05:38 EDTALTRIntel close to buying Altera for up to $54/share, NY Post reports
Intel (INTC) is near a deal to buy rival Altera (ALTR) for about $15B or up to $54 per share, Josh Kosman of the New York Post reports, citing a source close to the situation. Altera reportedly rejected an earlier buyout price from Intel of $54 per share, but that was before it reported disappointing earnings results, Kosman points out. Intel has no interest in competing with Avago (AVGO) to acquire Broadcom (BRCM), a source told the reporter. Shares of Altera are trading up $4.52 to $51.49 in the pre-market. Reference Link

15:00 EDTALTRBroadcom, Avago deal would make strategic sense, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Ruben Roy said he believes a merger deal between Broadcom (BRCM) and Avago (AVGO), as the companies were said by the Wall Street Journal to be discussing, would make strategic sense. Roy said that if average take-out multiples in the semiconductor space over the past several years are used as a guide, Broadcom could be valued near $58 per share in a takeover. He added that he thinks Intel (INTC) could continue to be interested in Broadcom, especially with its reported talks to buy Altera (ALTR) "in limbo." Roy maintains a Neutral rating on Broadcom shares.

11:15 EDTALTRAnalyst says Intel takeover of Altera more likely than not
Citi, in a note to investors today, said that the chances of Altera (ALTR) being acquired by Intel (INTC) were greater than 50%. The note comes after multiple news outlets reported yesterday that the two companies have resumed talks about Intel buying the smaller chip maker. ANALYST REACTION: News reports suggest that the odds of Intel buying Altera seem to have increased, wrote Citi analyst Christopher Danely. A deal is more likely to occur than not, according to the analyst. However, he does not believe that the transaction is a done deal. Moreover, the analyst kept a Neutral rating on Intel shares, saying that he does not anticipate changing his rating even if a takeover is consummated. In its own note on Altera this morning, Pacific Crest said it views the breakdown in Dennard scaling and Dark Silicon as an underappreciated positive for the maker of field-programmable gate arrays. The firm sees fair value for Altera at $55-$60 and still thinks that an acquisition by Intel makes sense strategically. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Altera added 0.5% to $47.16, while Intel fell 1% to $33.06.
