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, "Shares of Broadcom have underperformed the industry in the past one year. The company faces integration risks due to frequent acquisitions. The company’s leveraged balance sheet and customer concentration continue to be headwinds. Further, a significant portion of Broadcom’s revenue comes from a handful of customers. Therefore, loss of any of the top five customers can significantly hurt top-line growth. Lately, estimates of Broadcom have moved south. Adding to the woes, intensifying competition from peers is likely to keep profitability under pressure at least in the near-term. Nonetheless, 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." (6/11/2018)
  • 2. 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.
