Reduce
Xilinx shares remain overvalued, says Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Romit Shah believes Xilinx continues to under-deliver on operating expenses as the quarter and guidance were higher than expected. He believes consensus is preoccupied with unproven markets such as AI and autonomous driving and are ignoring the lack of momentum in the core business. Shah believes Xilinx shares remain overvalued and reiterates his Reduce rating and $50 price target.

Nvidia price target raised to $180 from $140 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis raised his price target for Nvidia (NVDA) shares to $180 from $140 and his three-year bull case earnings per share estimate to $8.00 from $6.50. The chipmaker closed Friday up $3.28 to $146.76. The company's decade long investment in its proprietary GPU-processing language has resulted in a multi-year competitive advantage that has yet to be fully appreciated by investors, Lipacis tells investors in a research note. He sees Nvidia as a key beneficiary as the industry undergoes a "tectonic shift towards a parallel computing model." The analyst keeps a Buy rating on the shares. Lipacis this morning also downgraded Intel (INTC) to Underperform and upgraded both Cavium (CAVM) and Xilinx (XLNX) to Buy.

Synopsys price target raised to $66 from $60 at Needham
Needham analyst Richard Valera raised his price target for Synopsys to $66 from $60 after the company delivered "strong" Q4 results. While the company's down year over year backlog despite an increase in duration will likely raise some questions, the analyst is inclined to give Synopsys the benefit of the doubt given its strong recent execution track record. He reiterates a Buy rating on the shares, and says he would a buyer on any post-earnings weakness.

He views the company as the fastest growing electronic design automation, or EDA, company, adding that he continues to believe it has faster growth than Cadence Design (CDNS) due to its higher exposure to faster growth intellectual property and software businesses. Ahmad raised his price target on Synopsys to $82 from $73 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Synopsys light implied Q4 guidance factors in some conservatism, says Needham
Needham analyst Richard Valera said that Synopsys' increased FY17 guidance implies "notably light" Q4 guidance. Management attributed this to lumpiness of hardware, but he also suspects the view includes some conservatism. Valera, who thinks the shares could continue to work higher, raised his price target on Synopsys to $77 from $76 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.
