Qorvo downgraded to Sector Weight at KeyBanc after demand checks

As previously reported, KeyBanc analyst Weston Twigg downgraded Qorvo (QRVO) to Sector Weight from Overweight given further weakening Apple (AAPL) iPhone demand trends, weaker than expected China smartphone demand, and indications Qualcomm (QCOM) is finally gaining market share on RF360 amid transition to 5G in 2H19. While the analyst believes Qorvo remains well positioned for 5G longer term and sees modest downside risk with the stock trading near trough valuation, Twigg struggles to see positive catalysts given the disappointing iPhone cycle and weakening demand environment for China smartphones. Overall, his quarterly Asia supply chain findings and demand checks left him incrementally more cautious on the semiconductor space.

Neutral
Qorvo initiated with a Neutral at Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Christopher Rolland last night started Qorvo with a Neutral rating and $70 price target. The analyst recognizes approaching 5G "tailwinds," but he sees near-term industry challenges from global trade tensions and a potential Chinese slowdown. Further, while Apple has always been a significant driver of high-end radio frequency content, the analyst does not expect a full 5G product until the second half of 2020.

Neutral
Skyworks, Qorvo initiated at Neutral at Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Chris Roland initiated Skyworks (SWKS) and Qorvo (QRVO) with a Neutral rating and respective price targets of $80 and $70. The analyst notes that while "the last few years have been tremendous for RF companies" amid the "advent of high-end 4G handsets in 2013 and subsequent global proliferation into the mid-range", the ramp going forward should be more measured in spite of the emerging "5G dynamic". The analyst also cites the smartphone market that is approaching saturation as "consumer handset replacement rates are lengthening". Roland further points to the global trade tensions and a potential economic slowdown in China adding to the companies' heightened uncertainty.

Neutral
NXP Semiconductors initiated with a Neutral at Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Chris Roland initiated NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $90. The analyst expects the company to benefit from its "substantial auto exposure" but also warns that trade tensions, soft auto sales, and "contracting industry lead times" warrant a near-term pause. Roland adds that once the "Qualcomm (QCOM) hangover" subsides, NXP Semiconductors revenue will re-accelerate as the company refocuses on its core business. The analyst is further positive on the company's "diversification away from Apple (AAPL) and handsets, and focus on new growth opportunities including high-power RF's in 5G infrastructure".

UBS cuts Apple target to $210 from $225 after surveying 6,900 consumers
UBS analyst Timothy Arcuri lowered his price target for Apple to $210 from $225 while keeping a Buy rating on the shares. The stock closed Tuesday down $8.13, or 4%, to $176.69. UBS Evidence Lab's 9th Global Smartphone Survey, which includes 6,900 consumers across five countries, indicates more lengthening of smartphone upgrade cycles, especially in Japan and the U.S., Arcuri tells investors in a research note. For iPhone, consumer purchase intention was "down across the board," most significantly in the U.S. and China, adds the analyst. Arcuri adds that new iPhone models, consistently 70%-75% of mix based on both purchase intent and ultimate unit sell-in in previous surveys, have fallen to 59% of the mix, the "lowest in the data set."

Phone buyer sources point to cuts in Apple iPhone XR orders, says OTR Global
OTR Global said its checks indicate that smartphone buyers and managers at network operators, retailers and distributors in China, Europe and India have mostly reduced their 1Q19 orders for Apple's iPhone XR as sell-through in Q4 has fallen below expectations. 13 of 15 Asian sources reported oversupply for iPhone XR and 4 of 7 Chinese sources noted reduced iPhone XR retail prices, OTR added.

Apple price target lowered to $236 on China weakness at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty lowered her FY19 iPhone units forecast to 200M from 213M after her recent meetings in Asia highlighted a weakening China smartphone market, especially at the high-end. However, her Google trends analysis suggests global demand for the new iPhones is holding up, at least relative to past cycles, after the XR launch in November, which leads her to conclude that iPhone revenue downside is "largely isolated to China." The analyst, who added that weak iPhone shipments on the back of lengthening replacement cycles doesn't translate to installed base and Services weakness, lowered her FY19 revenue forecast to $277B, or 4% year-over-year revenue growth. Huberty cut her price target on Apple shares to $236 from $253, but keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

Meaningful reset in Street semiconductor growth expectations coming, says UBS
UBS analyst Timothy Arcuri believes Street growth expectations for semiconductors are too high and thinks there could be a meaningful reset in expectations coming over the next couple of months. He cites the October SIA data, which showed a decline of revenues on broad-based weakness across memory and analog MCU. Publicly traded companies in the semiconductors space include AMD (AMD), Intel (INTC), Marvell (MRVL), Microchip (MCHP), Micron (MU), Nvidia (NVDA), Qualcomm (QCOM) and Texas Instruments (TXN).

Equal Weight
Morgan Stanley says 'a lot has changed' since Qualcomm first bid to buy NXP
After the White House issued a statement that noted Chinese President Xi said he is open to approving Qualcomm's (QCOM) previous bid to buy NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) if it were presented to him again, Morgan Stanley analyst Craig Hettenbach noted that "a lot has changed" since Qualcomm's initial offer. The semiconductor industry was in the midst of an upcyle at that time, but it is now in the midst of a correction that will likely mean downward estimate revision risk in 2019, Hettenbach said. If NXP were presented with another offer, he thinks the board could be open to the idea, but would likely require greater certainty of approval before committing given that the drawn out approval process was a material overhang last time. Hettenbach maintains an Equal Weight rating on NXP shares with a $100 price target.

Circumstances have changed materially for NXP and Qualcomm, says Stifel
After the White House released an official statement regarding President Trump's meeting with China, including a quote that Chinese President Xi Jinping would consider "approving the previously unapproved Qualcomm-NXP deal should it be presented to him," Stifel analyst Tore Svanberg said "circumstances have changed materially" for both Qualcomm (QCOM) and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) since their deal was terminated. Qualcomm's stock buybacks and its payment of the $2B break-up fee to NXP has shifted the company's previous $13.5B net cash position to a $4.2B net debt position, noted Svanberg. For its part, NXP has "aggressively" been repurchasing shares to see its own net debt expand from $2.4B to $4.4B in a quarter, the analyst added. While this combined $19.2B depletion in net cash doesn't preclude Qualcomm from making a renewed bid, it does materially alter the economics and potential structure of such a deal, concluded Svanberg, who added that this news could have positive implications for analog semis in general. He maintains a Sell rating on NXP Semiconductors shares with a $78 price target.
