10:59 EDTFTNTCyberArk 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.

09:51 EDTFTNTFireEye called top-tier security vendor in new upgrade
Shares of FireEye (FEYE) are getting a boost after Imperial Capital highlighted the company's "significant progress" when upgrading its rating on the name. California-based FireEye is a provider of cybersecurity solutions. UPGRADE: Imperial Capital analyst Michael Kim upgraded FireEye to Outperform from In-Line this morning in a note to investors, citing a favorable risk/reward at current share levels. The stock trades at the lower valuation end of similar high-growth security vendors, Kim tells investors in a research note. He believes FireEye is making "significant progress" on driving higher sales productivity and margin expansion. Ramping global adoption of the company's platform has made FireEye a top-tier security vendor, Kim argues. He raised his price target for shares to $55 from $45.50. NOT ALONE: Kim is not alone in recommending stocks in the cybersecurity space. Analysts at Piper Jaffray and Wells Fargo last week highlighted security names that they view as attractive investments. CyberArk Software (CYBR), Barracuda Networks (CUDA) and Fortinet (FTNT) were among the stocks recommended by the firms. Piper Jaffray analyst Andrew Nowinski said the recent pullback in the sector is an attractive buying opportunity. Stocks with the most attractive valuations include Barracuda, CyberArk, Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks (PANW), he told investors last week. Wells Fargo analyst Gray Powell last week upgraded Israel-based CyberArk to Outperform from Market Perform saying the company's billings growth as well as its sales and marketing efficiencies are "exceeding peers by a wide margin. HACKS CONTINUE: High-profile cyber attacks continue with the Internal Revenue Service yesterday raising the number of accounts that were compromised in a data breach earlier this year. In May, the IRS revealed that 114,000 tax accounts through its "Get Transcript" application were exposed to thieves. Yesterday, the agency said a recent review revealed approximately 220,000 additional tax accounts may have been breached, bringing the total number of victims up to 334,000. Shares of FireEye are up 56c to $44.21 in early trading. CyberArk is up 13c to $60.06 while Proofpoint (PFPT), a company focused on securing email communication, is up 16c to $65.06.
