Qualcomm's $44B purchase of NXP Semi approved by China regulators, SCMP says

China Ministry of Commerce has approved Qualcomm's (QCOM) proposed $44B bid for NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), South China Morning Post reported, citing people familiar with discussions. The report notes that China regulators had concerns about the impact of the combined entity with regards to Qualcomm's patent licensing in mobile payments and autonomous driving, adding that neither the timing nor the conditions of Qualcomm's potential asset sales to complete the merger were disclosed.

Equal Weight
NXP Semiconductors / Qualcomm deal still likely to happen, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Craig Hettenbach kept his Equal Weight rating and $127.50 price target on NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), saying his base case scenario remains that the deal with Qualcomm (QCOM) will be approved by China's Commerce Ministry. The analyst adds that China regulators' stance may be determined by the nature of the resolution around the ban on imports for ZTE (ZTCOY), which will be a "key development to monitor". Hettenbach also expects any extension of the merger date to result in a 8% decline for NXP Semiconductors stock price, while an outright rejection would see the stock down in $88-$96 per share range.

NXP Semiconductors downgraded to Hold at SunTrust on valuation
As reported earlier, SunTrust analyst William Stein downgraded NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) to Hold from Buy and kept his $119 price target, saying the current stock price is above fair value and demands "an explicit view" that the Qualcomm (QCOM) bid will receive approval from China regulators. Stein notes that currently, the likelihood of such approval would be "only a guess", but adds that the run-up in the stock price since his April upgrade was in response to a sentiment shift over trade negotiations with China, which has been "robust". The analyst further states that last week's agreement between the U.S. government and ZTE (ZTCOY) has made sentiment around the Qualcomm bid "sanguine".

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. SemGroup (SEMG) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Michael Blum saying he believes its growth trajectory is mostly reflected in valuation. 2. Host Hotels (HST) and Park Hotels (PK) were downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs, Host Hotels was also downgraded to In Line from Outperform at Evercore ISI. 3. NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust with analyst William Stein saying the current stock price is above fair value and demands "an explicit view" that the Qualcomm (QCOM) bid will receive approval from China regulators. 4. Nektar (NKTR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at H.C. Wainwright with analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay saying an updated cut of NKTR-214 data presented at an investor conference on June 06, does not assuage fears on the outlook of NKTR-214 in the post ECHO-301, immuno-oncology combination therapy landscape. 5. DDR Corp. (DDR) downgraded to Underperform from In Line at Evercore ISI. This list is just a portion of The Fly's analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Smartphone supply chain may have some upside in Q2, says Rosenblatt
Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang believes there may be some upside for the smartphone supply chain during Q2 despite conservative guidance from many component providers given the early ramp of production for a new iPhone from Apple (AAPL) at the beginning of August. He also believes Chinese OEMs recently increased their component orders as previous forecasts were too pessimistic and sell through of new smartphone models is getting slightly better. Publicly traded semiconductor makers include Intel (INTC), Marvell (MRVL), Microchip (MCHP), Micron (MU), Nvidia (NVDA), Qualcomm (QCOM) and Texas Instruments (TXN).

Qualcomm announces joint effort with Sprint to offer unlimited data
Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm (QCOM), announced a joint effort with Sprint (S) for Sprint to offer its customers free unlimited data in 2018 with AutoPay on Qualcomm Snapdragon Always Connected PCs from Asus, HP and Lenovo. Consumers expect an always-connected computing experience, and this offer is set to change the way people work, create and play on mobile PC devices as the ultrathin and 2-in-1 device category grows.

Broadcom remains a 'free cash flow machine,' says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Anthony Stoss reiterated a Buy rating and $330 price target on Broadcom (AVGO) following its Q2 earnings report, calling the company a free cash flow generating "machine." Stoss said in a research note that although management seemed to paint a more muted picture in the near-term, he is looking for a strong second half of the year driven by a rebound in their wireless business in connection with Apple's (AAPL) next generation phone ramp, and expects Broadcom to pursue smaller M&A with Qualcomm (QCOM) now in the rearview mirror.

Acacia Communications price target raised to $42 from $34 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst James Kisner raised his price target on Acacia Communications (ACIA) to $42, saying he is adding back the sales estimates related to ZTE (ZTCOY) now that an agreement with the U.S. Commerce Department has been reached. The analyst further states that he has taken a "relatively conservative" approach to modeling the ZTE contribution, while maintaining his view that "Acacia technology and exposure to the build-out of carrier metro networks, hyperscale data center interconnect, and the increasing use of coherent technology in ever-shorter distances in networks" justify a Buy rating.

The analyst also anticipates an acceleration in Fabrinet's industrial laser business as well as an improved FX dynamic following two years of exchange rate pressure on the Thai Baht.
