What are Wall Street analysts saying about Broadcom stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Broadcom stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Broadcom reported mixed second-quarter results, wherein the bottom line surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate, but the top line missed the same. Notably, revenues increased on a year over year basis. 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. Further, Broadcom is a leading player in the semiconductor market based on its multiple target markets, accretive acquisitions and strong cash flow. However, the company lowered its fiscal 2019 revenues outlook. Further, intensifying competition, integration risks and leveraged balance sheet adds to the woes." (6/18/2019)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We see Huawei as already built in to the current share price for AVGO and reiterate our Buy rating and $350 PT into the print (Thursday, June 13 th ) on the company’s secular semiconductor prospect and FCF generation." (6/10/2019)
  • 3. 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)
