Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri reiterated an Outperform rating and bumped his price target on Micron Technology (NASDAQ: MU) to $21.00 (from $19.00) ahead of the Inotera deal closure.

Arcuri commented, "We see Inotera adding ~$0.15-0.20 and $300-400MM to MU's EPS and FCF, respectively, in both C2017/18. Leverage will increase (PF leverage ~3.7x on a gross basis, ~2.5x on a net basis), but MU should still be able to rapidly de-lever and achieve 1.5x net debt/EBITDA by CYE17. Ultimately, we raise target $19 to $21 on same peer 5x multiple as Inotera should REDUCE MU's EV/EBITDA by ~0.5x."

The firm sees the closure of Inotera likely by mid-December and thinks that MU will begin to guide results with Inotera starting in the Feb Q.
