Needham Downgrades 7 Semiconductor Stocks, Upgrades 1

Needham became “more cautious” on semiconductor stocks for 2015 and on Monday made several downgrades.

Analyst N. Quinn Bolton noted that following two years of outperformance, the risk-to-reward profile of the industry is now more balanced, which is reflected in the stocks.

Bolton cut ratings on six stocks from Buy to Hold:

Cavium Inc (NASDAQ: CAVM)
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings (NASDAQ: MTSI)
MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE: MXL)
RF Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: RFMD)
Skyworks Solutions Inc (NASDAQ: SWKS)
TriQuint Semiconductor (NASDAQ: TQNT)

Ambarella Inc (NASDAQ: AMBA) was lowered from Hold to Underperform and the stock fell over 5 percent in the pre-market amid the downgrade.

Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI) was the one stock that Bolton upgraded; from Buy to Strong Buy. The stock recently traded at $16.55, up 6.6 percent.
