UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on International Rectifier (NYSE: IRF) price target of $20.00 (from $22.00).

Analyst, Steven Chin, said, "We are reducing our International Rectifier forecasts on expected soft consumer and industrial demand due to macro, and weaker aerospace sales owing to slower aircraft deliveries. Given the softer end demand, we expect channel and internal inventory levels will take several quarters to completely normalize, and gross margins to begin recovering thereafter. We reduce our F13/14 EPS estimates by 10%/9% off of lowered revenue assumptions and lower our price target."

Q4 revenues cut from $264M to $260M, Q4 EPS remains (0.19) vs. consensus for (0.15). Q1'13 revenues lowered to $271M. FY13 and FY14 revenues lowered by 3% each to $1.11B and $1.22B. FY13/14 EPS are cut by 10%/9% to $0.56/1.54, respectively.
