Deutsche Bank Upgrades Maxim Integrated Products To Buy, $30 PT
In a research report issued today, Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Seymore upgraded shares of Maxim Integrated Products (NASDAQ:MXIM) to Buy, while maintaining a price target of $30.
Seymore noted, “Long admirers of the co’s strong execution, we have nevertheless feared its significant customer and end market concentration inherent in its Consumer business (Samsung/handsets). With Samsung exposure falling from >30% to ~10%, concentration risk has diminished substantially in our view. Furthermore, we applaud MXIM’s adjusting its cost structure to a new slow-growth climate. With MXIM trading at ~14x ex-cash CY15E P/E and 10x CY15E EV/FCF, we believe shares represent a favorable risk/reward. Consequently, we upgrade to Buy.”
