In a research report published Friday, Brean Capital analyst Mike Burton initiated coverage on shares of Qorvo Inc (NASDAQ:QRVO) with a Buy rating and an $80 price target, which implies an upside of 24% from current levels.
Burton said, “Qorvo is the new entity created after the completion of the merger of equals between RFMD and TQNT, which commenced trading on Friday, January 2nd. As we had articulated prior to the completion of the merger, our bullish outlook is based on strong secular growth in RF as 4G proliferates, QRVO’s achievable cost synergies, and the attractive valuation of the shares.”
The analyst continued, “While there is execution risk associated with the integration of any merger, at 11.6x our estimated CY16 EPS of $5.55, QRVO is trading at a steep discount to its peers and broader Semis.”
