Flex could rise 25% in a year, Barron's says

Flex (FLEX) is using robotics, machine learning, three-dimensional printing, and other next-generation technologies to transform itself into an everything factory, able to turn out not just consumer electronics but also medical equipment, sneakers, and car components, Jack Hough writes in this week's edition of Barron's. While the company's business mix is changing, it still has ample exposure to PCs and smartphones, as well as companies like Apple (AAPL) and Lenovo (LNVGY), the report noted, adding that it expects Flex's stock to rise another 25% or more over the coming year.

Buy
Flex weakness a buying opportunity, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich said Flex held a positive analyst meeting with aggressive 2020 financial targets. He said his buy thesis has been predicated on the company's shift toward more value through design innovation and customer diversification, both of which were featured at the meeting. The analyst believes financial consistency will increase over time and should offset some normal bumps in execution. Milunovich recommended using any weakness as a buying opportunity and reiterated his Buy rating while raising his price target to $18 from $17.50 on Flex shares.

Piper expects 'solid' quarter from Apple on August 1
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson expects Apple on August 1 to report a "solid" quarter, but adds the outlook may be slightly below consensus due to the timing of the next iPhone launch. The setup for shares over the coming months appears favorable, Olson tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. The analyst pushed 4M iPhone units from the September to December quarter amid industry chatter suggesting that at least some models will not be available until October, November and December. Olson maintains an Overweight rating on Apple with a $158 price target. The stock in late morning trading is down 62c to $149.72.

Qualcomm customers unlikely to take business to Intel, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri said the June quarter for Qualcomm (QCOM) was okay while the September quarter outlook was bad because Samsung (SSNLF) now is withholding full royalties on top of Apple (AAPL). The analyst said there aren't many more levers these customers can pull short of taking their business to Intel (INTC), but he believes that is unlikely given the performance gap. Arcuri believes the risk/reward is still favorable and maintained his Outperform rating and $70 price target on Qualcomm shares.

Apple capital returns and Services narrative gaining momentum, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri said his supply work on Apple suggests modest upside to the June quarter, but he continues to see risk to September quarter results as OLED units remain absent and are being pushed into Q4. Arcuri maintains his Outperform rating and $160 price target on Apple shares, as he sees the capital returns and Services narrative gaining momentum.

Skyworks $110 price target very supportable by results, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri noted Skyworks (SWKS) reported solid results as the company continued to execute well amid a soft China smartphone market. The analyst believes the timing of an OLED iPhone launch is already factored into the numbers and he believes his $110 price target is very supportable. However, he feels the Apple (AAPL) and supply chain trade is in the late innings. Arcuri maintained his Market Perform rating on Skyworks shares.

Nimble Storage downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um downgraded Nimble Storage (NMBL) to Market Perform following HP Enterprise's (HPE) acquisition announcement. Nimble shares closed at $12.58, above HP's $12.50 bid, suggesting investors believe in the potential for a higher bid, Um tells investors in a research note. The analyst views Lenovo (LNVGY) as most logical bidder, but notes the company's response to media outlet CDN suggests a counterbid is unlikely. Um raised his price target range for Nimble shares to $12-$13 from $10-$11.
