Infineon Technologies AG (OTCMKTS:IFNNY) was downgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “sell” rating in a research note issued to investors on Monday.

According to Zacks, “Infineon's concerted efforts to streamline its operating cost structure, is proving conducive to the company’s profitability. Currently, the company is focusing on three growth areas, namely, demographic trends, demand for resources, and connectivity & digitalization, to maximize its prospects. Going forward, strong foothold in the automotive and power markets is expected to propel growth. This apart, the Wolfspeed acquisition looks promising for RF power solutions. Meanwhile, estimates have been going down ahead of the company's Q4 earnings release. However, the company operates in a highly competitive environment, which might compel it to reduce prices or increase spending. In addition, persistent weakness in the global smarphone market may prove to be a major deterrent for the company.”
