TriQuint Semiconductor (TQNT) has been initiated today with coverage from the research analysts at UBS. UBS begins this new coverage of TriQuint Semiconductor with an initial price target set at $11 dollars and rates performance of TQNT as “neutral.” UBS noted that TriQuint Semiconductor has managed to assert itself as a leading supplier of RF components for smartphones. Due to TriQuint’s wide-ranging technology and manufacturing expertise, they expect TriQuint to be a leading fixture among RF suppliers in the future.
Praise is not without an ounce of pessimism, however, as UBS also noted that ongoing legal concern with Avago and capacity issues could have TQNT range in the near future.
