13:43 EDTBRCM, MU, TXN, NVDAAnalyst sees value in semiconductors, upgrades several in space
Shares of several semiconductor companies are rising after their shares were upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform by RBC Capital in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: The stock multiples of semiconductor makers should be higher, RBC Capital argued in a note about the sector. In conjunction with that note, the firm upgraded its ratings on several names in the space, including, Micron (MU), NVIDIA (NVDA), Texas Instruments (TXN), and Broadcom (BRCM). Micron, which develops computer memory products, should benefit from higher gross margins generally and strong prices for DRAM in particular given tight supplies, RBC analyst Doug Freedman wrote. Additionally, Micron could return cash to shareholders, he stated. Freedman raised his price target on the shares to $34 from $27. NVIDIA is likely to benefit as it sells chips for use in higher value markets, such as gaming systems and automobiles, the analyst contended. Moreover, NVIDA's past investments should allow it to control its spending more tightly going forward, resulting in strong cash flows, according to Freedman. The company's current strategies are more likely to enable its free cash flow to grow than its previous strategies, the analyst indicated, hiking his price target on the stock to $26 from $21. Like NVIDIA, Texas Instruments is likely to benefit as it sells chips into more lucrative markets, according to Freedman. In Texas Instruments' case, these markets include communications and industrial sectors, as well as the automotive space, he wrote. Freedman increased his price target on TI's shares to $57 from $49. Finally, Broadcom should benefit from strength in both its core broadband business and its Infrastructure & Networking Group, the analyst believes. Given the outlook for those businesses, the stock is undervalued, he contended. Also likely to boost the company is stronger demand for its mobile and wireless products due to the proliferation of advanced connectivity systems such as LTE, the analyst believes. The analyst raised his price target on Broadcom to $40 from $33.
