We Recommend Buying ARM Shares, Says Canaccord
In a research report issued yesterday, Canaccord analyst Matthew Ramsay reiterate a Buy rating on ARM Holdings (NASDAQ:ARMH) with a $58 price target, ahead of ARM’s event TechCon event in Silicon Valley this week.
Ramsay wrote, “Given our belief 2H/14 royalty growth expectations were reset to achievable levels following JuneQ results, we recommend buying ARM shares ahead of reaccelerating Y/Y royalty growth rates in 2H/14 and 2015. We maintain our belief ARM is well positioned for strong sales and earnings growth driven by an expanding royalty rate in ARM’s key mobile markets as newer Cortex-A, big.LITTLE, and ARMv8 chip volumes increase, and by market share gains in underpenetrated markets including enterprise networking, server, embedded, and IoT/M2M. Further, we believe ARM’s annual TechCon event in Silicon Valley this week will highlight the size and diversity of these opportunities.”
