Avago Technologies’s “Neutral” Rating Reaffirmed at Zacks (AVGO)
Avago Technologies (NASDAQ:AVGO)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating reaffirmed by Zacks in a research note issued on Thursday. They currently have a $90.00 price objective on the stock. Zacks‘s price objective would indicate a potential upside of 5.40% from the company’s current price.
Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Avago reported strong third-quarter fiscal 2014 results with adjusted earnings well exceeding the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Avago is one of the leading players in the analog semiconductor market with a wide array of products and a well-diversified customer base. Avago further expects to strengthen its position through organic growth across the industry verticals and increased market penetration buoyed by the LSI acquisition. In addition to cost synergies from a combined resource pool, the acquisition has improved operating margin and has created greater scale to further drive innovation. However, operating risks regarding high R&D costs for technology-driven products could weigh on the margins moving forward. We maintain our Neutral recommendation on Avago as we anticipate the stock to perform in line with the broader market. “
