Canaccord Genuity reiterates a 'Buy' on Spreadtrum Communications (NASDAQ: SPRD) price target raised from $19 to $21.

Analyst, T. Michael Walkley, said, "Spreadtrum reported Q1/12 sales of $161.1M, in line with our estimate, and pro forma EPS of $0.57, well above our $0.44 estimate. Further, management guided Q2/12 sales well above our estimates as new 40nm 2.5G solution should ship in volume during Q2/12 and new 1GHz EDGE and TD-SCDMA smartphone solutions will begin shipping in late Q2/12, or one quarter ahead of our expectations. We believe a larger mix of smartphone solutions in H2/12 should drive higher blended chipset ASP, stabilized gross margin, and solid earnings growth."

"We are raising our 2012 pro forma EPS estimate from $2.00 to $2.39 and our
2013 estimate from $2.40 to 2.65."
