Needham Believes Qorvo (NASDAQ: QRVO) Won’t Stop Here

By Jason Carr

Needham analyst Quinn Bolton reiterated a Buy rating on Qorvo (NASDAQ: QRVO) today and set a price target of $86. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $78.83, close to its 52-week high of $79.33.

Bolton said:

“Qorvo hosted an upbeat analyst day that focused on key IDP growth drivers and increasing RF dollar content in Mobile Products. Collectively, these drivers should enable QRVO to grow at least in-line with its TAM, which is growing at a 10%-15% CAGR. Management also highlighted the performance benefits of its BAW5 process, which is key to the company’s prospects of securing a portion of the mid-/high-band PAD module for Apple’s 2018 iPhone platform. With a statement of work under its Master Supply Agreement with Apple now in place for the mid-/high- band PAD module, we believe QRVO’s chances of securing this win have improved.”
