In a research report issued today, Canaccord analyst Michael Walkley reiterated a Buy rating on shares of Qorvo Inc (NASDAQ:QRVO) with a $77 price target, after the Company’s CFO Steve Buhaly conducted investor meetings at the Canaccord Genuity Global Growth Conference in Boston.
Walkley wrote, “Management highlighted its integrated solutions platforms, growing content share in LTE smartphones, and strong long-term growth opportunities for both its smartphone related solutions and its IDP business. Despite the recent September quarter guidance below consensus due to slighlty weaker Android smartphone sales trends at some of its Chinese OEM customers, we believe the inventory correction at some of its customers is temporary and anticipate strong RFIC growth trends will continue through at least C2017.”
“In fact, we believe Qorvo has a broad RFIC portfolio for the mobile device market and is well positioned to benefit from strong secular RFIC TAM growth trends. Further, we believe Qorvo has an industry-leading nonhandset related RFIC portfolio addressing the higher-margin defense & aerospace and networks infrastructure markets. Finally, as evidenced by the strong margins achieved in Q1/F’16, we believe Qorvo can continue to leverage cost synergies through consolidating fab facilities, optimizing R&D expenditures, and eliminating duplicate costs.”, the analyst added.
