10:52 EDTAMDAnalysts say Micron could be sold, but not at price Tsinghua said to offer
Research firms have reacted to a Wall Street Journal report, published last night, that Chinese chip maker Tsinghua had offered to acquire Micron (MU) for $23B, or $21 per share. Summit Research said that Tsinghua would probably raise its bid, while JMP Securities wrote that the deal would be logical from Tsinghua's perspective. However, Piper Jaffray contended that the reported buyout offer is illogical and Cowen agreed, saying that the deal makes no sense for shareholders. ANALYST REACTION: Tsinghua may have indicated that it was making the "low ball" offer in order to gauge the reaction of Micron's management and shareholders to it, Summit Research analyst Srini Sundarararjan contended in a note to investors. Tsinghua will probably increase its bid, the analyst predicted, adding that he expects Micron's stock to reach $21 soon. Sundarararjan kept a $34 price target and Buy rating on Micron. JMP Securities analyst Alex Gauna wrote that the deal would be logical for Tsinghua, as it would allow the Chinese company to access leading edge process technology, enable it to deliver more complete system solutions, and give it access to 3D NAND technology. The analyst, who believes that other Chinese companies may make competing bids for Micron, finds it difficult to believe that Micron would accept an offer more than 5%-10% below its 52-week high of $36.50. Piper Jaffray analyst Ruben Roy countered that the deal makes sense for Tsinghua and China, but not for Micron. If a takeover of Micron was based on the average valuation that companies in Micron's sector have received in takeover deals over the last 18 months, it would fetch a takeover price of $43 per share, Roy estimated. Micron and Tsinghua are more likely to reach an intellectual property sharing deal than complete a takeover transaction, according to Roy, who kept an Overweight rating on Micron. Similarly, Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri wrote that the $21 per share price wouldn't make sense for Micron's shareholders, since it's barely above the estimated replacement cost of the company's capacity. The analyst indicated that he does not believe that Tsinghua would actually make the deal and he thinks that the U.S. Department of Justice would not approve the deal if it does get offered. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a separate note, Summit's Sundarararjan, noting that Intel (INTC) has a 20% stake in Tsinghua. contended that the U.S. chip giant probably "midwifed" Tsinghua's offer for Micron. The analyst says that Intel "carries a lot of weight" with the U.S. Department of Justice and he believes that the DOJ could approve the deal. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Micron jumped 11% to $19.60. Several other semi chip related stocks were also rising, with SanDisk (SNDK) gaining 4%, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) advancing 3% and Atmel (ATML) adding 2%.
