Collins Stewart downgraded DTS Inc. (NASDAQ: DTSI) from Buy to Neutral, price target cut from $40 to $30.

Collins analyst says, "We are downgrading DTSI and lowering our PT to $30 as discussions with multiple PC makers, suppliers, and CE OEMs indicate the Blu-ray (BD) market has begun to show indications of secular maturity given 1) PC BD attach rates remain at only 4-5% in 2011 with limited growth prospects moving forward; 2) PC Ultrabooks represent a secular headwind for optical disk drives (ODD); 3) Weak TV demand has impacted the outlook for standalone BD players. While our estimates still project meaningful growth into 2012, we believe the stock will remain range-bound until these end markets begin to show a more meaningful uptrend. As such we view valuations at current levels as balanced."
