NXP Semiconductors, Qualcomm making progress toward deal, Bloomberg says

Qualcomm (QCOM) is the only company in discussions to buy NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) and is making progress towards a deal with the Dutch company on a fair price, Bloomberg reports, citing people with knowledge of the matter. There is presently a valuation gap of below 10% between the two parties as they go over the possible deal, the report says. Qualcomm is weighing a deal structure of 75% cash and 25% stock, while NXP would prefer an all-cash deal, the report says. Qualcomm is still weighing its options and talks with NXP are in preliminary stages, the report notes. NXP is pushing for a price of roughly $120 per share, while Qualcomm is aiming for a price closer to $110 per share, the report notes. Both parties are closing that gap, indicating that they are interested in reaching a deal, the report says. Qualcomm rose 1.56% to $67.88 and 1.99% is up 1.99% to $104.54 after the news.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded on potential NXP Semiconductors acquisition at Mizuho with the firm's analyst saying he believes a Qualcomm acquisition of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) makes significant strategic and financial sense. 2. Skechers (SKX) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna. 3. Sprouts Farmers Markets (SFM) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Christopher Mandeville saying the risk/reward is now favorable following the recent pullback in the shares. 4. Phillips 66 (PSX) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman with analyst Neil Mehta citing higher multiple assumptions for midstream and chemicals segments, reduced capex spending and higher free cash flow estimates, and more achievable consensus expectations. 5. NetApp (NTAP) upgraded to Buy from Sell at Summit Redstone with analyst Srini Nandury citing optimism that the company can grow its product revenue from current levels driven by AFA sales and increasing adoption of clustered ONTAP. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

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.

Qualcomm acquisition of NXP Semiconductors would be positive, says UBS
UBS analyst Stephen Chin said he would view an acquisition of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) by Qualcomm (QCOM) as positive citing such a deals likely accretion, as well as benefits like sales diversification, its patent portfolio and cash flow generation. Chin maintains his Neutral rating and $59 price target on Qualcomm shares.

Sector Perform
RBC says $120-130/share seems like high end of reasonable Qualcomm price for NXP
RBC analyst Amit Daryanani believes $120-$130 per share is likely the "upper end of the valuation framework" that Qualcomm (QCOM) would like to pay in any potential deal to acquire NXP Semiconductors (NXPI). While Qualcomm "can certainly elect to pay a larger premium" than that, doing so would likely come in the form of Qualcomm equity issuance, which would impede the accretion from the deal, Daryanani tells investors. The analyst keeps a Sector Perform rating on Qualcomm shares, but raised his price target on the stock to $70 from $59 citing the potential for diversification and higher cash flow generation that an NXP deal would provide.

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.
