10:50 EDTSWKSAnalyst more upbeat on Intel, downgrades Qorvo following trip to Asia
After traveling to Asia, Pacific Crest analyst Michael McConenell was more upbeat on the outlook for Intel (INTC), as well as smartphone chip makers Avago (AVGO) and Skyworks (SWKS). The analyst downgraded another smartphone chip maker, Qorvo (QRVO), to Sector Weight from Overweight, warning that the company's results may miss expectations down the road. BULLISH: Shipments of notebook computers appear set to exceed expectations by 5%-10% this month, after more of the devices seem to have been manufactured in August and September than in previous months, according to McConnell. Meanwhile, cloud customers are sparking a significant rebound in data centers' semiconductor demand, the analyst stated. Moreover, motherboard manufacturers say they are seeing increased demand for their products from desktop PC makers, the analyst stated. All of these trends bode well for Intel, indicated McConnell, who kept a $35 price target and Overweight rating on the shares. Demand for Avago's products appears to have remained healthy, given the company's low exposure to China and the strong demand for Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 6S devices, the analyst stated. Another research firm, Craig-Hallum, recently estimated that Avago generates $6.75 of revenue per iPhone 6S sold, up from the $6.50 it obtained from the previous generation of iPhones. Pacific Crest's McConnell kept a $180 price target and Overweight rating on the shares of Avago. Skyworks should benefit from strong near-term demand trends, driven by a shift to module architectures, McConnell contended. According to the analyst, the company's 2016 outlook is also strong. BEARISH: Analysts' "out-quarter estimates" for Qorvo are too high, as they expect the company to grow 8.4% each quarter, versus only 5.9% for Skyworks, McConnell stated. Qorvo is facing several headwinds, including struggles with a key customer, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi, and its inability to obtain more revenue per each iPhone sold, the analyst stated. These headwinds will probably prevent Qorvo from meeting analysts' expectations, warned McConnell. Additionally, the company will be hurt by the slowdown in the growth of the Chinese smartphone market, predicted the analyst, who cut his rating on the stock to Sector Weight from Overweight. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Intel rose 1.2% to $29.16, Avago dropped 1.7% to $124.56, Skyworks fell 3.6% to $84.58 and Qorvo declined 8.5% to $43.61.
