Synopsys: Designer Stock


In Business This Week: CLOSING BELL

SYNOPSYS: DESIGNER STOCK

Most days, the arcana of chip-design software doesn't get much attention. But on Apr. 28, Synopsys squeaked past earnings estimates. Investors took notice: Synopsys stock jumped 15%, to 41. Faster revenue growth and bigger margins "make it an attractive investment opportunity," says Goldman Sachs analyst Laura Conigliaro. The $500 million company's fortunes may be a sign of brighter days for chipmakers. Industry growth may quicken from 8% this year to 18% in 1999, says Dataquest.EDITED BY PAT WECHSLERReturn to top
