Oppenheimer downgraded Peregrine Semiconductor (NASDAQ: PSMI) from Outperform to Perform following Q4 results.

The firm comments, "PSMI reported 4Q revenue/EPS of $63.0M/$0.19 vs. consensus $62.3M/$0.21. First-quarter guidance of $44.5M (down 30% Q/Q) is starkly below consensus $57.2M. We are incrementally concerned with the increasing competitive threat from SWKS/RFMD. Our checks indicate SWKS won the ASM in iPad Mini. The threat that SWKS proliferates this ASM across 2013 iPhone/iPad refreshes significantly clouds PSMI's visibility and creates uncertainty/volatility in the shares. At the same time, we believe RFMD has bolstered its position in antenna tuning. We believe risk/reward favors stepping aside near term as AAPL dependence (~50% of sales) is reduced and PSMI has time to deliver on its new product roadmap."
