Jefferies maintains a 'Buy' on Lattice Semiconductor (NASDAQ: LSCC) price target of $7.00 (from $8.50).

Analyst, Sundeep Bajikar, said, "We estimate a larger than expected QoQ decline in higher margin industrial products (~25% of revs) driven by Europe, is offsetting QoQ growth in comm infrastructure (45%), consumer (20%), and computing (10%) in Q2. At EV/S of 0.8x (group avg. ~2.5x) and $2/sh of cash, the stock is cheap. We are incrementally more cautious on LSCC, but believe product cycles and higher gross margins are likely to drive multiple expansion."

Bajikar lowers FY13 EPS estimate from $0.43 to $0.36 and FY14 from $0.59 to $0.52.
