Broadcom testing investors' faith, Barron's says

For a while, shareholders of Broadcom (AVGO) had reasons to crow as the stock price appreciated 560% from late 2013 through the end of last year, Tiernan Ray writes in this week's edition of Barron's. But last week, CEO Hock Tan dropped a bombshell, announcing the company would spend $19B in cash to buy CA (CA), which prompt a wave of stock downgrades as it turns out faith in Tan came with conditions, the report notes. Tan appears to be signaling that reasonable M&A targets may be exhausted, Ray adds. Reference Link

CA Technologies buyout could be positive for Okta, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Terry Tillman said Broadcom's (AVGO) acquisition of CA Technologies (CA) could present a potential disruption of the business and lead to incremental share gains by Okta (OKTA) in the multiple segments of identity and access management markets where the two compete. The distractions that come from a large buyout like this could drive share gains and billings activity for Okta "relatively quickly," Tillman tells investors. He reiterates a Buy rating and $63 price target on Okta shares.

Broadcom downgraded to Market Perform at BMO Capital after CA acquisition
As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst Ambrish Srivastava downgraded Broadcom (AVGO) to Market Perform from Outperform and slashed his price target to $230 from $345. The analyst points to its decision to acquire CA Technologies (CA), a company with half of its business in decline, being "so far out of the company's core competency and inconsistent with the company's recent messaging, that it raises more questions than answers". Srivastava adds that while Broadcom has a decent history of "acquiring underperforming semi assets, aggressively cutting costs, and integrating the acquisitions", he says it would be "presumptuous" to expect a repeat of that pattern in software given CA's declining mainframe business.

Broadcom downgraded to Market Perform on strategy change at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James downgraded Broadcom (AVGO) to Market Perform from Strong Buy. Analyst Chris Caso said Broadcom's acquisition of CA Technologies (CA) signals the company is taking a different path towards strategy than what the company led investors to expect a year ago. Caso said the company's revised strategy seeks to consolidate a broader areas of technology, pursuing slower growth, high cash flow businesses, rather than returning cash to shareholders and pursuing smaller deals after successfully consolidating the networking semiconductor industry. Broadcom's new strategy carries increased risks, and will pressure Broadcom's multiple, Caso wrote in a note to investors.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. UBS CUTS NETFLIX TO NEUTRAL: UBS analyst Eric Sheridan downgraded Netflix (NFLX) to Neutral while raising his price target for the shares to $425 from $375. The stock has appreciated 35% since the Q1 earnings report and 117% year-to-date, Sheridan told investors in a research note. The analyst said he believes the shares already reflect a 40 times GAAP EBITDA multiple on 2022 estimates. In addition to valuation, Sheridan does not see the "pronounced upside" to Monday's Q2 results relative to prior quarters. B RILEY FBR ALSO CAUTIOUS ON NETFLIX: Searches for new Netflix shows slowed to flattish versus the year-ago period, and year-over-year growth in global searches for the term "Netflix" also slowed somewhat, B. Riley FBR analyst Barton Crockett told investors in a research note. Amid heightened expectations, the analyst finds the flattish search volume as "potentially cautionary." The analyst reiterated a Neutral rating on Netflix with a $313 price target. After the cautious notes, Netflix is down almost 2% in late morning trading. GOLDMAN SACHS RAISES TWITTER TARGET: Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry raised his price target on Twitter (TWTR) to $55 and kept his Buy rating, saying that despite the run-up in the stock price year-to-date, consensus expectation on the company continue to underestimate its drive to increase and better monetize user engagement. The analyst contended that despite trading at a higher valuation on enterprise value to expected FY19 EBITDA, its growth rate justifies the premium. BROADCOM DOWNGRADED FOLLOWING CA DEAL: B. Riley FBR analyst Craig Ellis downgraded Broadcom (AVGO) to Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $245 from $308 following the company's acquisition of CA Technologies (CA). The deal adds strategic and operational uncertainty, Ellis tells investors in a research note. RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani also downgraded Broadcom, to Outperform from Top Pick, and lowered his price target to $300 from $330 after its acquisition of CA Technologies. The analyst noted that the deal places Broadcom "in the penalty box from a valuation expansion perspective", stating that while it offers "strong accretion" and provides a "foundation to perhaps scale its model beyond traditional semiconductor sector", it is also entering a market where it has limited history, likely tempering investor optimism on the stock going forward. Broadcom shares were also downgraded by analysts at Longbow, Macquarie and B. Riley FBR following last night's deal announcement.
