  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "CAVM beat and raised again, with a full quarter of QLGC and progress in new products (notably Fusion-M and XPliant). We are encouraged by the progress and visibility into product cycles but remain on the sidelines as we believe multiple expansion will be challenging given the B/S leverage, the acquisition of lower-growth QLGC, and high SBC." (2/2/2017)
  • Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "CAVM posted its third consecutive beat and raise quarter with strength across all areas of its business. The core embedded business continues to be strong while new products ramp nicely and the recently acquired QLogic contributes to overall growth. Given the company's recent success and management's upbeat outlook for 2017, we raise our estimates and remain positive on the story and management's ability to execute. We reiterate our Buy rating and raise our price target to $77 from $66 based on our DCF model." (2/2/2017)
  • Pacific Crest analysts commented, "We are increasing our 2017 EPS estimate by $0.73 to $2.60. While we believe Cavium likely has significant opportunities to extract significant cost synergies from QLogic, we remain concerned that this acquisition was likely reactive." (8/17/2016)
