10:38 EDTNXPIMizuho 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).

15:55 EDTPANWCareFirst BlueCross BlueShield confirms cyberattack
CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield has confirmed that cyberattackers gained limited, unauthorized access to a single CareFirst database. This was discovered as a part of the companyís ongoing Information Technology security efforts in the wake of recent cyberattacks on health insurers. CareFirst engaged Mandiant, a unit of FireEye (FEYE), to conduct an end-to-end examination of its IT environment. The review determined that in June 2014 cyberattackers gained access to a single database in which CareFirst stores data that members and other individuals enter to access CareFirstís websites and online services. Approximately 1.1M current and former CareFirst members and individuals who do business with CareFirst online who registered to use CareFirstís websites prior to June 20, 2014 are affected by this event. All affected members will receive a letter from CareFirst offering two free years of credit monitoring and identity theft protection. Mandiant completed its review and found no indication of any other prior or subsequent attack or evidence that other personal information was accessed. Other publicly traded companies in the cybersecurity space include Barracuda Networks (CUDA), Check Point (CHKP), F5 Networks (FFIV), Fortinet (FTNT), Imperva (IMPV), Palo Alto (PANW), Proofpoint (PFPT), Qualys (QLYS) and Symantec (SYMC).

08:13 EDTNXPIJefferies ups view on Semis to Positive from Negative
Jefferies upped its view on the Semiconductors space to Positive from Negative after hosting a dozen companies at its annual conference in Miami. The firm notes that most companies noted an "OK" demand environment, which it views as supporting its thesis that the recent inventory correction and lower capex has created a "great opportunity" to add to Semi positions. After meeting with management, Jefferies has increased conviction that NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) will soon sell its HPRF business and return to its stock buyback program before most expect. It has Buy ratings on AMD (AMD), Microchip (MCHP), NXP and Texas Instruments (TXN).
