NXP Semiconductors could be acquired for $124 per share, says SunTrust
After Dow Jones reported that NXP (NXPI) is in talks to be bought by Qualcomm (QCOM) for more than $95 per share, SunTrust analyst William Stein says that, based on recent takeover valuations in the semiconductor space, NXP would be acquired for $124 per share. The analyst says that NXP is worth $104 per share on a standalone basis, and he does not expect the company to sell itself for $95. Stein adds that NXP would improve Qualcomm's efforts in NFC and automotive. He expects NXP's stock to rise whether or not a deal is made, and he keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Qualcomm upgraded on potential NXP Semiconductors acquisition at Mizuho
As previously reported, Mizuho upgraded Qualcomm (QCOM) to Buy from Neutral. The firm's analyst believes a Qualcomm (QCOM) acquisition of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) makes significant strategic and financial sense. Qualcomm dominates automotive telematics and the firm believes the potential acquisition of NXP Semiconductors will give it incockpit market share, powertrain, safety, and an automotive processor portfolio from Freescale that creates the first end-to-end semiconductor auto supplier of the future.

NXP 'cheap' for Qualcomm even after rally, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Rick Schafer says NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) still a "cheap" takeover target for Qualcomm (QCOM) even after rallying 25% over the past two days. An acquisition would be accretive to Qualcomm's earnings "under most scenarios," the analyst tells investors in an intraday research note. He thinks Qualcomm needs to diversify away from handsets and has $31B of offshore cash, the analyst contends. Schafer keeps a Perform rating on Qualcomm.

Digital Turbine estimates, price target reduced at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Brian Alger reduced his estimates for Digital Turbine (APPS) and lowered his price target on the shares to $2.60 from $3, after the company quantified the miss that it had previewed last month. The shortfall was attributed to the slashed digital ad budget of a large advertising customer, Verizon (VZ) choosing to reduce the number of slots per device for much of the March quarter, and to Verizon Samsung S7's (SSNLF) that have yet to have Ignite software included, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Alger reiterates a Buy rating on Digital Turbine's shares, considering the depressed current valuation.

Apple supply chain names to rebound, says Needham
Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill expects a rebound in the Apple (AAPL) supply chain names given its underperformance over the last 25 days and the relatively good quarterly results from Knowles (KN). Among the names, the analyst sees Cirrus Logic (CRUS) increasing its dollar content per unit about 40% for the iPhone 7 cycle, with possible upside of 80%-100% for the iPhone 7S in 2017 with the inclusion of adaptive noise cancellation. Knowles, which generated 25% of sales from Apple and less than 10% of sales from Samsung (SSNLF), posted better-than-expected results and guidance, the analyst tells investors in a research note.

Fitbit faces 'fight of its life,' GoPro Karma delay a problem, says BlueFin
In an update on the wearable space, BlueFin analysts John Donovan and Steve Mullane make the case that Fitbit (FIT) is "in for the fight of its life" given mounting competition that is coming from Samsung (SSNLF), Apple (AAPL), Garmin (GRMN) and Under Armour (UA), adding that the sizable inventory of Alta and Blaze devices that it must deplete in this competitive environment puts Fitbit is in a "precarious position." The analyst add that Apple's watchOS improvements "further paint Fitbit into a corner," but noted that market data suggests consumers are looking for wearables under $200, which is in the "sweet spot" of Fitbit's portfolio. Weighing in on GoPro (GPRO), the analysts wonder if the Hero5 will be compelling enough to make consumers buy another camera and note that its upcoming Karma drone is very late to market and "facing daunting odds."

The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on Synaptics' shares, saying the company will remain one of the leaders in the display markets.
