Bullish play in Micron ahead of earnings

Micron upgraded to Buy on sustainable DRAM and NAND at Cleveland Research
As previously reported, Cleveland Research upgraded Micron to Buy from Neutral. Analyst Kevin Rottinghaus said Micron's execution has improved and progress in DRAM and NAND fundamentals over the past 2-3 months is sustainable into 2017. He sees several catalysts over the next 12 months including DRAM demand outpacing bit supply growth for CY17, improved DRAM demand outlook for computing, data center, and mobile, improving execution at 20nm, Micron appearing to be second to market with 3D SSD solutions, and NAND expected to be in tight supply through 2017. Rottinghaus expects additional material positive estimate revisions over the next 6+ months.

Nomura remains a Buyer of Micron, especially on weakness
Nomura analyst Romit Shah believes we are in the early part of a positive earnings revision cycle for Micron. The analyst raised his November earnings estimate to 17c, above consensus of 8c, but below "perceived" consensus of 20c-25c. Shah said DRAM's pricing outlook is the key driver as pricing and mix are improving. The analyst remains a buyer of Micron and reiterates his Buy rating and $23 price target.

Morgan Stanley continues to recommend buying Micron
Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore recommends to continue buying Micron given the strong pricing backdrop and strong DRAM bit growth the last 2 quarters, which should drive an earnings inflection higher. Moore sees upside to Q1 numbers and an upward revision to his FY17 $1.22 estimate as he expects DRAM pricing to remain strong, with NAND a bit more mixed, for the next several quarters. The analyst is not making a trade into tomorrow's report due to lack of transparency into guidance, but recommends buying shares into a strong November quarter and beyond. Moore rates Micron a Buy with a $20 price target on shares.
