It’s time to move to the sidelines in Arm stock – analyst says

By: Invezz
arm stock downgraded to neutral

Arm Holdings PLC (NASDAQ: ARM) ended in the red on Tuesday after a New Street Research analyst issued a dovish call on the chip design company.

Arm shares have more than doubled already

Pierre Ferragu downgraded the Nasdaq-listed firm this morning to “neutral” citing an “unattractive risk-reward” now that its shares have more than doubled since the start of this year.

He agreed that $ARM could trade at up to 40 times fiscal 2028 EBIT if the semiconductor behemoth performed at the “top of its game” – but opted for a dovish stance since Arm stock is already trading above that level at writing.

New Street Research’s call on the British company arrives only weeks after it reported a blockbuster fiscal third quarter and issued impressive guidance for the future.

Watch here: stock valuation is hard to justify

Pierre Ferragu warned clients against holding Arm stock today because its valuation can only be justified if it tops quarterly expectations by 50% at least.

We would see a rationale to buy the stock today only if it can deliver a 15% return. Even with a 40x forward multiple in 2027, we don’t see that possible with the stock above $110.

$ARM ARM Holdings looking for a 50x multiple… and this isn't a bubble? This valuation is Covid $ZM on steroids.

Note that Arm chips power almost every smartphone in the world. Among the company’s prominent customers are Microsoft, Apple, Google, and even Nvidia Corp.

Rene Haas – the chief executive of Arm Holdings PLC expects continued focus on artificial intelligence to be a meaningful tailwind for $ARM.
