CODE is seeing good demand for high-end embedded flash memory in industrial, automotive applications offset by weakness in low-end consumer flash and Japan gaming console market. Longer-term, we believe CODE is executing well in embedded flash memory, micro-controllers, analog, and system-on-chip platforms, and expanding globally.”
