Needham & Company analyst Rajvindra Gill reiterated a Buy rating and lifted his price target on Synaptics (NASDAQ: SYNA) from $65 to $70 following a beat and raise quarter on the top-line.

"Non-GAAP EPS came in below the Street due to the additional OPEX and increased share count associated with Validity; sell-side ests should now appropriately reflect the acquisition," Gill notes. "Fingerprint business is showing signs of substantial momentum & should be accretive ahead of expectations (June qrt vs Sept qrt). We expect smartphones, tablets and commercial notebooks to drive fingerprint adoption. Moreover, SYNA was confident that its core biz could grow 20% Y/Y, and that the acquisition of Validity and other new technologies would be additive to that growth rate."

The firm is increasing FY14/FY15 ests to $839.4MM/$3.50 (vs. $794.3MM/$3.40) and $980.0MM/$4.20 ($910.0MM/$4.00), respectively, which reflects $30MM of Validity revenues in FY14 and $100MM in FY15.
