Mizuho Cuts SanDisk To Hold; Prefers Micron, Broadcom
By Teresa Rivas

March 2, 2016, 9:59 A.M. ET
blogs.barrons.com


Another day, another downgrade for SanDisk ( SNDK) ahead of its acquisition by Western Digital ( WDC).

On Wednesday, Mizuho Securities’ Vijay Rakesh cut his rating on SanDisk to Neutral. He writes that the move comes as SanDisk is closing in on his price target and the $78.50 offer price.

Rakesh believes that the merger is still on track, and he expects it to close sometime in the second quarter. He writes that investors instead should rotate into Micron Technology ( MU), “as it gears up for better costs and an Inotera roll-up, with incremental book value and free cash flow. He also suggests investors should look into Broadcom (AVGO) before its earnings report Thursday, citing improved visibility in the second half of the year and synergies from its merger with Avago Technologies. (Pacific Crest also recommended buying Broadcom ahead of earnings yesterday.)

Details from his note:

We are moving to the sidelines on SNDK, with the stock ~6% from our PT and the WDC offer price of $78.50. We expect the deal to get shareholder approval with ISS also backing the transaction. We believe WDC needs NAND on its roadmap, as 70% of the HDD market with PC-client moves to flash. Nonetheless, SNDK faces multiple headwinds from slowing smartphones and retail (combined 70% of revenue) to exchange rate headwinds in the Yen, an upcoming Samsung license renewal and a runaway 3D-NAND roadmap. The offer price of $78.50 on SNDK is ~23x our F16E EPS.

Micron (Buy). We believe MU offers an attractive opportunity with our $13PT, ~20% upside, and the stock trading around 0.9x book. MU last traded in this range when it recorded losses for 3-4 straight quarters and had negative 20-30% GMs. We believe MU should start to see improving costs and GM, with Inotera adding ~$2-3 to the book value, and ~$700M of incremental FCF (post Capex). MU has noted significant 20% cost reductions in DRAM and 30% in NAND. We have MU rated Buy with a $13 PT, 9.6x our F17E EPS.

Broadcom (Ticker: AVGO). With the BRCM acquisition complete, we believe AVGO is better positioned ahead of an iPhone 6c ramp and a stronger 2H16, with iPhone builds (we estimate) up 9% in C2H16/C2H15 and upside to the $750M synergy estimate. Further, to add some context, AVGO was trading at $130 a week before the BRCM acquisition was announced May-28th, 2015. Fast forward, and with the markets having gone through a roller coaster, AVGO is still trading at ~$135 (vs. SOX down 10%) while EPS estimates for the out year have gone from ~$9 pre-BRCM to ~$12-$13. With the price action, we believe investors are getting BRCM almost for free. We would are buyers of AVGO with a $175 PT, 14.0x our F17E combined EPS of $12.35. AVGO can drive ~$6B/year of FCF, opening up opportunities for further potential for M&A and/or accretive shareholder actions.

SanDisk is up 0.9% in recent trading, while Micron is up 3% and Broadcom down 0.3%.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average also closed up, advancing 44.58 points (+0.26%) to close 16943.90.

Market data today included the initial claims reading for the week ending February 27, which showed a slight bump in claims to 278,000, up 6,000 versus last week. Continuing claims for the week ending February 20 increased 3,000 to 2.257 million. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported non-farm labor productivity declined at a 2.2% annual rate during Q4.

4:20 pm : The stock market ended the Thursday affair on a higher note with the S&P 500 gaining 0.4% ahead of tomorrow's release of the February Employment Situation Report. The benchmark index managed to erase a nine-point loss, climbing to its best level by the end of the day. Today's action saw relative strength from commodity-sensitive energy (+1.3%), which managed to outweigh the underperformance of the heavyweight technology (-0.1%) and health care (-0.4%) spaces. Meanwhile, a bid higher in safe haven assets did not detract from an upswing in equities while the greenback lost some ground today.

On the leaderboard, energy (+1.3%) managed to lead the pack while industrials (+0.6%) and financials (+0.5%) followed. Meanwhile, the heavily-weighted health care (-0.4%) and technology (-0.1%) were the only two spaces to end in the red.

The energy sector (+1.3%) showed resilience today as the sector outperformed despite a volatile and ultimately flat showing from WTI crude ($34.57/bbl). On that note, independent oil and gas name ConocoPhillips (COP 38.56, +2.07) managed to add to its advance while oil was up and maintained its footing when oil swung lower. Separately, energy giants Exxon Mobil (XOM 82.40, -0.30) and Chevron (CVX 87.53, +0.39) ended on opposing sides of their flat lines.

Elsewhere, the industrial sector (+0.6%) outperformed today as farm and construction names like Deere (DE 83.67, +1.83) and Caterpillar (CAT 71.75, 2.37) traded higher in sympathy with Joy Global (JOY 16.09, +2.77). Joy boosted sentiment for the sub-group after the company maintained its full-year earnings and revenue guidance, which was viewed as better that feared. Meanwhile, Norfolk Southern (NSC 77.00, +0.00) and Union Pacific (UNP 80.01, +0.51) outperformed, helping the Dow Jones Transportation Average (+1.1%) solidify its position in positive territory for the year (year-to-date +1.2%).

