AVGO Stock: Fiscal 2024 Targets

“The acquisition of VMware is transformational,” Broadcom Chief Executive Hock Tan said in the earnings release. “In fiscal year 2024 we expect semiconductor to sustain its mid to high single digit revenue growth rate, with the contribution of VMware driving consolidated revenue to $50 billion and adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes depreciation and amortization) to $30 billion.”

Broadcom’s 2023 revenue rose 8% to $35.82 billion. VMware had revenue of $13.61 billion in the twelve months ending Aug. 4, growing 3.5%. Broadcom’s 2024 guidance of $50 billion in combined revenue didn’t raise the bar much for Wall Street analysts.

Heading into the Broadcom earnings report, AVGO stock had jumped 62% in 2023.

AVGO stock holds an entry point of 923.67, according to IBD MarketSmith charts. Broadcom stock owns a Relative Strength Rating of 93 out of a best-possible 99.
