Ambarella, Silicon Labs could be next as semiconductor M&A heats up, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst John Vinh believes semiconductor M&A activity is starting to heat up again, and sees diversification into secular growth areas in IoT, automotive, and cloud, and increased scale and customer breadth, as key underlying deal drivers within the space. The analyst expects further consolidation to continue, but notes U.S./China political tensions and uncertainty regarding regulatory approvals could limit larger scale M&A. Companies that could be acquired next include Ambarella (AMBA) or Silicon Labs (SLAB), he contends, while expecting Broadcom (AVGO), Applied Materials (AMAT), Intel (INTC), NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), Skyworks (SWKS), Texas Instruments (TXN), and Xilinx (XLNX) to be the most acquisitive.

Neutral
Semiconductor Capital Equipment group cut to Neutral at DA Davidson on valuation
As previously reported, DA Davidson analyst Thomas Diffely cut his ratings on Lam Research (LRCX), Kulicke and Soffa (KLIC), Ichor Holdings (ICHR), Applied Materials (AMAT), and Advanced Energy Services (AEIS) to Neutral from Buy as part of his broader research note downgrading the Semiconductor Capital Equipment group following its "significant" year-to-date appreciation. The analyst cites the delayed recovery in memory along with the "cycle uncertainty" in assigning more "conservative" valuation multiples to these stocks and believes that their risk-reward profiles look "fairly balanced" at current levels. Diffely also lowers his price target on Lam Research to $200 from $225, Kulicke and Soffa to $26 from $30, Ichor Holdings to $25 from $32, Applied Materials to $45 from $55, and Advanced Energy Services to $55 from $60.

Conviction Buy
Applied Materials upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Toshiya Hari upgraded Applied Materials (AMAT) to Buy from Neutral and added the stock to the firm's Conviction List, citing his belief that meaningful capex cuts and production adjustments from memory chip makers, coupled with recent supply-side disruptions, will result in an improvement in memory supply/demand sooner than previously expected and drive higher levels of Wafer Fab Equipment spending in 2020. The analyst, who now forecasts the WFE market to grow 7% -year-over-year in 2020 compared to his prior assumption of it being flat, still noted he sees downside to Street estimates for the second half and for calendar year 2020. Hari, who raised his 2020 WFE assumptions in both NAND and DRAM, increased his price target on Applied shares to $56 from $48. Hari also upgraded Lam Research (LRCX) to Buy from Neutral and raised his rating on KLA-Tencor (KLAC) to Neutral from Sell, citing similar grounds.

Applied Materials well positioned to outperform in 2020, says Stifel
In a preview of Applied Materials' (AMAT) July-end quarterly report, Stifel analyst Patrick Ho said he expects the company to meet his $3.52B and 69c revenue and pro-forma EPS estimates and sees the company reiterating some of the same commentary on the current environment that has been made recently by other industry players. However, he continues to believe Applied is well positioned to outperform in 2020, citing its favorable position in TSMC (TSM), which he calls "the leading-edge foundry," as well as an expected recovery in NAND spending and the beginnings of a recovery in display spending. Ho keeps a Buy rating and $57 price target on Applied Materials shares.
