Shah proclaims, Broadcom is the new "A" in "FANG".
The analyst stated "We expect Broadcom to continue to make solid progress toward its target operating model of 42-43% through merger synergies. We are forecasting stable gross margin at 60% and for expenses to declines 120 bps to 20.4% of sales, resulting in operating margin of ~40% in the October period. In addition, weighted average interest rate will decline this quarter from slightly below 4% to slightly below 3% at current LIBOR rates. This should generate an incremental $25m or $0.06/share per quarter in cash interest expense savings".
