Broadcom completes acquisition of Brocade

Broadcom (AVGO) announced that it has completed its acquisition of Brocad (BRCD). Brocade's common stock will now cease to be traded on NASDAQ. Brocade will operate as an indirect subsidiary of Broadcom and will be led by Jack Rondoni as General Manager.

Rondoni brings over 20 years of experience in storage, networking and technology.

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.

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 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.

JPMorgan sees at least 50% dividend raise coming from Broadcom
JPMorgan analyst Harlan Sur says Broadcom's (AVGO) U.S. domiciliation process will occur with or without tax reform, which should pave the way for the Brocade (BRCD) deal to close in two weeks. Assuming a worst case of no tax reform, the analyst estimates the company's earnings power including the contribution from Brocade will be $18.00-$18.50 in 2018. Assigning a Semiconductor group price-to-earnings multiple would drive fair value for Broadcom to around $310 to $315 per share, Sur tells investors in a research note. Further, citing strong near-term demand trends, the analyst remains confident management raising the annual dividend by at least 50% to $6.00 in early December. He keeps an Overweight rating on Broadcom shares with a $315 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 21c to $259.50 after announcing its move back to the U.S.

Broadcom U.S. move could remove Brocade overhang, says BofA/Merrill
BofA Merrill Lynch estimates moving its domicile to the U.S. could raise Broadcom's (AVGO) tax rates from 4%-5% to about 12%, but the firm thinks this could be offset by potential Brocade (BRCD) synergies. The firm keeps a Buy rating on Broadcom, arguing that the reasons to own the stock - namely its premium assets, best-in-class management, and dividend potential - remain intact. The firm adds that being in the U.S. could be a precondition to acquiring Brocade and may enable Broadcom to pursue future M&A.

Outperform
Oppenheimer remains a buyer of Broadcom ahead of results
Oppenheimer analyst Rick Schafer notes Broadcom (AVGO) reports Q3 results Thursday and sees upside to consensus revenue/EPS estimates. Furthermore, the analyst sees near-term momentum driven by the company's wired segment as Jericho/Tomahawk routing/switching products ramp, supporting cloud/DC demand and a continued shift to merchant silicon. Schafer expects the Brocade (BRCD) acquisition to be about $1-plus accretive, yet small enough for continued capital return growth and/or additional M&A. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $275 price target on Broadcom's shares.
