Daryanani noted, “We remain bullish on AVGO and expect the stock to sustain its outperformance driven by multiple self-help levers, which could result in $15 in EPS by CY18. Key takeaways: 1) Wireless growth is constrained by 100% capacity utilization as current/future customers want more allocation of FBAR; 2) While content is stable with large OEMs, it’s expected we see double digit (we think 20-30%+ conservatively) growth in next gen product, 3) BRCM on schedule to close early 2016, keep an eye on MOFCOM deadlines in late-September; and 4) Positive HDD comments on conference call were reflective of PCs & enterprise.”
