With all the hoopla over tablets and them replacing netbooks, notebooks will be the only place left for synaptics right?
And then with the economy weak and people not spending on anything in general, but when they do have some cash buying tablets instead of notebooks....synaptics is poised to report some really low earnings it seems.
Intel has already reported lower chip sales because of, perhaps, notebooks and netbooks being replaced by tablets, smartphones, and more desktops on the high end.
The reason this stock may be down is that people don't equate synaptics to tablets and smart phones. Synaptics is an interface company, and a very good one. Tablets can only help them, granted their core business of mouse pads in laptops may be hurt, but the growth is, and has been, in user interface on mobile phones and tablets and whatever else wants to start incorporating touch.
Average down and be patient. Synaptics is actually becoming more relevant rather than less.
