Crowdstrike price target raised to $103 from $89 at BofA/Merrill
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Tal Liani noted that he had expected and incorporated some share gains for Crowdstrike (CRWD) from Symantec (SYMC) in his model, but following the recent announcement that Broadcom (AVGO) intends to buy Symantec's enterprise business he sees the potential for those share gains to accelerate. Liani, who raised his price target on Crowdstrike shares to $103 from $89, reiterated a Buy rating on the stock. Aside from the potential for Crowdstrike in antivirus, Liani sees other areas of cyber security where Symantec leads and he could see shares losses should Broadcom's deal create any uncertainty around Symantec's roadmap or commitment to R&D in the space. In email security the beneficiaries would be Proofpoint (PFPT) and Mimecast (MIME) and in secure web gateways the beneficiary could be Zscaler (ZS), Liani noted.

Symantec Consumer Cyber Safety a candidate to be taken private, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Philip Winslow notes that after announcing last month that Broadcom (AVGO) will acquire Symantec's (SYMC) Enterprise Security business, various news outlets reported that Advent International and Permira Holdings are interested in purchasing Symantec's Consumer Cyber Safety business for $26-$27 per share. The analyst believes Symantec's Consumer Cyber Safety business would be a potential candidate to be taken private in a leveraged buyout due given the relative stability of the segment's revenue and cash flow. Winslow reiterates a Market Perform rating and $25 price target on Symantec's shares.

Loop Capital expects cautious Q3 tone, return to growth in Q4 for Broadcom
Loop Capital analyst Cody Acree kept his Buy rating and $310 price target on Broadcom ahead of its Q3 earnings this Thursday. The analyst says that he expects the company to maintain its cautious stance regarding its channel and OEM inventory trends along with expressing concern over the direction of end-market demand as a result of the macro-related uncertainties. Acree still sees Broadcom returning to sequential and annual growth in Q4 as a result of the seasonal ramp of its largest mobile customer and the retaking of socket market share with upcoming models.
