Neutral
Qualcomm resumed with a Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Christopher Danely resumed coverage of Qualcomm (QCOM) with a Neutral rating and $58 price target. The analyst believes the proposed acquisition of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) could eventually drive earnings accretion of roughly 44% or $1.52, but he does not have confidence in the $500M in synergies. Danely expects a host of integration difficulties given differences in manufacturing, customer base, and NXP's merger with Freescale.

Neutral
NXP Semiconductors resumed with a Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Christopher Danely resumed coverage of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) with a Neutral rating and $127.50 price target. The analyst expects Qualcomm (QCOM) to close the acquisition of NXP at the current proposed price of $127.50 per share. He believes, however, that there is "some potential for the deal to break due to approval from China given the trade war." If the deal falls apart, Danely expects NXP shares to trade to $90.

Broadcom price target lowered to $300 from $330 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Romit Shah lowered his price target for Broadcom (AVGO) to $300 citing disappoint in the company being unsuccessful in its attempt to acquire Qualcomm (QCOM). Acquisitions have been a key driver of growth, Shah tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, believes Broadcom shares offer a good risk/reward and he keeps a Buy rating on the name.

UBS starts Semiconductors coverage, says sell Micron, Texas Instruments
UBS analyst Timothy Arcuri started coverage on the U.S. Semiconductors and Semi Equipment sector, expressing the view that consolidation and a slowdown in Moore's Law should actually lead to pricing power and inflationary effects that are still in the early innings. However, he also believes semis are still cyclical and sees some signs of caution moving into later 2018 and 2019. Arcuri, who is cautious on the memory cycle in the near-term, started Micron (MU) with a Sell rating and $35 price target, citing those cyclical memory concerns. He also has one other Sell rating among his 14 recommendations, on Texas Instruments (TXN), citing its fading leverage, a more level playing field for capital return and his cyclical concerns. Among the 14 stocks he initiated, Arcuri has 4 Buy ratings - Intel (INTC), given his above consensus call for datacenter group growth and what he sees as a mispricing of long-term growth potential; Marvell (MRVL) and Broadcom (AVGO), which he views as transformation stories; and KLA-Tencor (KLAC), on its migration to industrial tech and exposure to AI-related compute growth.

Hold
Qualcomm resumed with a Hold at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Seymore resumed coverage of Qualcomm (QCOM) with a Hold rating and $60 price target. The analyst expects the shares to remain range-bound given the slowing pace of smartphone growth, potential for share loss in QCT, and ongoing litigation pressuring the QTL business. He sees these partially offset by accretion from the acquisition of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI).
