Read MoreHide Full Article

Synaptics Incorporated (SYNA - Free Report) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 11% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. The stock picked up sharply from the near-flat trend of $41.63 to $42.85 in the past one month time frame.

The upside was driven by reports of a potential buyout of the company.

The company has seen four negative estimate revisions in the past few months, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also moved lower over the past few months, suggesting there may be trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward, to see if this recent move higher can last.

Synaptics currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.  

A better-ranked stock in the Electronics - Semiconductors industry is Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (MLNX - Free Report) , which currently carries a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.
