Broadcom shares are poised for a boost because the chip maker recently had big design wins, including components for the next iPhone, said a JPMorgan analyst in reiterating his overweight rating.

The company is slated to report fiscal third-quarter financial results Thursday after the market close.

Broadcom should beat estimates by JPMorgan and the rest of Wall Street on revenue, margins, earnings per share and free cash flow, wrote analyst Harlan Sur in a note to JPMorgan clients on Tuesday. "The company's diversification efforts are playing out and the team is driving numerous product cycles in the 2H of the year including significant dollar content gains in the next gen iPhone."
