NXP Semiconductors only bid may come from Qualcomm, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Stacy Rasgon says that the "only real bid" for NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) may come from Qualcomm (QCOM). The analyst thinks that Qualcomm's $30B of offshore cash gives it an advantage over other potential competing bidders. Moreover, " differences in size, character, and strategic fit would seem to cap the appeal of" NXP for other potential bidders, Rasgon believes. The analyst keeps a $110 price target and Outperform rating on NXP and a Market Perform rating on Qualcomm.

Qualcomm price target raised to $75 from $70 at Canaccord
Canaccord analyst T. Michael Walkley raised his price target on Qualcomm (QCOM) to $75 from $70 but lowered his MSM shipment estimates for the December and March quarters following the Galaxy Note 7 discontinuation of production. The analyst believes QTL estimates are too conservative and said its roadmap is driving improving Android share and margins, which should continue. Walkley also sees strong accretion if the company acquires NXP Semiconductor (NXPI). Walkley reiterated his Buy rating on Qualcomm shares.

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.
