The semiconductor behemoth now forecasts about $50 billion in revenue for fiscal 2024 – including the “transformational” VMware acquisition that it completed last month.

Experts, in comparison, were at $39.2 billion only but it’s unclear if their estimates included VMware. On CNBC’s “Earnings Exchange”, Mariann Montagne of Gradient Investments said today:

We expect synergies coming out of the VMware acquisition will be very powerful. We still think there’s mid-teens upside in this name with a 2.0% dividend yield.

Oppenheimer analyst Rick Schafer also predicted in his recent research note that VMware will boost annual revenue and earnings per share of Broadcom Inc by $15 billion and 9.0%, respectively.

His $1,100 price target on $AVGO suggests about a 20% upside from here.
