  • Rosenblatt analyst Kevin Cassidy initiated coverage of Rambus Inc RMBS with a Buy rating and $35 price target, implying a 60.55% upside.
  • Cassidy believes Rambus is well-positioned to benefit from the increasing demand for high-performance DRAM in data systems, particularly artificial intelligence applications.
