UBS downgraded Cypress Semi (NASDAQ: CY) from Buy to Neutral, price target lowered from $19 to $13.75.

Analyst, Steven Eliscu, said, "Cypress primary model drivers are its: 1) consistency of op margin from SRAM, 2) leadership in touch controllers. However, we are increasingly concerned the macro weakness will negatively impact its SRAM recovery and rebound in touch. As a result, we lower our estimates for memory and touch revenue from 3Q12 as well as longer-term operating margin from 22% (GAAP) to 17% on a diminished view for operating leverage. On these revised assumptions, we lower our price target to $13.75. Given limited upside potential to our price target and macro tail risks that result in a more balanced risk-reward, we downgrade shares."

FY12 EPS estimate cut from $0.37 to $0.29 and FY13 from $0.75 to $0.61.
