Rambus Shares Upgraded and 4 Chip and Big Data Stocks on the Move

Broadcom Corp. (NASDAQ:BRCM) has supplied the NFC controller that is used in Nintendo’s Wii U games console, according to a teardown. This makes the second recent significant design win for Broadcom, as last week Google put the company’s NFC controllers into its most recent Android reference devices. Also, the teardown, which was conducted by repair specialist iFixit, showed that the Wii U GamePad has an NFC daughterboard that uses a BCM 20792 controller chip along with a separate NFC antenna.

Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ:RMBS) shares have been upgraded by JPMorgan Chase from Neutral to Overweight in a research note that was released on Monday. Now, they have given the stock a $7.00 price target. The Analyst wrote, “After falling 46% year-to-date (S&P 500 up 8.1%), we think the stock, trading at trough-level multiples, is now largely de-risked. At $4.00-$4.50 we think investors are limited from further downside by the value of SBG contracted revenue (even without renewals) plus cash on hand, and the break-up value of the LED and CRI new businesses. We believe a potential settlement with Hynix presents near-term upside for short-term investors.”
