Ensuing downgrades of analysts at Pacific Crest, On Semiconductor Corp’s rating from Equal Weight to Underweight, the stock has already fallen over 4.33% in today’s late morning trading sessions. The Semiconductor company’s shares has been deteriorated nearly 20% in the last 12 months based on the broader market selloff and continued weakness in the chip making sector.
The Phoenix-based company’s acquisition of fellow semiconductor maker Fairchild Semiconductor is expected to add 35 cents per share to annual earnings with synergies exceeding the $150 million target, Pacific Crest analysts wrote in a note released this morning.
