The new FAQ clarifies that a Stink Bomb will deal bomb damage to the target it hits. My questions are:

  • Does a Stink Bomb also deal splash damage to the surrounding targets?
  • Can I use Precise Bombs to limit where the Stink Cloud appears?
  • What is the Fortitude save for the created Stink Cloud?

Yes, Stink Bombs inflict "normal bomb damage", which means they still do their splash damage as well. Precise Bombs will limit who takes the splash damage, but the fog cloud / stinking cloud spell still cover their normal area. The Fort save DC is determined as normal,

10 + 1/2 the alchemist's level + the alchemist's Intelligence modifier

per the PFSRD.

    \$\begingroup\$ OK, so throwing a Stink Bomb produces three effects: direct damage to target, splash damage (controlled by precise bombs), and finally the stink cloud that I can't control. Does that sound right? Thank you! \$\endgroup\$ – Lev Apr 19 '15 at 20:01
