Here are highlights from Tuesday’s Analyst Blog:

Smartphones Drive Skyworks Growth

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. ( SWKS) recently announced that several of its front-end solutions are being leveraged by the industry’s leading baseband providers for their smartphone platforms which currently support world's leading mobile broadband standards.

Skyworks continues to weather the turbulent economic conditions well. The company has strategically positioned itself as a diversified company. Skyworks continues to benefit from strong underlying demand in the mobile Internet market driven by market share gains and new product ramps. Skyworks saw a healthy holiday season demand across all categories of mobile Internet devices, including smartphones, e-readers and tablets.

According to Skyworks, several of its newest power amplifiers and front-end modules deliver approximately 50% power added efficiency with a 30% smaller footprint.

In particular, Skyworks’ solutions are compatible with the world’s first fully integrated long-term evolution (:LTE) modem chipset which contains an integrated dual core application processor for smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.

As carriers like Verizon ( VZ) and AT&T ( T) accelerate their LTE plans, Skyworks expects a solid opportunity for growth in the coming years with its broad product portfolio.

CACI Wins TSA Contract

Earning new contracts continues its interminable saga for CACI International Inc. ( CACI) as it announced the receipt of a $20 million five-year contract from the Transportation Security Administration (:TSA). The contract is to provide Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Support Services to the TSA centres.

According to the contract, CACI International would implement and maintain a comprehensive OSH program at the TSA’s headquarters, five regional offices, 450 airports and other field operation centres.

The company has had an ongoing relationship with the TSA in providing its OSH services for over five years now. It is hence, easy to aver that CACI International’s continuing support has proved largely effective to the TSA as it has bolstered safety improvement considerably for the latter.

Very recently, CACI International was awarded a contract worth $41 million from the Department of Defense (DoD) to continue its grand work as lead developer at the Defense Agencies Initiative (:DAI). This would directly cater to ameliorating the financial management program of the DoD.

Needless to say, management is highly ebullient about its spate of successes which seem to have transformed into an endless phenomenon of contract awards. However, the company needs to be wary of its formidable competitors who include big names such as Lionbridge Technologies Inc. ( LIOX).

Our current Zacks Consensus Estimate projects an EPS of $1.42 per share and $5.89 per share in the third fiscal quarter and full fiscal year 2012, respectively.

At present we have a Neutral recommendation on CACI International Inc. The stock currently carries a Zacks #2 Rank, which translates into a short-term rating of Buy.
