13:03 EDTRFMD, QCOM, AVGO, SWKSRF Micro Devices advances after analyst upgrades on pullback
RF Micro Devices (RFMD) is climbing after Lazard analyst Ian Ing upgraded the stock to Buy from Neutral in a note to investors earlier today. RF Micro slumped yesterday after Qualcomm (QCOM) announced that it would introduce a cellular radio frequency band fragmentation device called the Qualcomm RF360 Front End Solution. RF Micro markets similar products. Ing, however, wrote that fears about the effects of Qualcomm's new product on RF Micro are likely overdone. Qualcomm's front end product is largely a "proof of concept" solution meant to push other companies to solve band fragmentation issues, rather than a product that could become dominant and threaten RF Micro, the analyst wrote. Qualcomm is unlikely to risk alienating its key partners in the radio frequency space by pursing a product that would increase its operating income by less than 10%, according to the analyst. Ing is upbeat on RF Micro's outlook, and he set a $6 price target on the shares, which climbed 13c, or 3%, to $4.75 in early afternoon trading. Other makers of RF solutions that fell yesterday are also recovering today. Skyworks (SWKS) advanced 3.5% to $22, and Avago (AVGO) added 1.5% to $34.20.

11:41 EDTAVGOAvago technical comments before earnings
The shares have outperformed most indexes in the last three months, trading up over 8%. Price is also very close to the 52-week high and life high at $77.21. On stronger than expected positive news and guidance, the life high would be an easy reach from current levels. Without overhead resistance, a next likely upside target would be at the $80 to $85 area depending on the degree of surprise. If the news is not as bullish as sentiment in the name supposes, there is greater risk of a strong downside risk given the big advance the stock has made. In the year-to-date period price is up over 44.6%. On an increasing scale of disappointment, the following support levels could be tested as downside objectives: $73.15, $69.38, and $67.52. The $70 area has been strong support in the last several months as shares consolidated gains. A breakdown below that level could therefore precipitate further price weakness.

11:17 EDTRFMD, AVGOPeregrine unlikely to receive competing bid, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer believes Peregrine (PSMI) is unlikely to receive a competing takeover bid to Murata's since Murata is Peregrine's largest customer and Avago (AVGO) and Skyworks (SWKS) are looking to diversify away from mobile. Opco thinks Murata may look to divest Peregrine's non-mobile business, and views Skyworks, RF Micro Devices (RFMD), Analog Devices (ADI), and M/A-Com Technology (MTSI) as logical buyers for the business.
