Concerns about Broadcom’s recent acquisition of Symantec’s enterprise software business are overblown and the stock is a compelling buying opportunity, Morgan Stanley told its clients on Tuesday.
Lead equity analyst Craig Hettenbach upgraded the stock to overweight from equal-weight and bumped his 12-month price target to $367 from $298, implying nearly 18% upside over the next year. Broadcom stock rose 2% in premarket trading Tuesday following the Morgan Stanley upgrade. Hettenbach calls it “our new top pick.”
