GlobalFoundries Inc (NASDAQ:GFS) is well-positioned with only a 10% share of an addressable market opportunity estimated at $70 billion, across smartphone devices, IoT, automotive and data center, according to BofA Securities.
The GlobalFoundries Analyst: Vivek Arya initiated coverage of GlobalFoundries with a Buy rating and a price target of $88.
The GlobalFoundries Thesis: The company has long-term proprietary agreements worth around $20 billion, which gives strong visibility and pricing power, Arya said in the initiation note.
GlobalFoundries has “a Tier-1 base of customers,” including Qualcomm, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM), NXP Semiconductors NV (NASDAQ:NXPI), Analog Devices Inc (NASDAQ:ADI) and Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD), the analyst added.
“Emerging multi-year partnerships with automakers (Ford) and Tier-1s (Bosch) to address structural supply issues” as well as “lower capital intensity, stronger FCF over time due to deliver proprietary products on lower-cost/lagging edge equipment” are the other positives, Arya mentioned.
