As previously reported, Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch upgraded Cree to Outperform from Perform, with a $53 price target on the stock, as he believes the company is in the early stages of a large growth opportunity with critically defensible IP for SiC in power management applications for renewables and EV's as well as GaN for 5G infrastructure buildout.
News For CREE From the Last 2 Days

Nomura Instinet analyst Krysten Sciacca last night rolled out coverage on Analog Semiconductors. The analyst expects the group to outperform throughout the remainder of 2018 given its "steadier business models" versus other semi sectors, "strong" free cash flow generation and the "strong" demand coming from the auto and industrial applications. Her top pick is ON Semiconductor (ON), which the analyst initiated with a Buy rating and $30 price target. ON currently trades at a 35% discount to the Analog group, but its multiple should expand as investors come to better appreciate the company's exposure to industrial and auto, Sciacca told investors in a research note. She believes the company's 2020 target model will likely prove conservative. Sciacca also initiated coverage of Microchip (MCHP) with a Buy rating and $110 price target. The stock currently trades at a 22% discount to the comp group, but its "aggressive" de-leveraging, market share gains, and "strong" executional track record warrant the stock returning to its historical five-year average premium of 2%, the analyst contends. She initiated Cree (CREE) with a Hold rating and $44 price target saying the stock is already pricing in tailwinds and assumed coverage of Analog Devices (ADI) with a Neutral rating and $100 price target.
