The Altium Limited (ASX: ALU) share price could be good value according to one leading broker. This morning the team at Bell Potter upgraded this electronic design software company’s shares to a buy rating with a $42.50 price target. The broker believes that Altium could still be a takeover target for Autodesk. Its analysts feel Altium’s software would complete Autodesk’s Fusion 360 platform.
