11:08 EDTBRCM, QCOM, AVGO, SWKSBroadcom rises after plan to explore options for baseband unit
Shares of Broadcom (BRCM), which provides semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, are rising this morning after the company said it will explore strategic alternatives for its cellular baseband business. WHAT'S NEW: Broadcom said it will explore strategic options for its cellular baseband business, including a possible sale or wind-down, and has hired hired JPMorgan (JPM) to assist. A sale or wind-down of the business would reduce expenses by about $700M, and the company said non-GAAP research and development and selling, general and administrative expenses are expected to be reduced by around $600M. Broadcom expects to reinvest about $50M of the savings on an annualized basis into projects in the broadband, infrastructure and connectivity businesses, it noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In conjunction with the announcement, Broadcom updated its second quarter outlook. It still sees Q2 revenue of $2B-$2.1B, against analysts' consensus estimates of $2.05B, and it now expects both GAAP and non-GAAP product gross margin to be at or above the high end of its previously-guided range, driven principally by mix. The company's previous adjusted product gross margin view was for an increase of 75 basis points to 175 basis points. ANALYST REACTION: Sterne Agee thinks the wind down of the Broadcom unit improves the positioning of peer Qualcomm (QCOM) and the firm also expects that rivals Avago (AVGO) and Skyworks (SWKS) will benefit from Broadcom's move. PRICE ACTION: Broadcom is trading up $2.61, or 8.2%, to $34.49 in late-morning trading. Meanwhile, Qualcomm is up modestly to $80.32, Avago is up fractionally to $70.99 and Skyworks is down 0.5% to $43.09.
