10:38 EDTAAPLMizuho says buy NXP, Micron, ON Semi
Mizuho Securities initiated coverage of a number of chip makers in a note to investors last night. Among its recommendation in the space, NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), Micron (MU), and ON Semiconductor (ON) were called out with Buy ratings. NXP: NXP Semiconductors dominates the mobile payment market with its NFC products, Mizuho analyst Vijay Rakesh wrote. The company's NFC chips are used in Apple's (AAPL) Apple Pay and NXP has a strong mobile payment ecosystem in China, the analyst explained. NXP Semiconductors is also a leader in providing chips used to enhance credit card security, as its Chip+Pin system has a 75% share of the global market and is in the process of being deployed in the U.S, according to Rakesh. Going forward, NXP's growth should be driven by the automotive products of Freescale, which the company acquired earlier this year, the analyst stated, adding that NXP should derive strong synergies and cash flow from the deal. He set a $140 price target on the stock. MICRON: Sales of flash memory device maker Micron's DRAM products should be boosted by a PC rebound in the second half of this year, according to Rakesh. Additionally, the company's new CFO could make its actions more predictable, pleasing investors, the analyst stated. ON: ON Semiconductor should benefit from its acquisition of Aptina, which gave ON a significant presence in the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, or ADAS, market, Rakesh believes. ADAS is likely to grow rapidly around the world, driven by mandates, the analyst predicted. A second positive catalyst for ON will be the proliferation of wireless charging, added the analyst, who set a $16 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, NXP rose nearly 1% to trade nearly $108, Micron gained 2.6% to $27.61, and ON was fractionally higher. Other semiconductor makers initiated with Buy ratings by the firm include Skyworks (SWKS), Synaptics (SYNA), Avago (AVGO) and Cypress Semiconductor (CY).