Biotechnology contributed to early and prolonged weakness in the health care sector as the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB 264.24, -3.88) surrendered 1.5%. Today's loss in the ETF extended its year-to-date decline to 21.9%. This compares to a 6.8% in the broader sector for the year. Additional weakness in the sector spawned from Abbott Labs (ABT 38.82, -0.52) and Eli Lilly (LLY 73.25, -0.77), which lost 1.3% and 1.0%, respectively.

In the technology space, large-cap constituents pulled back from their recent outperformance as Alphabet (GOOGL 731.59, -7.89) and Microsoft (MSFT 52.35, -0.60) surrendered 1.1% apiece. The two names have climbed 5.1% and 7.5% since the February 11 low in the S&P 500. Separately, the broader technology sector widened its 2016 decline to 3.4%.

The countercyclical sectors were able to recover from some early relative weakness as utilities (+0.6%), consumer staples (+0.5%), and telecom services (+0.3%) ended on their best levels. The three sectors sport the largest year-to-date advances of 6.9%, 2.2%, and 11.2%, respectively.

The Treasury complex ended its day higher despite the afternoon rally in equities. On that note, the yield on the 10-yr note slipped one basis point at 1.83%.

On the currency front, the euro/dollar pair rose 0.9% to 1.0966 while the dollar/yen pair ticked up 0.1% to 113.62, but retreated from its overnight high of 114.28.


Today's trading volume was heavier than the recent average with more than 1.12 billion shares changing hands at they NYSE floor.
Today's economic data included weekly initial claims, Q4 Productivity, Unit Labor Cost data, January Factory Orders, and ISM Services for February:
  • Initial claims data for the week ending February 27 showed a slight bump in claims to 278,000 (Briefing.com consensus 270,000), up 6,000 from the prior week's unrevised level.
    • There were no special factors influencing the latest reading, which kept initial claims pinned in the same 250,000 - 300,000 range they have been in since July 2014.
    • The four-week moving average for initial claims decreased 1,750 to 270,250.
  • Continuing claims for the week ending February 20 increased 3,000 to 2.257 million, which was basically in-line with the Briefing.com consensus estimate.
    • The four-week moving average for continuing claims pushed slightly lower to 2.257 million.
  • The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported nonfarm labor productivity decreased at a 2.2% annual rate during the fourth quarter (Briefing.com consensus -3.3%) versus a preliminary 3.0% decrease.
    • The updated productivity number was the byproduct of output increasing 1.0% and hours worked increasing 3.2%. From the fourth quarter of 2014 to the fourth quarter of 2015, productivity increased just 0.5%.
  • Unit labor costs in the nonfarm business sector increased 3.3% in the fourth quarter per the revised data versus a preliminary 4.5% increase. The revision reflected a 1.1% increase in hourly compensation and the 2.2% decrease in productivity.
    • Unit labor costs have increased 2.1% over the last four quarters.
  • Factory orders increased 1.6% in January. That was lower than the Briefing.com consensus estimate of 2.0%, but well above the unrevised 2.9% decline for December, which was the largest month-over-month decline since December 2014. Total factory orders are down 3.3% year-over-year.
    • Excluding transportation, factory orders declined 0.2% on the heels of a downwardly revised 0.9% decline (from -0.8%) for December. On a year-over-year basis, factory orders excluding transportation are down 5.1%.
    • New orders for manufactured durable goods increased 4.7%, which was down slightly from the 4.9% increase seen in the Durable Goods Orders report for January. New orders for nondefense capital goods excluding aircraft -- a proxy for business investment -- were up 3.4% versus an originally reported 3.9% increase seen in the Durable Goods orders report.
    • New orders for manufactured nondurable goods declined 1.4% following a downwardly revised 1.1% decline (from -0.8%) for December. That was the third straight monthly decline in orders for manufactured nondurable goods.
    • Shipments of manufactured durable goods increased 2.0% after an upwardly revised 1.8% decrease (from -2.1%) for December.
    • The inventory-to-shipments ratio for all manufacturing industries slipped to 1.36 from a downwardly revised 1.37 (from 1.38) for December.
Tomorrow's economic data will be limited to the Employment Situation Report for February (Briefing.com consensus 190k) and the Trade Balance for January (Briefing.com consensus -$44.0 billion).

Hi RtS,

Breadth of adv / decl has gone on long enough to begin to show in new highs.

Volume has sequencially grown since the reversal off the second bottom.

I understand your desire to see a confirmation day, but others believe a bottom must progress with doubt, as price advances with the fewest on board the advance (I think that has validity also).

Once again there are reversals from corrective waves and there are reversals from major bottoms.

I do not suppose that each reversal has to be similar.

That being said, I hope to see a confirmation day after the bottom has progressed up to where joe 6 pak has greed in his blood.

THAT"S what build bull markets and euphoria.

Its been a long time since that kind of a top has brewed.

If we look at major bottoms, we've been closer to those than we have distribution tops - I think we're due.

Bob

Bob, if only everyone had your optimism... we would have a major top every other week. <VBG>

The NYSE has actually been a lot stronger than the Nasdaq. Can it make a sustained rise above the downtrend line shown on the chart below:



I know your vote. You know mine.

LOL, RtS

Hi RtS,

LMAO,

I guess between you and me a guy can get a straight shot on this thread.

I do appreciate all of the great work you put up here.

Bob
