STMicroelectronics

"We lower 2013 EPS by 33% to reflect softer than expected Q1 results and an underwhelming strategic review of ST-Ericsson," Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in an April 27 report. "Despite solid STM core/exwireless momentum through 2012, we view break-even prospects for the wireless JV as low. Adding further cash burn & likely increasing funding requirements for ST-Ericsson, we maintain Hold."
