11:02 EDTARUN, BLOX, JNPR, UBNT, CVLT, FIOAnalyst calls for rebound in storage/networking space
Some stocks in the IT storage and networking sector could rebound in 2014, research firm Pacific Crest wrote in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: After speaking with resellers in the IT storage and networking sector, Pacific Crest analyst Brent Bracelin reports that 54% of the resellers were above their sales targets in the fourth quarter of 2013. Storage was stronger than networking, as 80% of the storage resellers were above their targets last quarter, the analyst noted. As a result, Bracelin believes spending on storage systems could rebound in 2014. He identified EMC (EMC) as his top large cap idea in the sector. Among mid-cap stocks, Bracelin is most upbeat on Aruba Networks (ARUN), Infoblox (BLOX), and CommVault (CVLT). He calls Fusion-io (FIO) a high-risk, high-reward small-cap name, and wrote that its stock may double this year. Bracelin kept Outperform ratings on all the stocks above. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Bracelin recommends avoiding Juniper (JNPR) and Ubiquiti Networks (UBNT) due to his concerns about their networking businesses. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Aruba climbed 3% to $21.25, Infoblox lost 0.7% to $38.30, CommVault rose 0.6% to $75.65, and Fusion-IO gained 0.8% to $9.15. Meanwhile, Juniper added 0.2% to $25.85 and Ubiquiti advanced 0.6% to $44.

14:54 EDTJNPREarnings Preview: Cisco reports following Deutsche upgrade, Pac Crest downgrade
Cisco Systems (CSCO) is scheduled to report fourth quarter results after the market close on Wednesday, August 13, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Cisco, a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, sells Internet protocol-based networking and other products related to the communications and IT industry and provides related services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 53c on revenue of $12.14B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 51c-54c on revenue of $11.8B-$12.25B. Along with its last quarterly report, Cisco guided to Q4 adjusted EPS of 51c-53c and said it expects its revenue to be down 1% to 3% in the quarter compared to the prior year. At that time, the company also said it sees its FY14 adjusted EPS to come in at the higher end of its previously communicated $1.95-$2.05 range. LAST QUARTER: On May 14, Cisco reported third quarter adjusted EPS of 51c, beating the consensus analyst forecast of 48c. It's revenue came in at $11.5B, topping the $11.38B consensus forecast. Cisco reported a Q3 adjusted gross margin of about 62.7%. NEWS: On June 17, Cisco announced its intent to acquire privately held Tail-f Systems, whose products help service providers and enterprise IT organizations easily and cost-effectively implement applications, network services and solutions across networking devices. Upon completion of the acquisition, which is expected to be complete in Q4, Tail-f employees will join Cisco's Cloud and Virtualization Group. About two weeks later, tech blog Gigaom reported that Cisco has acquired British firm Assemblage for technology that uses real-time collaboration that does not require the user to download programs or plug-ins. On July 15, Cisco announced a multi-year sales and go-to-market agreement with Microsoft (MSFT) designed to modernize data centers through the delivery and acceleration of integrated solutions. Cisco and Microsoft will both invest in sales, marketing and engineering resources to drive global alignment, while delivering deeper technology integration across cloud and data center markets, the companies stated. STREET RESEARCH: On May 21, Northland said that after speaking with Cisco's management and attending Cisco Live, the firm believed that the company is taking share form Arista Networks (ANET), which has since come public. The firm added that it did not believe that Juniper (JNPR) has gained traction in data center switching and it recommended Cisco as a cyclical recovery play and a relative bargain to peers. About a week later, Deutsche Bank upgraded its rating on Cisco shares to Buy from Hold, citing expectations that the company's new product ramps in FY15 and FY16 will be stronger than expected. Deutsche said then that it saw upside to consensus estimates and raised its price target for Cisco shares to $30 from $25. On July 28, Pacific Crest downgraded its rating on Cisco shares to Sector Perform from Outperform, citing valuation and concern that the company's margin expansion could moderate in 2015. The firm believes Cisco shares are fairly valued at $26. Less than a week ago, Morgan Stanley said its checks indicate the enterprise market is improving. The firm said it expects Cisco's outlook to be conservative and said concerns over rapid software-defined networking adoption and margin impact are overblown. Morgan Stanley has an Overweight rating with a $30 price target on Cisco. PRICE ACTION: In the last three months, Cisco has advanced about 9.5%. In afternoon trading ahead of tonight's report, Cisco shares are down 0.5% to $25.01.
