Analysts' Thoughts

AVGO stock took a big hit in May along with the overall semiconductor sector as trade negotiations between the U.S. and China eroded. The tech sector was hit particularly hard during the May pullback, and semiconductors fell sharply as concerns rose over demand should the trade war lead to a global recession. The stock has started to recover some of its May losses as the broader market stabilized over the last week, but the stock is still vulnerable to additional downside if trade negotiations do not improve quickly between the world’s two largest economies. Last quarter the company delivered a solid earnings beat while sales fell a bit shy of the consensus. Despite the sales miss the stock rallied on the positive earnings surprise and shares hit an all-time high before selling off in May with the overall market. The street expects another earnings beat with a whisper number of $5.35 for the quarter, and analysts have an average price target of $312.73 on the stock.
