You sound surprised about "the truth." Get in the game and stop whining, if you think it's being manipulated use it and short or buy puts for the near term. You state it likes it's fact so play it out and spare us the tears. The technical data indicates a slight pullback, look at P/E vs. industry, one year target (very near it now), rev growth, moving averages, etc., all point to slight pullback barring any big positive news. I know this may sound mean, but your post is worthless to the community.
Well, the logic seems to be that pads are going to take share from notebooks, and syna is not as big in the touchscreen area as atml and cy. That's what the analysts are saying. SYNA still seems to be making free cash flow, but it is aq story across tech now, where folks hooked to notebook (or legacy pc) are losing out to the more mobile space. Look at WDC versus SNDK. INTC versus ARMH. Apple versus MSFT.
I don't think the "legacies" are dead, and they are far cheaper. You just have to look at it in contrarian fashion and an opportunity to accumulate if you think the naysayers are wrong. Every few months YNA gives you an opportunity to make 25% or so in 3-6 months while you wait out the sentiment and it grinds higher again when it once again proves itself.
