Wireless chipmaker Broadcom Corporation ( BRCM ) on Wednesday caught a big upgrade from analysts at Oppenheimer.

The firm said it boosted its rating on BRCM from "Perform" to "Outperform" with a $55 price target. That target suggests a massive 43% upside to the stock's Tuesday closing price of $38.45.

Oppenheimer noted the stock's recent pullback (down more than 11% year-to-date) has created a buying opportunity.

Broadcom shares rose 94 cents, or +2.4%, in premarket trading Wednesday.
