Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Broadcom stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Broadcom has put up modest third-quarter fiscal 2018 numbers, with bottom line surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate, but the top line matching the same. Notably, the company provided an encouraging fourth-quarter guidance. Broadcom 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, 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." (9/11/2018)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We believe investors should be taking a second look at AVGO. AVGO has underperformed the SOX but provides an attractive opportunity with a dominant market share, and a significant earnings and FCF machine AVGO reported an upside JulQ with 67.3% non-GAAP and guided to a stronger OctQ. With ~$6B in buybacks remaining, $8B+ of FCF, and a ~3%+ dividend yield, we believe AVGO is well positioned as it trades at <11x our conservative F19E EPS. Adjusting our estimates, reiterating our Buy and $280 PT."" (9/7/2018)
  • 3. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We rate AVGO Buy and reiterate our $340 price target into the January quarter print on March 15th which we expect to be in-line. CFIUS involvement and the political climate in Washington do not bode well for the Qualcomm (QCOM: Neutral) deal but Broadcom wins regardless. Recall management last quarter raised long-term non-GAAP gross margin, operating margin, and FCF targets to 65%, 47.5%, and 40%, up from 60%, 45% and 35% respectively. Broadcom Ltd.
