  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Broadcom is a premier designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of semiconductor devices. The company is benefiting from strong demand of its wireless solutions and expanding product portfolio, which makes it well-positioned to address the needs of rapidly growing technologies like IoT and 5G. Strong ties with leading OEMs across multiple target markets will help the company to gain key insights into the requirements of customers. Nonetheless, shares of Broadcom have underperformed the industry in the past one year. The company faces intensifying competition and integration risks due to frequent acquisitions. The company’s leveraged balance sheet and customer concentration continue to be headwinds. " (12/5/2018)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We believe multiple tailwinds into 2019-20 with the CA acquisition mostly behind, AI ASICs, regaining RF share, 5G ramps with wireless/Networking, strong FCF and dividend growth positions AVGO well. AVGO provides an attractive opportunity given a dominant market share, ~$6B in buybacks remaining, $8B+ of ~3%+ dividend yield. Reiterating our Buy and raising PT to $295. The shares trade at a conservative ~ 11x F19E EPS." (10/5/2018)
