Analog Devices downgraded at Barclays
On October 24, 2022, Blayne Curtis from Barclays downgraded Analog Devices to Equal Weight and set a price target of $140, down from $180.

He says that demand for autos and industrial goods is slowing, citing Analog Device’s report of slowing orders and modest cancellations in its last earnings call.
Analog Devices price target lowered at Deutsche Bank
On October 18, 2022, Ross Seymore of Deutsche Bank lowered the price target on Analog Devices to $155 from $170, but kept a Hold rating on the shares. According to a research note by Seymore, investors are very bearish on the Q3 results for the Semiconductor sector because of fears of fundamental deterioration. The analyst expects Q3 earnings season to yield more signs of weakness, and he sees downside risk for the second quarter in a row. Seymore is becoming more positive about the semiconductor stocks. He says that the drop in the sector and the fact that they have performed worse than the S&P 500 have clearly made people think that there will be big cuts to the rev/EPS estimates, and this has left the group’s valuation 20% below its 5-year average.
