Maxim auto worries 'much ado about nothing,' says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Betsy Van Hees attributes the after-hours weakness in Maxim Integrated shares despite the company's strong Q3 report and Q4 guidance to concerns over auto market commentary that may have been misinterpreted. After following up with management, she confirmed they were not making a broad sector call and she views concerns over a flat sequential guide in automotive as "much ado about nothing." Van Hees reiterates her Buy rating and $51 price target on Maxim shares.
