10:29 EDTFEYEPalo Alto seen adding confidence on IT security demand
The shares of IT security company Palo Alto (PANW) are rising after the company reported stronger than expected results last night. In a note to investors today, JPMorgan wrote that the results "should help restore investor confidence" in demand for IT security systems. WHAT'S NEW: Palo Alto reported first quarter earnings per share of 35c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of 32c. The company's revenue came in at $297M, versus the consensus outlook of $284M. The IT security company provided roughly in-line Q2 EPS guidance, while its Q2 revenue guidance came in slightly above expectations. "Security remains a strategic consideration embedded in virtually every IT decision, (and) as a result, the demand environment remains very healthy, said Palo Alto CEO Mark McLaughlin. ANALYST REACTION: Palo Alto's results should boost investors' confidence in the IT security demand environment, wrote JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty. Palo Alto's results were "healthy" and the company's customer growth trends continue to be strong, the analyst stated. Moreover, the company is selling more of its products to each customer, Auty reported. As investors shift to valuing the company on cash flow, moving away from their current revenue based valuation method, the stock should rise, according to Auty, who kept a $216 price target and Overweight rating on the name. Palo Alto reported strong results, showing that the company is continuing to gain share in the new, fast growing next generation firewall and advanced threat detection market, according to Stephens analyst Jonathan Ruykhaver. Strong demand, good new products, and a wider distribution network will enable the company to deliver significant share gains and strong growth, believes the analyst, who increased his price target on the stock to $200 from $190. Also very upbeat on Palo Alto was Pacific Crest analyst Rob Owens. The company's growth continued to be "torrid" last quarter and it will clearly be among the winners in the IT security sector, wrote Owens, who raised his price target on the shares to $210 from $190 and kept an Overweight rating on the name. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Other publicly traded companies in the IT security space include Barracuda (CUDA), Check Point (CHKP), F5 Networks (FFIV), FireEye (FEYE), Fortinet (FTNT), Imperva (IMPV), Proofpoint (PFPT), Qualys (QLYS) and Symantec (SYMC). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Palo Alto climbed 7% to $184.22.

CyberArk (CYBR) is distancing itself from FireEye (FEYE), saying that the lack of security breaches won't hurt the company, Bloomberg reports, citing comments from CyberArk CEO Udi Mokady. FireEye blamed a lull in cyber attacks for its downbeat quarterly earnings, the report says. "That is totally not the case in our world," Mokady said by phone from San Francisco last week. "It's not our business model -- our model is to put in private account security ahead of time, and we're seeing increased demand, increased awareness of that." Reference Link
