Qualcomm price target raised to $77 from $70 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani raised his price target on Qualcomm (QCOM) to $77 after yesterday's formal rejection of $70 per share offer from Broadcom (AVGO). Daryanani says the rejection is not a surprise, noting that the next likely steps are for Broadcom to present its offer to shareholders and escalate the process to a proxy battle that may yield a higher bid. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating on Qualcomm, saying investors will likely agree to the Broadcom deal at a higher price of "high $70's to low $80's".

Qualcomm holders likely compelled by $80 per share offer, says Nomura
A takeover offer of $80 per share or higher by Broadcom (AVGO) would be perceived as "highly compelling" to Qualcomm's (QCOM) largest shareholders, Nomura Instinet analyst Romit Shah told investors yesterday in a research note. He believes Broadcom "has a lot of leverage" even though Qualcomm expressed no interest in negotiating yesterday when rejecting Broadcom's $70 per share offer. Broadcom is likely to get more aggressive with its bid for Qualcomm, via either the launch of a public exchange offer for all shares or announcing a slate of directors for nomination, Shah contends. The analyst sees more upside in Broadcom than Qualcomm should a deal get consummated. Broadcom can rally 35% to $360 per share while Qualcomm will likely rally 15%-25% to $75-$80 per share in a deal scenario, the analyst estimates.

Qualcomm price target raised to $83 at Canaccord after rejecting Broadcom bid
Canaccord analyst T. Michael Walkley raised his price target on Qualcomm (QCOM) to $83 from $76 after the company's board unanimously rejected a $70 per share unsolicited bid by Broadcom (AVGO). Walkley maintained a Buy rating on Qualcomm shares, saying 1) he has increased confidence the company can resolve its Qualcomm Technology Licensing issues, and 2) he expects Broadcom to raise its bid for Qualcomm.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) was upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital and to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James. 2. Chubb (CB) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Sarah DeWitt saying she believes Chubb will be a "major beneficiary" as investors look to gain exposure to the Property & Casualty Insurance space post the third quarter catastrophe losses. 3. Take-Two (TTWO) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Colin Sebastian citing its faster growth and better operating discipline than he expected and "essentially none" of the Grand Theft Auto usage decay he expected. 4. Hain Celestial (HAIN) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Bernstein. 5. Welltower (HCN) upgraded to Overweight from Equalweight at Capital One.

Qualcomm upgraded to Outperform at RBC Capital on limited downside risks
As previously reported, RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani upgraded Qualcomm (QCOM) to Outperform from Sector Perform and raised his price target to $70 from $55. Daryanani says stock price valuation is attractive at current levels regardless of the Broadcom (AVGO) bid, though he notes that the probability of the initial $70 per share bid being the final price is low, with revised bids reaching high-$70 to low-$80 per share range. If Qualcomm remains independent, the analyst says the roadmap for value creation is still compelling, as the company looks to its NXP Semi (NXPI) deal, resolves Apple (AAPL) disputes, and reduces spending.

Broadcom price target raised to $325 from $281 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst William Stein raised his price target on Broadcom (AVGO) to $325 and kept his Buy rating. Stein cites CEO Hock Tan's strategy with regards to Qualcomm (QCOM) and his track of using M&A to generate earnings growth. The analyst anticipates that Qualcomm will likely reject Broadcom's $70/shr bid, at which point the latter will likely nominate a slate of directors while the former attempts to close its NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) deal as quickly as possible. Stein also says the potential Broadcom-Qualcomm deal could also be a negative for Intel (INTC) and a positive for Cypress Semi (CY) on competitive factors.

Wells Fargo downgrades Qualcomm amid Broadcom offer rally
Wells Fargo analyst David Wong downgraded Qualcomm (QCOM) to Market Perform from Outperform amid the rally in shares following Broadcom's (AVGO) unsolicited takeover offer. The stock is now trading close to the analyst's valuation range. He has a $65 price target for the shares. Going forward Qualcomm will not trade on fundamentals but on developments regarding the acquisition offer, Wong tells investors in a research note. He believes Broadcom's offer price assigns essentially no incremental value to Qualcomm's stock associated with the possible closing of the NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) deal or resolution of outstanding disputes. Standpoint Research today also downgraded Qualcomm.

Broadcom bid for Qualcomm would be impressive 'masterpiece,' says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh notes that the Wall Street Journal reported that Broadcom (AVGO) is contemplating an unsolicited bid to acquire Qualcomm (QCOM) for $70/share. The analyst believes this deal would make sense, as he sees significant cost synergies and the opportunity for Broadcom to leverage its healthy relationship with Apple (AAPL) to mend the current strife between Qualcomm and Apple. Additionally, Vinh thinks this deal would be meaningfully accretive to Broadcom and could drive consolidated EPS of $22.97, which would imply fair value of $350.In his M&A scenario analysis, the analyst is assuming Qualcomm backs out of its bid for NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) and Broadcom looks to divest QTL and closes on its acquisition of Brocade (BRCD). In terms of implications, he views as Positive for Cavium's (CAVM) ThunderX business.
