According to Zacks Investment Research, "Broadcom reported mixed first-quarter fiscal 2019 results. Wherein the bottom line surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate but the top line missed the same. 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. Nonetheless, 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." (3/19/2019) 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We rate AVGO a Buy and maintain our $350 price target. Solid overall January quarter results and the reiteration of FY19 sales of $24.5 billion demonstrates the company’s superior business model able to withstand industry gyrations and uncertainty. Investors may take pause on declining gross margins for the rest of the year, but we would position as mix related on conservatism on the CA part of the business. Relatively strong semiconductor business trends are being driven by networking data center Tomahawk3 switches (offsetting industry compute and storage inventory issues) and stabilization in wired/broadband. Wireless is viewed as having a strong back half of the year on strong dollar content expansion (FBAR content and reclaiming a lost socket from last year)." (3/15/2019) 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) Has Broadcom been receiving favorable news coverage?
