The firm reiterated its "Buy" rating on BRCM as well as its $46 price target, suggesting a 24% upside to the stock's Thursday closing price of $37.02.

A Jefferies analyst commented, "Based on the teardown of iPhone 4S (Nasdaq: AAPL) by iFixit.com, we believe that BRCM is the supplier of Bluetooth+Wi-Fi combo chip, and remains the vendor of choice for connectivity of the best-selling smartphones. We continue to think that BRCM is a good low-risk way of investing in the growth of smartphones. We reiterate our rating and suggest buying in front of earnings season."

Broadcom shares 51 cents, or +1.4%, in premarket trading Friday.
