Craig Hallum analyst Christian Schwab commented on reports that Marvell (MRVL) is close to hiring Goldman Sachs after rebuffing China bids. Excluding Qualcomm (QCOM) after its purchase of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) and Lenovo and HiSilicon as Chinese buyers, Schwab said this leaves Skyworks (SWKS) and Texas Instruments (TXN) on his list as logical buyers of Marvell. He believes shares could fetch north of $20 in a takeout, above his $17.50 price target. The analyst has a Buy rating on Marvell shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Carnival (CCL) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley by analyst Jamie Rollo after the firm's checks indicated cruise demand weakened and prices were soft in August. The analyst lowered Carnival's price target to $48 from $54. 2. lululemon (LULU) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight by Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger following the company's earnings report. She noted that the company's comps are decelerating and that traffic remains a headwind. Given the slowdown seen in Q2, Greenberger lowered her comp assumptions and cut her price target on lululemon shares to $70 from $74. 3. Morgan Stanley analyst Meta Marshall downgraded Ciena (CIEN) to Equal Weight from Overweight, saying that while the company can likely outgrow the market over the next couple of years, its industry remains intensely competitive and growth is slowing in the long haul market, leaving little room for multiple expansion. Marshall maintains a $23 price target on Ciena shares. 4. Smith & Wesson (SWHC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Craig-Hallum by analyst Steven Dyer, as he thinks the current environment is "as good as it gets" for firearms demand. Based on past cycles, Dyer contends that November's election and activity right after that will likely mark the top of the current firearms cycle and the stock will react as comps become more difficult. 5. STMicroelectronics (STM) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill, with the firm saying structural pressures will drive declining revenue from Q3 of 2017 and beyond.

ARM Holdings can see positive impact from sterling move, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan's European Technology analyst Sandeep Deshpande said the main impacts of the Brexit vote are currency impacts, possible tariffs and economic impacts, but noted that economic impacts are still hard to call at this point and that tariffs are likely to be less important for tech companies. Among the European tech companies he discusses, Deshpande noted that ARM Holdings (ARMH) will see a positive 1.5% impact to EPS for every 1% move in sterling. The analyst added that he does not expect ASML (ASML) to see any reportable impact from currency shifts and called out STMicroelectronics (STM) as having the greatest currency exposure among semiconductor names.
