  • Goldman Sachs Reiterates "Conviction Buy" Rating on Altera Following Dividend Hike (ALTR)

    On Monday, Goldman Sachs analysts reiterated their bullish rating on semiconductor manufacturer Altera Corporation (ALTR) , after the company announced a 50% dividend increase. The analysts believe that the dividend hike is just one of many to come, which is a positive for the stock. As such, they maintain a "Conviction Buy" rating on ALTR and see its shares reaching $41. This price target suggests a 24% upside to Monday's closing price of $33.13. "Although we recognize that Altera generates a large amount of cash overseas (we estimate about 80% of its total cash balance), we believe the company could raise additional debt against its overseas cash to fund its capital allocation plans. Taken together, we have high confidence that Altera will continue to increase its dividend, and we believe a yield over 3.0% is possible over the medium term," said Goldman Sachs analyst James Schneider. Altera shares were flat during pre-market trading on Tuesday. The stock is down -3.66% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Altera (ALTR) have a dividend yield of 1.81% based on last night's closing price of $33.13 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 60 cents per share. Altera Corporation (ALTR) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.0 out of 5 stars.
