Symantec acquisition of LifeLock 'could make sense,' says RBC Capital
After Bloomberg reported that Symantec (SYMC) could bid for LifeLock (LOCK), RBC Capital analyst Ross MacMillan says he believes that Symantec is still working on integrating Blue Coat, and he notes that it recently launched a product that competes with LifeLock. However, he says that combining the products of Symantec and LifeLock to create improved offerings "could make some sense" and may boost the growth of Symantec's Norton product. The analyst thinks the deal could raise Symantec's fiscal 2019 EPS by 15c-35c. He keeps a $28 price target and an Outperform rating on Symantec.

Buy
LifeLock takeout price undervalues company, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst David Hynes noted the buyout rumor of LifeLock for roughly $2B that works out to about $22-$23 per shares. The analyst feels the price undervalues the company and that it is worth $25-$30 in a takeout. His recommendation however is based on an improving fundamental backdrop and not an M&A outcome. Hynes reiterated his Buy rating and raised his price target to $23 from $21 on LifeLock shares.
