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 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.

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.
