Here are highlights from Wednesday's Analyst Blog:

Goldman, Deutsche Nearing Buyout Firm Acquisition

The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS-Free Report) and Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE:DB-Free Report), through their private equity wings, are inching closer to finalizing a deal to acquire the buyout unit of National Bank of Greece SA (NBG) per a Bloomberg report. However, no official revelation has been made so far.

Goldman Sachs Asset Management and DB Private Equity are in negotiation to shell out around £300 million ($506 million) for the acquisition of NBGI Private Equity Ltd. This figure is a third less than the Greek bank's original investment in the firm.

NBGI Private Equity's dismal performance might have pushed National Bank of Greece to vend off the unit. As per an April document quoted by Bloomberg News, the buyout unit has underperformed similar buyout firms and 10 of its 11 funds estimated to incur a loss of around €25 for every €100 invested.

National Bank of Greece is offloading assets to bolster its capital position before the European stress tests. The bank is approximately 84% owned by the Hellenic Financial Stability Fund (HFSF) – a rescue fund established to maintain stability in the Greek banking system. The Athens-based bank was rescued last year by the state with a bailout of €8.5 billion.

For Goldman and Deutsche Bank, the proposed deal seems to be in keeping with their investment goals.

Currently, Goldman Sachs carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) while Deutsche Bank carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

Broadcom Tech to Enhance Telefonica TV

Leading semiconductor solutions provider Broadcom Corp's (Nasdaq:BRCM-Free Report) high-efficiency video codec (HEVC)-enabled system-on-chip (SoC) technology received a big boost when global telecommunications provider Telefonica selected it to deliver Ultra High Definition (Ultra HD) Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) broadcasts.

Broadcom is focused on innovating technologies related to connectivity, bandwidth and content, which enable it to capture a sizeable market share. The SoC technology powered with HEVC will facilitate the transmission of 4K content by reducing bandwidth usage by 50%.

The service providers with limited broadband capacity also stand to gain by leveraging the higher bandwidth efficiency and thereby expanding their video subscriber base. The SoC technology enables efficient operator content delivery for increased footprint, higher resolution and/or additional channels. It also offers crystal clear and lifelike picture quality to enhance the TV viewing experience of the subscribers globally.

Broadcom is a premier semiconductor manufacturer in the fast-growing wired and wireless communications markets. The company has cutting-edge solutions for a growing number of connected users who are demanding more content and bandwidth.

Based in Irvine , CA , Broadcom is engaged in designing and marketing semiconductor components of network voice, video, and data traffic for various applications. The company continues to drive innovation and engineering excellence across a broad range of communication end markets to help its customers enhance device performance and overall efficiency.

Broadcom currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Other stocks that look promising and are worth a look in the industry include TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. (Nasdaq:TQNT-Free Report) and Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq:CY-Free Report), both carrying a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy)
