Synopsys: Federal appellate court rules in favor of Mentor Graphics

Synopsys (SNPS) announced that a federal appellate court has ruled in favor of Mentor Graphics (MENT) in its appeal of a previous decision in a proceeding in California. In 2012, Synopsys filed an action for patent infringement against Mentor Graphics in federal district court in the Northern District of California. In January of 2015, the court granted Mentor's motion for summary judgment, finding that certain asserted patents were invalid. This ruling addresses Synopsys' appeal of that decision. "The ruling has no impact on our business and does not affect the ongoing Oregon proceeding between the parties," Synopsys said in a statement. "Synopsys sells, ships and supports ZeBu emulation systems worldwide, and is committed to investing in and expanding our emulation business. ZeBu is the fastest-growing emulation system in the industry, reflecting its unmatched performance and scalability."

Synopsys price target raised to $60 from $54 at Needham
Needham analyst Richard Valera raised his price target for Synopsys to $60 from $54 after the company delivered upside top and bottom line results in Q3 and increased its 2016 guidance. The analyst believes Synopsys is gaining share in its hardware business, while also "holding its own" on renewals with its consolidated semi customers. Valera expects the company to continue to perform "solidly" despite the tough macro backdrop. He reiterates a Buy rating on the shares.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on the today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. CSX (CSX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill by analyst Ken Hoexter, who also increased his price target to $28 from $25. He said overall industry volume comps begin to get easier beginning in April and believes CSX's multiple should expand as volume stabilize and coal pressures subside. Hoexter also upgraded Knight Transportation (KNX) and Swift Transport (SWFT) to Buy from Neutral and Werner (WERN) and Genesee & Wyoming (GWR) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform. 2. WellCare (WCG) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Gary Taylor, who raised his price target to $114 from $80. Taylor cited an improved Medicare Advantage outlook following the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' 2017 Advance Notice and said the agency's decision to not explicitly recoup the 2017 HIP Holiday is "quite material" to WellCare. WEllCare was also upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Bofa/Merrill. 3. Cree (CREE) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray by analyst Mike Ritzenthaler after his firm's channel checks with lighting distributors indicated solid volume growth in the order books for 2016. 4. Mentor Graphics (MENT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at DA Davidson as it believes that the company's announcement that it will repurchase 8.1M shares from Carl Icahn, along with what the firm sees as stabilizing industry fundamentals, has improved the stock's risk/reward ratio. 5. IMAX (IMAX) upgraded to Outperform from Netural at Wedbush by analyst Michael Pachter. The valuation is favorable while the company is seeing an improving pace of screen installations and an improving premium film slate in 2016, Pachter said. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Mentor Graphics upgraded on multiple catalysts at DA Davidson
As noted earlier, DA Davidson upgraded Mentor Graphics to Buy from Neutral. Analyst Thomas Diffely says that the company is benefiting from multiple catalysts, including exposure to vertical markets that will enable multi-year growth, solid cash flow, and an activist investor that can help the company unlock value. He thinks that the company can benefit by optimizing its operations, and he finds the stock's valuation attractive. Target to $32 from $24.
