10:56 EDTFTNT, CUDABarracuda Networks pullback may be due to misinterpretation, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan says the sell-off in shares of Barracuda Networks (CUDA) could be due to investors misinterpreting comments from Fortinet (FTNT). The firm believes Fortinet's comments regarding focusing on the midmarket may be getting viewed as increased competition against Barracuda. JPMorgan, however, thinks both Fortinet and Barracuda are benefiting from legacy providers focusing less on the midmarket. The firm keeps an Overweight rating on Barracuda with a $39 price target.

10:59 EDTCUDA, FTNTCyberArk bucks downward market trend after Piper upgrade
The shares of Israeli cybersecurity company CyberArk (CYBR) are flat despite the large decline in the broader market after research firm Piper Jaffray upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold. The stock's decline has created an attractive entry point, as companies are becoming more interested in the type of products CyberArk offers, Piper analyst Andrew Nowinski contended. WHAT'S NEW: After conducting extensive checks, Nowinski believes that companies are becoming more interested in Privileged Account Management, the area in which CyberArk specializes. Enterprises are focusing on this area more intently because they realize they need to spend more on protecting their most critical assets within firewalls, the analyst stated. As a result of this trend, CyberArk's market share gains could accelerate, Nowinski believes. Moreover, the company is one of the few cybersecurity companies capable of generating 40%+ revenue growth and 20%+ operating margins, the analyst stated. Additionally, the company's 2016 free cash flow should come in nearly triple analysts' consensus 2016 estimate, said Nowinski, who set a $70 price target and Overweight rating on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded IT security companies include Barracuda (CUDA), Check Point (CHKP), F5 Networks (FFIV), FireEye (FEYE), Fortinet (FTNT), Imperva (IMPV), Palo Alto (PANW), Proofpoint (PFPT), Qualys (QLYS) and Symantec (SYMC). PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, CyberArk was little changed at $51 per share.
