Cirrus Logic downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc

KeyBanc analyst John Vinh downgraded Cirrus Logic (CRUS) to Sector Weight citing his "disappointment" with the current iPhone cycle and the lack of meaningful content gains until 2019. While iPhone X supply has improved meaningfully and remains very lean, feedback indicates sell-through has been somewhat disappointing, Vinh tells investors in a research note following his monthly surveys. The analyst recommends investors continue to own Apple (AAPL), Broadcom (AVGO) and Skyworks (SWKS).

Customers waiting for Apple iPhone X with facial recognition, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Tony Stoss notes Apple (AAPL) suppliers sold off yesterday as order shipment dates for the iPhone 8/8 Plus remain relatively short for a new iPhone launch. The analyst thinks customers are waiting for the iPhone X with facial recognition. Stoss reiterates a Buy rating for Skyworks (SWKS), Broadcom (AVGO), Qorvo (QRVO), STMicroelectronics (STM), Cypress Semiconductor (CY), Knowles (KN) a Buy, and a Hold for Cirrus Logic (CRUS) and Synaptics (SYNA).

Apple supply chain to remain range-bound, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh says that because of supply constraints associated with the iPhone X, he anticipates Apple (AAPL) supply chain stocks will likely remain range-bound in the near term, given constraints make upside to estimates less likely, and constraints make it hard to assess true demand for the iPhone X. Additionally, his latest carrier survey indicates relatively lean iPhone 8 inventories despite muted demand and slightly higher demand for the iPhone 7. The analyst recommends investors continue to own Broadcom (AVGO), Cirrus Logic (CRUS), and Skyworks (SWKS).

Carrier surveys indicate strong demand, tight supply for iPhone X, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh says surveys at U.S. carriers on the iPhone X launch day and throughout the weekend indicate healthy initial response to Apple's (AAPL) new flagship model. Further, his surveys indicate most of the stores were sold out within a few hours after opening despite limited promotional activity. Supply was scarce as most T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S) stores indicated that they had not received any iPhone X shipments, and several AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) stores estimated they will need to wait until December before receiving additional shipments, he contends. Vihn's favorite Apple-related suppliers are Broadcom (AVGO), Cirrus Logic (CRUS), Cypress Semiconductor (CY), and Skyworks (SWKS).

Roku downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Mark May downgraded Roku (ROKU) to Sell while raising his price target for the shares to $28 from $27. The shares closed yesterday down 8% to $51.24 after Morgan Stanley downgraded the name to Underweight. The stock is up 266% from its initial public offering price of $14 just three months ago, May tells investors in a research note. The analyst is positive on the long-term growth of the over-the-top video market and on Roku's growth outlook, but believes the current valuation is more than reflecting that outlook. Potential catalysts for a share selloff include the lockup expiration in March, earnings results that don't rise to bullish expectations, and increased competition from the likes of Google (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN) or Apple (AAPL), May contends.

Apple survey points to improved demand since iPhone X launch, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich talked about the rumor of Apple supply chain cuts, but said according to the UBS Lab analysis that iPhone demand appears to have improved post the iPhone X launch. The analyst said this provides confidence in his estimates and could mean upside to average sale prices given the higher implied mix for the iPhone X. Milunovich reiterated his Buy rating and $190 price target on Apple shares.

Fitbit invests $6M in glucose tracking startup Sano, CNBC reports
Fitbit (FIT) has invested $6M in startup company Sano, which makes a coin-sized patch for tracking blood sugar, as the wearable device company looks to expand into health solutions, CNBC reports, citing CEO James Park. The move comes as Apple (AAPL), which makes the Fitbit competitor Apple Watch, has a research team developing a noninvasive glucose reader. Reference Link

Apple estimates at limited risk after cautious iPhone report, says B. Riley FBR
B. Riley FBR analyst Craig Ellis noted the recent "divergent" reports on iPhone X demand from two Asian sources, namely Digitimes and Taiwan's Economic Daily News, pointing out that Digitimes seemed to imply a positive take about iPhone X forecasts while EDN discussed a post-holiday order cut made by the company to iPhone suppliers. Ellis said he would be opportunistic in adding to positions in some of the Apple supplier stocks being impacted by the EDN report, as he believes fundamentals continue to track toward consensus expectations, with upside possible. Ellis lists Broadcom (AVGO), Skyworks (SWKS), Applied Materials (AMAT) and Lam Research (LRCX) as among the Apple suppliers and semi equipment suppliers on which the firm maintains Buy ratings.

Kumar says the company has "significant room to run in its turnaround", adding that its storage business will be a significant driver of growth. The analyst also contends that customers will seek an alternative in the Ethernet market and would welcome Marvell products to hedge those of Broadcom (AVGO).

Xperi shares have room to rally further, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Richard Shannon believes Xperi's (XPER) settlement with Broadcom (AVGO) is "strong confirmation" of the company's process and intellectual property. Licensing Broadcom will drive other customers to license rather than litigate, Shannon tells investors in an intraday research note. He believes the upfront payment for Q4, which was not disclosed, is around $30M and that ongoing payments are likely extend around four years. Shannon sees a "multiplier effect" from the settlement and believes shares of Xperi have further room to run. The analyst has a Buy rating on the shares with a $40 price target. The stock in afternoon trading is up 9% to $25.78.

Broadcom Q2 estimate concerns overblown, says Oppenheimer
After meeting with management, Oppenheimer analyst Rick Schafer believes concerns over the Q2 estimates for Broadcom (AVGO) are overblown. The staggered launches of the two new iPhones creates near-term upside potential, Schafer tells investors in a research note. The company remains his top pick for 2018 with or without Qualcomm (QCOM). He keeps an Outperform rating on the shares with a $315 price target.

Piper says buy Skyworks on pullback from iPhone 'noise'
Piper Jaffray analyst Harsh Kumar recommends using the pullback in shares of Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) on concerns over iPhone X demand as a buying opportunity. Despite "noise" of supply chain cuts, channel checks continue to indicate that the Apple (AAPL) supply chain is still working hard to meet demand, Kumar tells investors in a research note. He is not aware of specific supply chain cuts and remains "very comfortable" with Skyworks' Street estimates for the December and the March quarters. The overall impact from consumers choosing the iPhone 7 over the iPhone X is relatively minor compared to Skyworks' overall revenue stream, Kumar writes. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $115 price target. Skyworks closed yesterday down 2%, or $1.87, to $95.20.

JPMorgan sees opportunities in Wireless Semiconductors, prefers Qorvo
JPMorgan analyst Bill Peterson believes the recent pullback in Wireless Semiconductor names, specifically Apple-exposed stocks, creates a good opportunity for investors to take long positions. The analyst sees the most upside in Qorvo (QRVO). He believes fears of production cuts and demand weakness are overblown. The December quarter and outlook for the March quarter are tracking to company expectations that have been built on conservative prospects for smartphone demand, Peterson tells investors in a research note.
