06:14 EDTMNSTMonster Beverage upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog upgraded Monster Beverage to Outperform saying the recent pullback in the shares provides a "compelling" entry point. The analyst points out her firm's recent beverage survey indicates Monster's U.S. distribution issues have largely been resolved and that the company's earnings are poised to reaccelerate in 2016 and beyond. Herzog raised her price target for Monster shares to $159-$161 from $139-$141. The energy drink maker closed Friday down $2.17 to $135.03 after Citron Research posted a cautious report on the company.

12:24 EDTMNSTCitron sees Monster Beverage shares hitting $80 in near term
Shares of Monster Beverage (MNST) are likely to hit $80 in the near term, Citron Research writes in a new research report on the energy drink maker. The short-selling research firm says valuing Monster versus Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS) results in 48% downside for the stock. "For the sake of the benefit of the doubt we used the post GMCR takeout value as a benchmark to get to $80 a share for Monster," Citron states. Monster shares are down $7.15, or 5%, to $130.05 in midday trading. Reference Link

Stifel said Monster is underperforming on concerns that a ban on energy drink sales to those under 18 years of age in Latvia could spread to other countries. Stifel said the concerns are a considerable overreaction, creating a buying opportunity. The firm's analyst said Latvia is barely a rounding error of the global energy drink market, and likely less than 0.1% of Monster's sales.
10:56 EDTPANWIT security stocks rise after Fortinet meets expectations
The shares of a number of IT security companies are rising after one of the companies in the sector, Fortinet (FTNT), reported in-line fourth quarter results last night. JPMorgan and RBC Capital were upbeat on the company's outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Fortinet reported Q4 EPS of 18c, in line with analysts' consensus outlook. The company's revenue was also in-line with the consensus outlook, while its billings jumped 35% versus the same period a year earlier. Moreover, Fortinet's fiscal 2016 guidance also came in near consensus estimates. ANALYST REACTION: Fortinet's results show that it is gaining market share, especially overseas and among U.S. small and medium businesses, JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty stated. Additionally, the company's margins look set to reach about 15% in fiscal 2016, up from 13% the previous year, and its free cash flow should jump 33% in fiscal 2016, the analyst predicted. He kept a $54 price target and Overweight rating on the shares, saying the quarter should bring a "welcomed lift" following the recent selloff in shares. Fortinet's guidance suggests that it will have more leverage than expected in fiscal 2016, but its outlook is also "somewhat conservative," RBC Capital analyst Dan Bergstrom wrote. Fortinet's stock is relatively cheap versus its peers and its historical norms, the analyst believes. However, he kept a $32 price target and Sector Perform rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Yesterday morning IT security company Check Point (CHKP) reported stronger than expected Q4 results and provided in-line fiscal 2016 EPS guidance, excluding certain items. Last night IT security company Proofpoint (PFPT) reported in-line Q4 results but provided lower than expected fiscal 2016 EPS guidance. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Fortinet climbed 6% to $28. Other IT security companies also advanced, with Palo Alto (PANW) surging 7.5%, Barracuda (CUDA) gaining 2.5% to $10.60, FireEye (FEYE) rising 1.5% to $14, Check Point adding 1% to $77.70 and Symantec (SYMC) rising 1.2% to $129.75.
